The international 2016 LSST Galaxies Workshop brought the US and UK “Galaxies” communities together for the first time since the UK joined LSST. The workshop helped develop strong links between the two communities, which will enable the UK to maximize its participation in the LSST science program and identify areas where the UK can offer leadership and contribute significantly to LSST science (e.g., theoretical modeling, low surface-brightness science, combination of LSST data with current and future “UK/European” datasets [the SKA and its precursors, Euclid, etc.], and citizen science via Galaxy Zoo).
