Announcing the 2017 KIAA-PKU Astrophysics Forum

The 2017 KIAA-PKU Astrophysics Forum

Sciences with LSST and CSST 

November 14-15, 2017

Kavli Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics Peking University



The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) will start the science operation in Chile in 2021. The Chinese Space Station Telescope (CSST) will also be launched around 2022. Both LSST and CSST will carry out multi-wavelength, deep optical photometric surveys over large sky areas. CSST will also provide the prism spectra for billions of objects. These two surveys will bring unprecedented opportunities for scientific discoveries in many fields of astronomical research, including those from solar system to cosmology, as well as time domain astronomy.   


The theme for this year's KIAA-PKU Astrophysics Forum is Sciences with LSST and CSST. We are organizing a forum to discuss various research topics and domestic/international collaborations related to these two upcoming surveys. Chinese astronomical community should be well prepared to use the observational data from these two large survey projects to do first-rate scientific research.


Topics to be covered in the Forum include:

· LSST survey sciences

· CSST survey sciences

· Advantages in combining two surveys

· Time domain astronomy

· Domestic/international collaboration
