Invitation to Join: Virtual information sessions about Data Preview 0 (DP0)

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fb381586150>

The Rubin Observatory Community Engagement Team invites all individuals interested in participating in Data Preview 0 to join one of a series of identical virtual information sessions.

What is DP0? In 2021, the Rubin Observatory will release Data Preview 0 (DP0), the first of three data previews during the period leading up to the start of Rubin Operations. DP0 will make simulated LSST-like data products available in the Rubin Science Platform (RSP) to Rubin Observatory staff and up to 300 individuals from the science community (“DP0 delegates”). The goals of DP0 are to serve as an early integration test of the LSST science pipelines and the RSP, and to enable the community to prepare for early science with LSST. More information can be found in this topic about community participation in DP0 and this topic about the DP0 data set.

DP0 Information Sessions – All sessions in this series will be the same. They will begin with a brief ~10 minute presentation introducing the DP0 data sets, the Rubin Science Platform (RSP), and the application and selection process, and then there will be a ~20 minute Q&A. The sessions are being held at a variety of dates and times to enable worldwide participation. Note that the times below appear in your local time as set by your user account (hover over to see the time zone).
