Professor Sarah Brough, Australian Science Lead for the Rubin Observatory’s Legacy Survey of Space & Time (LSST) hosts a monthly online session with 1-2 short talks from each of the Australian LSST PIs or a JA they sponsor, on their LSST engagement activities, i.e. science connected to LSST.

These sessions are designed to build up Australia’s LSST community prior to the next LIEF bid submission in 2025. The monthly zoom meetings run every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 12pm Sydney time (9am in WA Oct-Mar; 10am in WA Apr-Sep). Talks run for 15 minutes each, plus time for questions.
