This is a virtual meeting on 11th - 13th May. To facilitate informal interactions, it will use a virtual conference venue in GatherTown, as well as having more conventional talk sessions delivered through Zoom.
Additionally, before the first day and after the second two days there will be two-hour GatherTown sessions in which to catch up with colleagues, read posters, and organise small group meetings. Most sessions are plenary but there are some parallel Focus Sessions.
Solar System. LSST is slated to make a significant contribution to the study of the Solar System, delivering over a billion highly precise observations of millions of Solar System objects (5mmag photometry and 10mas astrometry, per observation, at the bright end). This session will focus on how the UK community can best take advantage of the LSST dataset and leverage UK observing and follow-up resources.and contact the session organiser (@Meg Schwamb : m.schwamb at qub.ac.uk) with any questions.
Rubin-Euclid Derived Data Products Working Group (convenor: Catherine Heymans, Manda Banerji, Tom Collett, Chris Conselice, Isobel Hook) : The UK members of the Rubin-Euclid Derived Data Products Working Group (DDP-WG) seek your input on which joint data products would facilitate your science goals. This focus session will start in plenary mode to introduce the working group. We will then move to a series of different science-themed breakout room discussions. At the end of the session we'll post the ideas that have come out our LSST:UK discussion onto the international DDP-WG Forum.
Rubin Transient Science and Lasair (convenors: Stephen Smartt, Catarina Sampaio Alves, Roy Williams, Ken Smith and Andy Lawrence) : this will be an informal discussion with users of Lasair, with a particular outlook to the evolution to LSST data in comparison to the ZTF experiment we are running. We welcome contributions of any length (short flash talks, 10-15min science examples, user suggestions and requirements, early career introductions) and will structure the discussion around those. To give a talk, please contact the session organisers (@Roy Williams roy at roe.ac.uk) with any questions).
