We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.


ZOOM meetings Lab policy: You absolutely must not post Zoom meeting IDs on any public website unless you set a password to protect the meeting/event. Of course, do not post the password on any public website, either.
For details please refer to the news article https://news.fnal.gov/2020/05/security-guidelines-for-zoom-meetings-2/ Zoom information should be either given on email request or stored on a SharePoint page behind SSO".
Do NOT post the zoom information in the field 'Venue/Location' since it will show in the weekly Calendar even if the event is protected!

The goal of this workshop is to make progress on science analyses using data from the Blanco Images of the Southern Sky (BLISS) survey. BLISS aims to establish complete griz Blanco/DECam coverage of the extra-galactic sky below declination 30 degrees with 3x90 second exposures by selectively imaging areas where such coverage is lacking. Three areas of ongoing activities are:
  • multi-messenger astronomy with gravitational waves,
  • searches for the hypothesized 9th planet in our solar system, and
  • completion of the deepest unbiased survey of Milky Way satellite galaxies in the southern hemisphere.
Other science areas will also be pursued by the group, e.g.:
  • search for lensed quasars
  • galaxy clusters
  • photometric redshifts
  • variable stars
BLISS optimizes data taking efficiency by filling the sky around previously surveyed areas and other community time programs, complementing them with additional bands and/or depth as needed. Accomplishing full sky coverage before the start of LSST is essential to maximize the science returns of DECam.

BLISS images are made publicly available immediately. A series of public data releases of processed images and catalogs are also being planned and will be discussed at the workshop.
