Today Rubin Observatory sent an email with information about the onboarding process and next steps for in-kind groups that are contributing to Rubin Observatory Systems Integration and Commissioning (SIT-Com) efforts. We contacted groups participating in the
- US/Chile Commissioning Announcement of Opportunity Program and
- International In-Kind Contribution Program where the recipient group is the “Rubin Commissioning Team”.
The email was sent to the designated point of contact for each in-kind contributing group meeting the criteria above with instructions to forward the information to the other participants in the group.
We are currently collecting information from individual participants to create basic Rubin Observatory accounts, provide access to communication tools, and create computing accounts. We will also use this information to create accounts on compute clusters for software and data analysis contributions. Since we are asking that the individual participants provide their own information, please connect with the point of contact for your group to ensure that your information in provided. We are planning do a first round of account creation after 15 June.
