As noted in the call for white papers, there is some overlap between the COSEP (https://github.com/LSSTScienceCollaborations/ObservingStrategy) and the white papers submitted in response to this call.
We are hoping to resolve this overlap by consolidating the topics (and metrics) described in the white papers into the COSEP - (per this line from the call):
“We anticipate that the performance evaluation components of the white papers solicited here
will also be added to the COSEP, to provide a comprehensive reference point for survey strategy
To make it explicit, this means that:
- we’d like to make the submitted white papers (or sections of them) public
- it would be great if you wanted to help incorporate white papers (especially if you only want to use specific portions) into the COSEP - we can help figure out how to make this as painless as possible
- if you just want to say “add any or all of this to the COSEP as you see fit”, that’s totally ok too … just please be sure to send us your source files for the white paper when you submit it as well as the compiled PDF. You’ve already done a lot of work writing the white paper, and we will primarily be pasting your work (science justification + performance evaluation) into the COSEP in an appropriate place. We can send you a link to review the resulting additions to the COSEP when it’s ready.
Please let me know about any comments or concerns.
