2:45 pm–4:15 pm Breakout Sessions

Participants will choose a theme and can suggest other themes. The idea is to have group discussions on Thursday and Friday in the afternoon about challenges and visions for solutions and discoveries related to the subject. The group will produce a report that Priscila and Daniela will aggregate to a final report to NSF/DHS/MCTI. Each group will do a 10 min presentation on Friday with the summary of the findings. If a theme does not have enough representation, it will be removed. We are looking for session leaders and scribes!
