SDSS-III Science Status

These sessions will be presented by the survey scientists from each of the 4 SDSS-III surveys.


Survey Parallel Sessions

The goals of the Survey Parallel Sessions are to:

(i) introduce the surveys to newcomers,
(ii) discuss specific tasks for people to be involved in for the coming months, and
(iii) allow detailed science presentations if people wish.

Provided are the names of the survey PI/project scientist who have agreed to run these parallel sessions and encourage you to contact them if you wish to make a presentation in the parallel session. On the day, they may wish to delegate the responsibility of running the session to someone else, but all session co-chairs should be as inclusive as possible and run the session similar to previous SDSS "working group" meetings.


The locations of each session are posted on the schedule. We have scheduled the parallel sessions in Jadwin Auditorium and in the Peyton Dome Room. Both locations support both telecon and Polycom video conferencing. Connection details will be posted on the connection information page as soon as they become available.


Directions to Jadwin Auditorium: Jadwin Hall is located on Princeton campus just South of Peyton Hall. The auditorium is on the fourth floor of the building in Room 407.


"Machine Gun" Science Session

The "Machine Gun" science session is 1 hour of free-flowing short presentations from any willing presenters. There is no need to register!


Parallel Session Summaries

Each survey will present back to the collaboration its plans for the coming months based on discussions in the parallel sessions on Monday and Tuesday afternoon. Presentations will be by someone volunteered from each of the 4 surveys.
