Abstract: Archive of Spectra Publicly available In Cesam (ASPIC) uses recognized LAM scientific and CeSAM (Centre de donnéeS Astrophysiques de Marseille) technical expertise to make available to the scientific community data and tools for spectroscopic massive programs. ASPIC originated from several deep galaxy surveys led at LAM or in which LAM is involved, including VVDS, zCOSMOS, VIPERS, and VUDS, cumulating a high level of expertise and international acknowledgement. It is expanded to host next generation surveys like EUCLID, PFS, or Athena. In each of these projects ASPIC has a major role: responsible for the development of the redshifts measurement and validation pipeline, 1D spectra production, spectra archiving. ASPIC is available upon request to host the spectroscopic data of any similar program originating from any country/institute. ASPIC not only makes available the spectroscopic data but also provides specific tools for value-added exploitation of the data from a user-friendly interface. The web application ANIS offers high level services which can operate directly on spectroscopic data during or after the period of operation of the mission or of the observer's program. There is no limitation on the wavelength domain of the data that can be hosted in ASPIC.
