DMLT Meeting

May 20, 2016 - Members of the Data Management Leadership Team (DMLT) gathered in Tucson Monday through Thursday of this week for their quarterly face-to-face meeting.  This group is collectively responsible for the stewardship of the DM construction plan and the coordination of the internal DM working groups as they execute it.  Discussion focused on progress since the February Joint Technical Review, priorities for the upcoming software release in the fall, and modifications to the DM baseline plan that reflect recent restructuring within the team.  Most of the DMLT remained in Tucson through Friday to continue working in smaller groups and to discuss topics related to the science pipeline.

Financial support for LSST comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through Cooperative Agreement No. 1258333, the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science under Contract No. DE-AC02-76SF00515, and private funding raised by the LSST Corporation. The NSF-funded LSST Project Office for construction was established as an operating center under management of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA).  The DOE-funded effort to build the LSST camera is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC).
