LSST:UK All-Hands Meeting (Cardiff, 13-15 May 2019) Registration deadline: Monday, 6 May at 16:00April 29, 2019, from Sian Giles-Titcombe
The LSST:UK Consortium is holding an all-hands meeting in Cardiff from 13-15 May and wishes to invite all those interested in UK involvement in LSST to attend. This meeting is open to all, not just those who have been involved in LSST:UK to date.
This meeting takes place at an important point for LSST and for LSST:UK. Telescope construction is nearing a successful conclusion in Chile and the Project is now starting to focus on plans for Commissioning and models for survey operations, while, in the UK, the STFC-funded LSST:UK Science Centre (LUSC) project is reaching the end of its Phase A (“Development”) and starting Phase B (“Commissioning”).
Invited speakers will review progress from LUSC Phase A and plans for Phase B, and there will be a number of contributed talks given by members of the wider LSST:UK community who participate in the international LSST Science Collaborations.
With the start of LSST Commissioning now less than 18 months away, this is a very good time for all those interested in LSST to gather and discuss preparation for the start of LSST survey operations in 2022.
