Spectroscopy in the Era of LSST Workshop Report

Spectroscopic follow-up observations of LSST discoveries will play an important, often critical, role in fulfilling the scientific promise of LSST. To prepare for science with LSST, NOAO will host a workshop on "Spectroscopy in the Era of LSST" on 11-12 April 2013 in Tucson. The workshop will bring together astronomers working on a wide array of LSST science topics to discuss the needs for follow-up spectroscopic facilities, instruments, and observing modes.

The goal of the workshop is to produce, for NOAO and the Ground-based OIR System, a responsive and prioritized development plan for the coming decade, so that the community will be ready to take advantage of all that LSST will offer.
