Planning Committee for Lessons Learned in Decadal Planning in Space Science: A Workshop
View the site for the SSB Fall 2012 Workshop: Lessons Learned in Decadal Planning in Space Science: A Workshop which took place on November 12-13, 2012 at the Beckman Center in Irvine, CA.
Statement of Task
An ad hoc committee will plan and conduct a public workshop that will review and discuss key aspects of the most recent NRC decadal surveys in space science. The workshop will focus on identifying lessons learned and best practices from the most recent surveys: solar and space physics (2012), planetary science (2011), astronomy and astrophysics (2010), and Earth science and applications from space (2007). The workshop will also review and discuss the first round of NRC mid-decade assessment reports in astronomy and astrophysics (2007), planetary science (2007), solar and space physics (2009), and Earth science and applications from space (2012). The agenda of the workshop will be designed to promote discussion among science community leaders, federal agency program managers that use and implement survey recommendations, and other identified stakeholders, with a view to identifying ideas for the future improvement of the decadal survey and mid-decade review processes. The committee will develop the agenda topics, select and invite speakers and discussants, commission individually authored summary papers from the presenters, and moderate the discussion at the workshop. A designated rapporteur will prepare a summary of the workshop.
