The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI): LSST Synergies

DESI is and will remain the most competitive instrument for large-scale spectroscopic surveys for the remainder of this decade, and the DESI survey is by far the largest wide-area spectroscopic survey ever done. This session will present and discuss how the DESI observations that will help to realize the primary science goals of the LSST, and the options and advantages of coordinating surveys to enhance the science goals of each. All are welcome to participate. To volunteer to present in this session, please contact the session chair(s).
