Towards Science in Chile with the LSST

Workshop Description

The main motivation for this workshop was to address how prepared the Chilean community is for the avalanche of LSST data and, more importantly, what research we hope to do with these data. With this in mind, we organized a two-day meeting in which members of the Chilean community can present and discuss their ideas to make the best use of the LSST data and multi-wavelength follow-up studies, ranging from solar system and planetary science to high redshift galaxies and cosmology. There were invited talks by key LSST players to provide context and further information from members of the community working on LSST-related projects. In addition, a few hours were spent discussing more practical aspects, including data access, computing needs, resources, Chilean representation on LSST panels, etc.
