The LSST@Europe4 conference will take place in Rome at the historic Accademia dei Lincei on October 24 through 28, 2022 and will be conducted in a hybrid modality to enable access to remote participants.

This meeting will focus on the last phases of Construction and the transition to Operations, and on the participation of international communities in commissioning, early science, and the Science Collaborations.

In this framework, the main objectives of Rubin Observatory LSST@Europe4 are to:

  • provide an updated description of the LSST survey strategy, data products, alert system, and science opportunities that the LSST data will generate;

  • foster and promote the participation of European scientists in the activities of the Science Collaborations;

  • discuss “in-kind” contributions from international partners to the development of the Rubin Observatory project, commissioning, and enhancement of science within the Science Collaborations;

  • explore synergies with other facilities, with a special emphasis on the European ones;

  • discuss potential common initiatives at the European level to support the participation of European scientists in the survey.
