We aim to bring together experts & young researchers working on all types of supernovae. We will explore key issues from the LSST survey perspective and deliver a white paper with identified challenges and recommendations. A PUBLIC LECTURE will highlight the unique role of supernovae in understanding the evolution of the Universe.
