Special Session Ideas

  1. LSST-Gaia Connection: Dana Casetti and Dave Monet (@dgmonet) recently reminded me of the importance of the LSST-Gaia interface (astrometry, photometry). We will need the actual Gaia DR2 to better understand this but some planning now might be timely.

  2. Commissioning plans.

  3. Special Surveys (Milky Way dense regions, LMC/SMC)

Hey John - Thanks for getting the ball rolling! Can you re-submit these ideas, with one idea per discussion thread and a couple of sentences about what you have in mind for the topic and goals of the sessions? This will make it easier for others to add their thoughts as well.
