Solar and Space Physics Decadal Survey White Papers Workshops

Purpose and Scope

This series of workshops will provide a platform for members of the CEDAR and Heliophysics communities to collaboratively present, refine, and converge on white paper ideas that will lead to high-quality submissions to the Solar and Space Physics Decadal Survey.

White paper submissions are due by April 2022, at the earliest.

The Cedar Science Steering Committee, including the Heliophysics community, and USRA/Lunar and Planetary Institute are facilitating this process in two ways:

  1. Facilitating collaborative writing sessions for identified white paper ideas: We request people or teams who are working on white paper efforts to reach out to Asti Bhatt (asti.bhatt@sri.com) and Doug Rowland (douglas.e.rowland@nasa.gov) if they need support. A grass-roots Google Sheet has been compiled to organize white papers and allow the community to join in with groups already planning to write on relevant topics: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1mn-RMMlorf-8fO0Vt-Mw1g4CC0o_RzKfBOoijgRSP_w/
  2. Organizing workshops:
    • The topic of the first virtual workshop on October 29, 2021 was Organizing the Decadal White Paper Submissions (refer to Workshop #1 tab for the agenda and related documents).
    • The topic of the second virtual workshop is Next Generation Advances in Ground-Based Solar Physics — A Decadal Preparation and is scheduled for February 22–23, 2022, and will start at 1:00 p.m. EST on both days. Refer to the Workshop #2 tab for detailed information, including the online program and presenter instructions.
    • The third virtual workshop, The Future of Ground-Based Research for Magnetospheric and ITM Physics, is scheduled for March 15–16, 2022, 1:00–5:00 p.m. EDT both days. Refer to the Workshop #3 tab for detailed information.
