Breakout Sessions

  1. Near and Mid Term CNS Technology R&D Needs, Palace Ballroom West: Define critical near and mid term (next 10 years) CNS technology R&D needs.
  2. Far Term CNS Technology R&D Needs, Allen Room: Define critical far term (beyond 10 years) CNS technology R&D needs.
  3. Assessment of Current CNS Technology R&D Programs), State Room: Assess current R&D efforts in terms of what needs are being met and what needs are not being met.
  4. 2020 Operational Concepts, Roxy Room: Define operational concepts (which result in CNS R&D requirements) that can be considered to have a reasonable degree of industry consensus.
  5. Organizing the R&D Community and Advocacy, Hanna Room: Examine the level and type of organization of the CNS R&D community that is needed: does the organizational structure already exist or does it need to be created? How can such an organization effectively function in coordinating R&D activities and advocacy efforts?
