DP0 Virtual Summer School 2023

Dates: June 12-16 2023

Times: TBD

Location: virtual (Zoom)


Information about the agenda and registration are coming soon.


Data Preview 0.2 (DP0.2), which was released on June 30 2022, is based on simulated Legacy Survey for Space and Time (LSST)-like images that were generated by the Dark Energy Science Collaboration (DESC), and then processed by the LSST Science Pipelines to provide data products in the same format as future (real) data releases. These data products can be accessed and analyzed by the web-based Rubin Science Platform (RSP).

The goal of this DP0 Virtual Summer School is to introduce any data-right holding scientist (from undergraduate student to faculty/staff) to the DP0.2 dataset and the RSP and to provide an accelerated learning experience enabling research on Rubin data with a focus on the DP0.2 dataset. In order to develop a thriving Rubin science community, another key goal of the Virtual Summer School is to provide opportunities for networking, collaboration, and new-skill acquisition for participants.

The Virtual Summer School will span 5 days between June 12 - 16, where each day will be split into two ~2-3 hr sessions to accommodate the international time-zones of the participants. Each day will cover key utilities of the RSP (e.g. Catalogs, Images, Butler) with guided tutorials by members of the Rubin Community Engagement Team, and there will be dedicated time for collaborative discussions and hack sessions. The primary meeting platform will be Zoom.

Eligibility: All DP0 delegates will be eligible to participate in the DP0 Virtual Summer School. For more information about how to become a delegate, see the Getting started with DP0 checklist.
