How to Engage Virtually at the Rubin 2023 PCW

Virtual participation in the 2023 PCW is being offered on a best-effort basis and depends on the quality of the hotel wifi. Provided that the internet quality of the venue allows it, and that session chairs design their breakout sessions to support virtual participation, the following is a summary of what virtual participation might include.

1. Register for free

  • Virtual registration closes Wed Aug 2.
  • You must register in order to see the Zoom links, get a Slack invitation, and participate virtually.
  • If an exceptional circumstance prevented you from registering please contact us.

2. Slack

  • Accept the invitation to join the Rubin2023_PCW Slack space.
  • Invitations will be sent to all registered participants by early August.
  • Join the channels for all the plenaries and breakout sessions you’re interested in.

3. Plenaries

  • Watch the daily live-streamed plenary sessions (platform TBD).
  • Ask questions via the plenary live-stream chat feature.
  • Engage in plenary-related discussion in the Slack space.
  • If unable to join live, watch the recorded plenary.
  • Don’t forget about the Breakout Summaries plenary on Friday!

4. Breakouts offering virtual participation

  • Join the sessions in Canyon ABC or Pima, the two remote-enabled rooms (i.e., “hybrid” sessions).
  • Check the agenda to obtain the remote connection link.
  • This is on a best-effort basis, provided the hotel wifi holds out.

5. All breakouts

  • View the contributed slide decks, which session chairs will aim to have uploaded to the session webpage before the session starts.
  • Engage in breakout-related discussion in the session’s Slack channel.
  • Some session chairs might post notes afterward, either to the session webpage or to the Community Forum.

6. Virtual Asynchronous "Rubin Research Bytes"

  • All are encouraged to make virtual asynchronous contributions describing their Rubin-related research.
  • The venue is the Rubin Community Forum, where everyone may have an account and join Rubin-related discussions.
  • Your RRB can be a pre-recorded flash talk, a poster PDF, a short slide deck, or a blog-type post with plots.
