  • 28 June - Warning: The organisers of this meeting or our conference agency will NOT email you to offer travel or accommodation. A common scam is that names are harvested off a conference website and people targetted with fake agency/organiser emails. Do NOT take up such offers, and contact us in case of doubt. You can book accommodation through us but only by following the links on this website, and we give general travel advice but will not provide any further assistance or offer help. We will not publish a list of participants.

This conference aims to build on the successful outcomes of the first five meetings in the UK, Serbia, France, Italy, and Croatia, and to further collaboratively develop LSST science opportunities. We anticipate that the Rubin Construction and Operations teams will report on the observatory construction status, data products and updated timelines. We also plan to put the emphasis on in-kind contributions, and particularly on those originating in Europe.

The meeting will be conducted in a hybrid format to enable access for remote participants and the wider Rubin/LSST community. We are limited to 200 in-person participants, and offer conference fee waivers and reductions to enhance participation (see Registration page for details).
