A brief update of SSSC (Solar System Science Collaboration) happenings over the past month. A more detailed version will be sent out on the SSSC listserv.

SSSC Readiness Sprint - The Sprint will be July 10-12, 2018 at the University of Washington in Seattle. Due to the interactive nature of the workshop, we are limiting participants to ~20 people. If we have a strong interest, the working group leads will pick the attending participants. Selection of attendees will be focused on ensuring a wide variety of career stages, skill sets, perspectives, research expertise, backgrounds, and experiences are represented at the sprint. We have funding to support a number of people with partial and full funding support for flights and lodging. SSSC members interested in attending the sprint should fill out the form sent out via the listserv.

Publication Policy Questionnaire - We’ve sent out a questionnaire to gather the collaboration’s perspective on a future publication policy.

Astrometric Products - Jim Bosch gave a talk at the joint project science team science collaboration chairs call on LSST astrometric data products. The slides and video can be found at https://www.lsst.org/scientists/
