AGENDA

The SAACC is now in its 10th year and serves not only to provide input and advice to the AmLight PI and the Steering Committee on program and network needs, but also as a venue for coordinating the needs of these astronomical projects and institutions to improve their resource planning and implementation of operational connections between these distant facilities and users in the continental US and Latin-American Countries.

Please email your presentation to vchergar at fiu.edu by April 15, 2016.

Proposed Agenda for the LSST NET Meeting – Thursday, April 18th, 2019
