LSST @ Europe: The Path to Science

*Registration Update* : v20130515

- Institute of Astronomy, University of Cambridge, UK

- 9-12 September 2013

*Early registration closing and abstract submission deadline - Fri 31 May


The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) project is now entering an
exciting phase, moving towards the start of federal construction
expected in 2014. With first light planned for 2019 and science
operations to commence in 2021, it is now timely to consider the
scientific opportunities of LSST in the era of major new European
facilities, especially wide-field missions such as Gaia, eRosita and
Euclid, and major ground based facilities such as ESO's E-ELT.

This major LSST science meeting in Europe will bring together LSST
scientists and European scientists involved in, or interested in,
taking LSST forward. This will allow for discourse as to current key
science, the role of LSST, and the role of European expertise and
facilities in partnership with LSST, in driving forward the next
astronomical science revolution into the 2020's.

The meeting will provide an opportunity to review the current status
of the LSST, and the key science programmes which are underpinning its
development. The conference will include presentations identifying
current science challenges where a combination of LSST and
major new European facilities and expertise will result in major leaps
in understanding. These topics will range from studies of our Solar
System and the Milky Way, to the Universe at the largest scales.

You are cordially invited to attend what promises to be a significant
milestone in the evolution of the LSST.


Registration is now open - see

Early registration will close *31 May 2013* - whilst late registration
will close 31 Jul 2013.

*Contributed Presentations*

The conference will have time and space for community input. Those
wishing to contribute a short talk or poster are invited to do
so. Closing date for abstracts will be *31 May 2013*. See for details.

In addition, the conference will have a dedicated twitter feed, and
those not able to attend will be able to provide input - especially to
the panel discussion session.

*Outline Programme*

The four day conference will cover the full range of science themes to
be addressed by LSST. Each session will contain a mix of invited
(currently - 20130515 - confirmed invited speakers as noted) and
contributed talks.
