Proposed topics - revised November 2018

We hope to collect white papers before the end of October. They are to be submitted to the National Academy in January and should be no more than 5 pages each. Note the National Academy's instructions: "Authors should focus their white papers on the detailed presentation of fundamental and important science opportunities, rather than on broad or general studies. White papers will be of most use if they identify directly specific critical questions and opportunities as well as the potential measurements and/or theoretical advances that will address them."
