III Workshop LSST Chile:
Towards Science in Chile with LSST
13-15 Dec 2017 @ Santiago, U. Chile FCFM

Based on the success of two previous LSST-Chile Workshops on Nov 2015 and Dec 2016, we are now organizing the third version of the "Towards Science in Chile with LSST" 2017 workshop. The main motivation for this workshop is to prepare the Chilean community for the large volumes of data coming from LSST, which represent an excellent opportunity to develop world class scientific research, but which will also require addressing the data analysis problem in novel ways. With this in mind, we are organizing a three-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. Special emphasis will be on tutorial sessions about the different tools that are and will be available to the community.

The meeting will take place in the Enrique d’Etigny Auditorium of the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences of the University of Chile, in Santiago, Chile. The Workshop will start in the morning of Wednesday, 13th December 2017 and will finish on Friday, 15th December 2017. There will be no registration fees for the workshop. Coffee breaks, lunches and dinner on Wednesday 13th will be provided free of charge for all participants. In addition, young researchers or graduate students presenting work related to LSST can apply for financial support to attend the workshop. Graduate students already working on LSST-related projects applying to present their work at the meeting are strongly encouraged to apply for travel support from SOCHIAS.
