News and Activities

April 27-29, 2020; University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL

Supernovae live at the intersection of research interests of a number of the Science Collaborations of the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST). These energetic sources probe stellar physics, aid in modeling nearby multi-messenger sources, trace feedback over cosmic time, and allow us to measure the expansion history of the Universe.

Shaping the European Contribution to LSST
8-12 June 2020; Accademia dei Lincei, Rome, Italy

This conference follows the very successful LSST@Europe1 (Cambridge), 2 (Belgrade) and 3 (Lyon) workshops organized in 2013, 2016 and 2018 to foster the European participation in the Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Space and Time, as well as the analogous LSST@ASIA organized in 2019 by and for the Asian, Australian and African communities.

Ongoing Project: December 1, 2019 - December 31, 2020; Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ

During this project, we will develop a Target Observation Manager (TOM) to identify young type Ia supernovae in current and upcoming transient surveys. Our main goal is to provide candidates to be observed in the Hubble Space Telescope SIRAH program with near-infrared photometry and spectroscopy of 24 SN Ia in the smooth Hubble flow.

On-going project: January - December, 2020; Adler Planetarium, Astronomy Department, Chicago, IL

June/July 2020; Universidad de Concepción, Chile (tent.)

Due to political unrest in Chile, this meeting has been postponed until mid-2020. The meeting website will be updated with new information following the LOC and SOC meetings in January 2020 -- new submission and registration deadlines will be forthcoming.

LSSTCorp’s new Director for Science, Jennifer (Jeno) Sokoloski, comes to us from Columbia University, where she performs multi-wavelength observations of interacting binary stars and stellar transients as a Research Scientist at Columbia’s Astrophysics Laboratory.
