Discussion among scientists interested in solar system research about making necessary preparations for doing solar system science with LSST data, including identifying and developing communal analysis tools of interest to broad sections of the solar system community with the appropriate level of automation needed to cope with the LSST data stream, specifying key data products and means for accessing them that will be needed to facilitate the use of LSST data by as many interested solar system scientists as possible, and plans for a solar system alert system and possible framework for prioritizing and performing follow-up observations.

Proposed MOPS solar system data products table:


Solar System Science Collaboration overview -- David Trilling

Software development overview -- Henry Hsieh

A Small Solar System Object Platform -- Julio Camargo

General discussion, possibly including following topics:
- MOPS data schema/data products
- Funding proposals
- Software development needs
- Alert brokers
