8:00 AM
Welcome, review of status, and overview discussion (plenary).
8:30 AM
Initial break-out session. We will break into Topics rather than the Panels that we had earlier. Each Topic has been assigned to a Panel, but we expect some people will move from one group to another depending on how subtopics are assigned. We very much hope that the Panel/Topic leaders will facilitate this. The goal is to finalize the frontier area definitions including the sub-areas.
