As the Rubin Observatory’s Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) moves towards commissioning and first light, the LSST Corporation moved into 2022 with a renewed sense of purpose and vision. Our extraordinary sense of accomplishment at having realized some major goals gives us momentum going into the new year.

The Rubin Observatory Project & Community Workshop (PCW) is taking place virtually from August 10-14. The daily schedule will run from 9am - 1pm (PDT).

The Science Organizing Committee consisting of Rubin Project, Operations and Community members has put together an engaging program for the meeting.

On July 7, 2020, LSSTC Senior Director of Development Dan Petrocelli and LSSTC Director for Science Jeno Sokoloski conducted a virtual workshop on creating Templeton Foundation Online Funding Inquiries (OFI). This workshop was provided as a service to our LSSTC membership. During the workshop, Dan and Jeno outlined the Templeton OFI process and shared  lessons learned from last year’s OFI workshop.
