What is a Rubin Research Byte (RRB)?
An RRB is a short ~4 minute flash talk on Rubin-related scientific research, engineering, or software. During the Rubin 2021 PCW, the 60-minute RRB session will have ~8 breakout rooms organized by topic, with ~4 speakers and ~2 moderators per room. Each speaker will give their ~4 minute flash talk and then there will be ~10 minutes for panel-style Q&A at the end. At the 28-minute mark, the audience will switch breakout rooms while speakers and moderators stay in the same room and repeat the talks and Q&A for a new audience. Thus, all speakers give their talk twice, and all audience members see a total of 8 flash talks.

Interested in volunteering as a moderator?
That’s awesome, thank you! Please send a direct message or email to Melissa Graham. Include a list of example topics you’d be willing to moderate.
