The LINCC Frameworks team is working on robust open-source software tools to support the analysis of LSST data at scale, and a key part of this effort is the formation of collaborations with the LSST science community.
Incubators will provide dedicated funding and collaborations with software engineers to proposal teams who pitch compelling projects to be carried out in collaboration with the LINCC Frameworks team. Incubator projects should be aimed at solving computational challenges to develop open-source software that will enable a near-term science project using simulations and precursor data and that serves as a starting point towards eventual LSST data analysis.
The upcoming Incubator program starts in the third quarter of 2023, and the deadline for short, stage-one proposals is June 15, 2023. View the call for proposals for full details. If you miss this deadline, there will be many future cohorts. Check our calendar for deadlines.
