The LSST2015 Project and Community Workshop will take place the week of August 17, 2015 at the Kitsap Conference Center in Bremerton, WA. This workshop will allow technical teams involved in building LSST to interact with each other and the broader community. Sessions will focus on topics of cross-cutting significance and interest, with Project Team meetings toward the beginning of the week and Community science-focused topics toward the end including the Observing Strategy Workshop. In addition, participants can self-organize additional meetings before and after LSST2015. A block agenda has been posted to help organize your participation; a detailed agenda will be posted as it is developed. Closer to the meeting date, breakout slides will be linked to the detailed agenda, available by day from the Agenda pull down menu.
