Writing White Papers for the Decadal Survey on Planetary Science and Astrobiology: Webinar for Early Career Professionals

The National Academies’ Decadal Survey on Planetary Science and Astrobiology will assess key scientific questions in planetary science and astrobiology, identify priority medium- and large-class missions and other initiatives, and present a comprehensive research strategy for the 2023–2032 timeframe. Community participation is critical for the success of the survey, and we invite early career professionals to join us for a webinar on how to write and submit white papers to the decadal survey on May 7, 2020 from 1:30-3:00 pm ET (10:30 am-12:00 pm PT).

The webinar will feature a keynote presentation from Dr. Phil Christensen of Arizona State University, a panel session with invited speakers, and a Q&A session with the audience. Speakers will discuss their experiences with writing and submitting white papers for past decadal surveys, and how white papers are reviewed during panel deliberations. 

While this event is designed for early career professionals, everyone who wants to learn more about the white paper submission process is welcome to attend. If you have further questions about the event, please contact Mia Brown at mbrown@nas.edu
