Meeting Points of Contact

For all LSST:UK meetings there are two Meeting Points of Contacts (typically, one female and one male)  to whom attendees may report any concerns they have regarding the behaviour of other attendees, given the LSST:UK Code of Conduct. They may be approached via Zoom chat, by email, or called via a Skype Number, which they will have redirected to forward to their own mobile phone for the duration of the meeting. It is possible that both may be unavailable for some part of the meeting, so contact the second if you receive no response from the first you try.

For the All Hands Meeting, the MPoCs and their Skype Numbers are:
