Workshop Agenda

To best serve the goals of the workshop, the meeting will be structured to facilitate discussion among the participants. A significant time will be allotted for discussion following each oral presentation, with further opportunities during the refreshment breaks and lunches. We will have a tour of the facilities at the UW Space Science and Engineering Center on Tuesday afternoon, followed by a dinner for all participants on Tuesday evening.
