These are exciting times across the LSST Project as we continue to integrate and verify hardware and software systems, and test results start to come in.
LSST 2019 thus marks a critical time for face-to-face interactions as the entire LSST Community prepares for Science.
Early bird registration is now open.
LSSTC Program for Undergraduate Researchers
For the second time at the Project & Community Workshop, we will be hosting undergraduates working on LSST-related summer research projects. Students will describe their work in a special poster session, participate in special tutorials and activities, attend the LSST2019 plenary sessions, and interact with scientists, engineers and educators for career advising. For questions regarding the Summer Intern Program, more information and contacts will be added soon.
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). The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 to promote the progress of science. NSF supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future.
