The workshop will be a hybrid format with the in-person venue at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, and online access for virtual attendees.

The workshop agenda will include multiple topical sessions each day, with various formats including invited and contributed talks; panel discussions; and facilitator-guided open discussion on targeted science questions. The interactive formats are intended to foster both broader and deeper collaboration and understanding amongst our community, to propel progress and enhance success by breaking down silos amongst our various subdisciplines.

Please view the Meeting Code of Conduct that applies to both in-person and online attendance.

Abstract submission is now open with extended deadline! Contributed oral presentations and poster presentations are solicited from all attendees, whether in-person or online. Input on topical discussions is also requested via the registration form. All relevant abstracts will be accepted, although oral presentation requests may be assigned as posters, depending on various factors. Abstract acceptance will be sent on or around 21 Sep 2022, or as soon as possible after that for abstracts submitted after the deadline. (Note: all presentation materials must be open to be shared in the public domain. No ITAR- or export-controlled material can be shared.)

Applications for financial support for workshop participation, including travel and dependent care, are now open! We recognize that these are trying times and have reserve some funds from the sponsoring NSF grant (1712718) to help attendees accommodate personal needs and more fully participate in the workshop. Applications are welcome regardless of in-person or online attendance. Limited awards are available and these are on an honor system. To accommodate rapidly-changing schedules and circumstances, the deadline to apply is extended until the workshop commences, 3 Oct 2022, although applications may be cut off earlier if funding runs out. Award decisions will be made as soon as possible after individual application submissions.
