LSST Corp and the Simons Center for Computational Astrophysics announce an LSST Cadence Hackathon at the Flatiron Institute in Manhattan, 2018 Sep 17-19 (last day optional). The purpose of this workshop is to identify cadence strategies that maximize the scientific output of LSST for all eight Science Collaborations. At the Hackathon, participants from different Science Collaborations will work together in small teams to explore creative cadence strategies with the help of experts in the OpSim and MAF software packages. Members of teams that come up with the most promising strategies will each receive a modest honorarium for writing up their ideas as white papers.
