CEDAR Science Past the Next Decade – A Long-Term Vision

The CEDAR Strategic Plan was adopted almost 10 years ago and the next Decadal Survey is on the horizon. The Decadal Survey Midterm Assessment calls for strategic community planning that goes beyond the next decade: a long-term ~30 year vision of ambitious objectives that may also help to shape what can and should be achieved into the next decade and beyond. It is thus timely to start a discussion of CEDAR’s long-term science vision, identify the requisite technology and infrastructure developments to achieve that vision, and to establish a community-determined framework for communicating CEDAR science to the broader science and general communities. Early career scientists have a particularly strong stake in a 30-year vision. We are currently looking to discuss a wide variety of ideas and ways in which we can improve CEDAR and will solicit community input through a survey before the workshop.
