This session is primarily targeted at graduate students, postdocs, and staff members who are new to the LSST, but everyone, including undergraduate students and any staff looking for a refresher on LSST-related science and technology, are very welcome to attend. Emphasis will be placed on LSST-specific basic concepts and technical terms in order to establish a common ground for your conversations and networking activities during the PCW. There will be time for Q&A with Project staff. Please contact session organizer Melissa Graham [mlg3k AT uw DOT edu] with questions or suggestions, or if you'd like to contribute content to this session.
The slide deck in development for this session can be viewed here.
The agenda will include:
1. The PCW: how do decide which sessions to attend?
2. LSST Communications Resources
3. LSST Project 101s: project structure, telescope and site, camera, data management, education and public outreach, and systems integration
4. LSST Science 101: core science goals and concepts, documentation, and the role of science collaborations
1:30pm - 3:00pm

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.
