LSST@Europe5: "Towards LSST Science, Together!” conference will be held in Poreč, Croatia, September 25–29, 2023.  We look forward to welcoming you in historic and picturesque Poreč, a UNESCO heritage site. Please save the date!

This conference aims to build on the successful outcomes of the first four meetings in the UK, Serbia, France, and Italy, and to further collaboratively develop LSST science opportunities. We anticipate that the Rubin Construction and Operations teams will report on the observatory construction status, data products and updated timelines. We also plan to put the emphasis on in-kind contributions, and particularly on those originating in Europe.
The meeting will be conducted in a hybrid format to enable access for remote participants and the wider Rubin/LSST community. We are planning for up to 300 in-person participants, and anticipate funds for enhancing participation by junior researchers. 
The organizers wish to express their gratitude to B612 Foundation and LSST Corporation for providing financial support for the meeting.
Registration is open. Contributed abstract submission and requests for travel support are closed.
Warning when paying by credit card: Some credit cards will not allow consecutive transactions in a short time interval, so credit card issuer should be contacted if that happens. As the accommodation, conference fee and dinner and excursions are separate charges which can trigger an alert risk,  credit card companies could block the second and following charges.
