9-10 December 2019; Universidad de Concepción, Chile
Based on the success of the LSST in Chile Workshops started in Nov 2015, applications are being accepted for this fifth meeting. This workshop will prepare the Chilean community for the large volumes of data coming from LSST, which represent an excellent opportunity to develop world class scientific research in astronomy, but which will also require addressing the data analysis problem in novel ways. The workshop will encompass a two-day meeting in which members of the Chilean community may present and discuss their ideas to make the best use of the LSST data and multi wavelength follow-up studies, ranging from solar system and planetary science to high redshift galaxies and cosmology. Special emphasis will be on tutorial sessions about the different tools that are and will be available to the community.
The meeting will take place at the main campus of the Universidad de Concepción, in Concepción, Chile. The workshop will start in the morning of Monday, December 9th, 2019 and will finish on Tuesday, December 10th, 2019. There will be no registration fees for the workshop. Coffee breaks, lunches and dinner on Monday, December 9th will be provided free of charge for all participants. In addition, young researchers or graduate students may apply for financial support to attend the workshop. Graduate students already working on LSST-related projects applying to present their work at the meeting are strongly encouraged to request financial support. The deadline for travel grant and oral contribution applications is November 15th, 2019.
