Meeting Overview
This meeting is designed as a small collaborative workshop to shape the ongoing roadmap contributions into a coherent vision for the LSST TVS path to science, integrating the individual subgroup contributions into a comprehensive plan for the collaboration. At this time it is critical to discuss the impact of LSST strategic decisions on the diverse range of phenomena that our group studies, and consolidate common goals.

This meeting will be limited to about 20 participants (2 per subgroup) in order to facilitate hands-on work. The meeting should produce a written document outlining skeletal roadmaps for all subgroups to be in place. During the meeting members will be made aware of the available tools (like image simulations with introduced variability and Metric Analysis) that can be used to argue their science case, and that allow the subgroups greater flexibility in forecasting their science, and furthered the goals of LSST.

Preparatory activities will include all members of each subgroup, consolidating the teams, while the subgroup representatives will gather information on the status and direction of each subgroup, and come together at the RoadMap meeting to reconcile possible differences and consolidate common goals and activities.
