We would like to inform you that the original March 15, 2021 deadline for submitting Cadence Notes has been extended to April 15, 2021. The main reason for this
extension is that the SCOC wants to ensure the community has sufficient time to incorporate the new v1.7 simulations (https://ls.st/cadsims17) into the Cadence Notes
In addition, here is a clarification of the call for Cadence Notes prompted by several questions from the colleagues preparing Cadence Notes:
please try to address our questions within the suggested 3 page limit, but please don’t skip meaningful points just so that your Cadence Note doesn’t exceed this limit. We will not reject any submissions for violating the page limit.
if it seems that what you have to say would take much longer than 3 pages, perhaps you need to submit more than one Cadence Note
if unsure, don’t agonize over it but describe your case to Zeljko in an email
(firstname.lastname@example.org) and he’ll discuss it with the SCOC and get back to you promptly.
We anticipate that in about two weeks we will release additional summary documents about existing and new cadence simulations, and tools to explore them. And lastly, a reminder that there is a lot of information about cadence optimization already available at https://community.lsst.org/c/sci/survey-strategy/37
Peter, for Zeljko, for the Survey Cadence Optimization Committee
