DP0 Virtual Summer School, June 12-16, 2023

Hello Rubin Observatory enthusiasts,

Please join us for a DP0 Virtual Summer School from June 12-16, 2023.

What is the Summer School? This Summer School has been designed as an accelerated learning experience to enable Data Preview 0 (DP0) delegates to do Rubin-related research, focusing on the DP0.2 dataset. Much of the time will be spent on live virtual hands-on tutorials focused on various aspects of DP0 data access, visualization, and processing. Some time will be dedicated to collaborative (breakout) sessions where delegates can interact more informally.

Who? The tutorial sessions assume no prior knowledge of the Rubin/DP0/Science Platform ecosystem. All DP0 delegates* are invited to attend and participate – even experienced delegates may wish to attend for the collaborative period each day.

*Not a DP0 delegate yet? There are spaces available for Rubin data-rights holders. (All scientists and students affiliated with an institution in the US and Chile have data rights, as well as the international scientists and students whose names appear on the list of international data rights holders.) Visit the DP0 Getting Started Checklist and follow the instructions to become a DP0 delegate.

When? To provide opportunities for delegates from all time zones there will be two sessions daily. All sessions are open to all delegates. Detailed schedules:
