Estimated attendance


Requested Specific Days

mid week if possible, early in week if not

Special technology requests


This is a programmatic / science discussion, which will include NSF, NASA, NOAA program leads outlining the Decadal Survey process and how it may align with ongoing trends / programs in the Agencies, and also a 2-hour discussion forum (community led workshop / roundtable style) where people will make the case for various science topics / investigations needed to span the next thirty years of ITM physics


The CEDAR 2021 Workshop is a prime opportunity for the ITM community to amplify the discussions that started with the Heliophysics 2050 Workshop and look forward to what new and emerging science topics should be addressed in the next and following decades. In this workshop, we provide a place for the community to learn about the next decadal survey, what the federal agencies are looking towards in the coming decades, and what community preparations are already underway. There will be discussions about agency programs and how they leverage the decadal survey, summaries from pre-decadal discussions already underway, and a whole-workshop dialog about where ITM science should go and how it fits into the expanding field of solar and space physics.
