Proposed New Category in Science: “External Synergies”

Name: “External Synergies Science” (proposed to be a sub-category of “Science”)

Motivation : Discussions around enhancing the Rubin science through external synergies has been gaining momentum recently. There is not currently a dedicated area on for people to discuss external synergies. The Rubin Observatory pre-operations teams wants to stimulate more discussion on early LSST science and this category will help with that.

“About the External Synergies category” Topic text: For scientific and technical discussions related to
discussions surrounding opportunities for enabling new science by combining data from Rubin and other facilities, such as Euclid, the Roman Space Telescope, SPHEREx, CMB experiments, etc. Everyone should feel welcome to participate by posting new Topics and threaded replies about alerts and brokers.
[Followed by the “new to community” content in all “About the …” topics.]

The default security settings will be adequate for this category (i.e, publicly visible, and any logged-in user can make new topics and replies).
