LSST school & workshop: Getting ready for doing science with LSST data

The school is intended for advanced graduate students and post-docs interested in working with astronomical images, and in particular with the ones to be produced by the LSST. The workshop is expected to bring together experts from the LSST data management team and LSST science collaborations to discuss various topics related to astronomical image data processing at scale. This event is organized as a 1-day school, 3-days workshop and a 1-day hackaton (to be confirmed) in the same location, with no parallel sessions.

The themes to be addressed in the workshop include:

  • scientific performance of the LSST image processing software used for processing CFHT-LS and Subaru HSC data
  • pushing the accuracy frontiers in astronomical image processing reaching LSST goals in astrometric and photometric precision, milli-mag photometric calibration

  • data management best practices for the LSST era: how to ensure efficient data organization and data access suitable for LSST image processing and analysis

  • how to get the most out of parallel computing platforms

  • how to get seamless access to the LSST data for the scientific community: parallel database queries, query methods, data formats, etc.
