Solar and Space Physics Decadal Survey White Papers Workshop #1:
Organizing the Decadal White Paper Submissions
October 29, 2021

The purpose of the first workshop was to plan for various white paper submissions to the upcoming Solar and Space Physics decadal survey. The workshop agenda included several topics that were discussed for about one-half hour each. During the workshop, the following two documents were created:

  1. Notes — Documentation of everyone's thoughts and comments. This document is open to everyone to add their thoughts.
  2. A spreadsheet of white paper ideas — The white paper topics are separated by categories on the workshop agenda. We encourage everyone to add new topics, put themselves as lead authors to new topics, and/or join existing efforts as contributors.
