Special Session on ZTF Alerts

If there is interest, I could lead a special session on the ZTF Alert Stream. We expect ZTF to have first light shortly after the meeting, and to serve a public “LSST-like” stream beginning in ~April 2018. We could discuss the surveys themselves as well as alert formats, distribution, and filtering.

For a preview, see the slides here: https://zenodo.org/record/582361 I expect by August we could be much more concrete about the implementation and offer demo code, etc.


Perhaps combine with Alert streams and Brokers
