The Project - Science Community interface - How can we support each other

Two-way information flow between the LSST Project and the Science Community is critical for the community to prepare for LSST Operations, and for the LSST Project to buld a system that will maximize its science output.  However, identifying the subject areas and processes that will generate the most effective and efficient interactions between the LSST Project and the Science Community has been a longstanding challenge. In this session, we will tackle this issue through a structured discussion.  This discussion will be centered on recent use cases, for example lessons learned on Workflow Engine (i.e. running the Stack on different computing architecture), analysis of simulated/real images, input into commissioning and the observing strategy.
