DM Science Support: Current Plans and Anticipated Needs

This suggestion is based on recent conversations between me, @drphilmarshall, @connolly, @richardxdubois, @cclaver and @womullan.

The Science Collaborations and Project Commissioning teams are making plans to analyze the LSST data. Eventually, many analyses will involve simple use of the LSST databases and user interfaces, while others will involve extensive simulation and re-processing efforts. Meanwhile, extensive processing of simulated images, existing “precursor” data, and images from the Camera test stands is already underway, and the need for DM expertise outside of the DM team is clear. We will discuss the DM model for supporting these analyses, while the science collaborations and project subsystems are invited to present their needs and plans.
