Cadences, DDF Locations, Mini-Surveys and Survey Extensions

This will be a follow-up to the already proposed session that will be a forum on the upcoming call for White Papers on LSST Cadence and other observing strategy components. This session would allow for more in-depth presentations of different cadence algorithms, metrics and simulations, as well as different ideas of additional deep fields and their locations, and possible mini-surveys. This session would also include discussions about synergy between LSST and other surveys and what are the critical decisions about observing strategy that need to be made to optimize this synergy. This session could be opened to include a discussion of LSST ToO follow-up if that is not proposed as part of another additional session.
