Rubin Data Academy, June 17-21, 2024

Rubin Observatory enthusiasts and friends,

Please join us for a Rubin DP0 Data Academy to take place on June 17-18 and 20-21, 2024.

What is the Rubin DP0 Data Academy ? The Academy has been designed as an accelerated learning experience to enable Data Preview 0 (DP0) delegates to do Rubin-related research, focusing on both the DP0.2 and the DP0.3 datasets. 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 (those are 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 (which might be slightly adjusted, as we finalize the program):

Session A (Monday-Tuesday, June 17-18, and Thursday-Friday, June 20-21, 2024):

Tutorials/demonstrations: 8:00-10:00 PDT (15:00-17:00 UTC)
Collaborative breakouts: 10:00-11:00 PDT (17:00-18:00 UTC)

Session B (Monday-Tuesday June 17-18, and Thursday, June 20, 2024):

Tutorials/demonstrations: 19:00-20:00 PDT (02:00-03:00 UTC; +1 day)
Collaborative breakouts: 20:00-21:00 PDT (03:00-04:00 UTC; +1 day)

Register at this link by Friday, June 14. The Summer School will be entirely virtual and has no registration fee. Please register if you think you may attend, to help inform our preparations. Further information, including a remote connection link, will be shared with all registrants at a later date.

Accessibility Information: The Community Science team will make this virtual workshop as accessible as we can for those attending. If there are any accommodations that would facilitate your participation, the registration form will include an anonymous request form. The virtual workshop will include automated captioning in Zoom, written instructions on slides, and breaks. All tutorials will be available in advance, and accessibility information will appear on the workshop website.

Hope you can join us!
