Multi-Messenger Astronomy with Rubin Observatory

With the LIGO/Virgo/Kagra O4 and O5 runs coming up, this breakout session will discuss plans for Rubin Observatory's role in multi-messenger astrophysics -- including target-of-opportunity (ToO) follow-up for GW events and neutrinos from IceCube -- and the software frameworks needed to maximize science impact. All are welcome to participate.
