Search for Dwarf Companions of the Milky Way and Beyond

Workshop Description

The search for the faintest and most distant Milky Way companions in deep surveys is an extremely challenging data analysis problem and will benefit from years of sustained effort. This workshop brought together an international mix of senior and early-career scientists, including a critical mass of contributors to key technologies. It provided an opportunity to communicate developments and bring recognition to developers, share existing tools, and imagine new ones. We aim to inform both LSST Project software development and community efforts at developing tools for LSST dwarf galaxy science.
