Preparing for Supernova Science in the LSST Era: A Kick-Off Workshop

Workshop Description

This workshop focused on supernova (SN) cosmology to gather approximately 50 SN researchers from both LSST institutions and the broader SN community (with a special emphasis on junior scientist participation) to discuss the new problems and needs that researchers working with LSST data will face, and to develop a plan for collaboration to cover future analysis/tests. This workshop will help prepare SN researchers for LSST data analysis, provide the SN community with state-of-the-art analysis tools, and make synergistic connections with ongoing and future cosmological surveys.
