The deadline to register and book a hotel room is July 9th.
It'll be an exciting week of face-to-face interactions during this critical time! As integration of hardware and software brings us closer to having a functioning telescope system, commisioning is ramping up and the LSST Community prepares for Science.
A workshop on the impacts of blending on LSST science will be held as an integrated part of LSST 2018, on Tuesday through Thursday, August 14 - 16, 2018. The workshop will focus expertise across the LSST community on assessing our current understanding of blending issues.
Financial support for Rubin Observatory 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 Rubin Observatory 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 Rubin Observatory LSST Camera (LSSTCam) 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.
NSF and DOE will continue to support Rubin Observatory in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
