AAL was proud to host the 2021 Australian LSST Workshop, held online on Monday 13 Dec 2021 from noon-5pm AEDT (9am-2pm AWST).
Australian Science Lead for the Rubin Observatory’s Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST), Prof. Sarah Brough, provided an update on our in-kind contributions and funding to secure LSST data access rights for 47 Australian PIs (and a further 188 Junior Associates). After that, we heard from presenters on recent work relating to the LSST or the various LSST Science Collaborations, and discussed how we can all help build a better LSST@Australia community for everybody.
There was no workshop registration fee.
For those unable to attend live, we were able to present a pre-recorded presentation on your behalf, as well as provide a temporary link to a recording of the workshop on request. Please contact Sarah Brough ([email protected]) or Stuart Ryder ([email protected]) if you have any questions about the event. We were very happy to see so many of you online during the event!
