We would like to extend a warm thank you to everyone who helped to make this event such a success. This includes all guests who took time out of their busy week to attend both in person and via webcast, our dedicated Summit Planning Committee, participating members of the National Academies staff, and all of our outstanding speakers. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsor, The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, for providing us the opportunity to carry out this innovative and important project.

Please remember that the Summit was just the beginning of a larger two-year project. We will now begin the process of sorting through the list of nominated individuals and hope to have the committee formed by January 2017. We anticipate our first meeting being held in February 2017. Please continue to monitor our decadal survey website (, as project updates will be posted regularly.
