Crowded Fields This sub-category will host technical and scientific discussions related to crowded fields for the Rubin Observatory LSST, including project deliverables, in-kind contributions, and community efforts. Everyone should feel welcome to participate by posting new Topics and threaded replies. This sub-category will be moderated by Colin Slater, who will endeavor to ensure no question goes unanswered. Additional motivation for this sub-category is in this Meta topic. Alerts & Brokers For technical and scientific discussions related to alerts and brokers. This includes alerts from the Rubin Observatory LSST, as well as other relevant surveys. Everyone should feel welcome to participate by posting new Topics and threaded replies about alerts and brokers. Data Q&A Ask science questions about LSST data products and the Science Platform. Questions will be monitored by the Data Management team and answered in a timely fashion. Independent Data Access Centers This sub-category will host technical and scientific discussions related to independent data access centers (IDACs) for the Rubin Observatory LSST, including project deliverables, in-kind contributions, and community efforts. Everyone should feel welcome to participate by posting new Topics and threaded replies. This sub-category will be moderated by Knut Olsen, who will endeavor to ensure no question goes unanswered.

Statistics Q&A The Informatics and Statistics Science Collaboration (ISSC) encourages statistics-related questions on all topics related to astronomical data analysis, from beginners to experts. Everyone should feel welcome to respond to postings and discuss topics. This category will be moderated by volunteers from the ISSC who are eager to share their expertise with the Rubin science community. New topics in this category will also appear in the LSSTC Slack channel #issc-ask-the-issc, and might be casually discussed there as well, but it is preferable to have most of the discussion occur in this Community Forum where it will remain openly available. Milky Way (Open) Public discussions about galactic and local volume astronomy with LSST. LSST2016 Suggest topics and sessions for the 2016 Project & Community Workshop. Survey Strategy Ask programatic, science and technical questions about "White Papers for LSST Cadence Optimization”. LSST2017 Suggest topics and sessions for the LSST2017 Project & Community Workshop. LSST2018 Suggest topics and sessions for the LSST2018 Project & Community Workshop. Photometric Redshifts This sub-category will host technical and scientific discussions related to photometric redshifts for the Rubin Observatory LSST, including project deliverables, in-kind contributions, and community efforts. Everyone should feel welcome to participate by posting new Topics and threaded replies. This sub-category will be moderated by Melissa Graham, who will endeavor to ensure no question goes unanswered.
