White paper contributions

The workshop leadership group has prepared draft community whitepapers against workshop topics and is inviting contributions and community review. Contributors have been indentified through the "Registration of interest" survey which ran in summer 2012.


 Four community whitepapers are being coordinated to collate information on the following topics:

To contribute to the white papers please download the relevant files and follow the INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONTRIBUTORS (pdf).


When making a contribution it is important to keep in mind:

  • Please keep your contributions clear and concise
  • Do not place significant attention on the introduction and conclusion
  • Please include citations

By clicking the corresponding email link(s) below to submit your abstract an automatic email window will be created with already pre-filled To/Cc fields and Subject line. When ready please just attach the revised word-doc to the email and send it.
