2020 has been a pivotal year for the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST), to be carried out by the Vera C. Rubin Observatory. A virtual half-day workshop was held on Monday 14 Dec 2020 at which Australian Science Lead for the LSST, Prof. Sarah Brough updated the community on the in-kind proposal process underway to secure data access rights for at least 35 Australian PIs (and up to 4 Junior Researchers each). Following that was a series of short presentations about work that Australian researchers and their groups are currently involved in that relate to the LSST, the various LSST Science Collaborations, or that in some way will help add value to our LSST engagement. A transcript of the Q&A via Zoom Chat following some of the talks is also available.
