Notice of Intent Due March 20 for Astro2020 White Papers on Activities, Projects, and the State of the Profession

To aid in survey preparation and to ensure that the Astro2020 decadal survey committee and panels have the necessary expertise, the decadal survey is requesting short notices of future intent (NOIs) to submit white papers on activities, projects, or state of the profession considerations, referred to as APC white papers. We request that you submit a very short NOI no later than March 20, 2019, if you plan to submit a white paper on an activity, project, or state of the profession consideration. Note that the APC white papers are distinct from the science-focused white papers that are due March 11, 2019. An NOI is not required for future APC white paper submission, but it is strongly encouraged to help facilitate decadal planning. We request that only one NOI be submitted per APC team.
