The Laboratory for Analytic Sciences (LAS) formally kicks off its annual planning cycle by releasing its Call for White Papers. This document describes and provides examples of research and application areas of interest for LAS. It is derived from a careful consideration of mission needs (based on discussions with IC partners) as well as the current expertise and interests of LAS-G staff.

The Call for White Papers also sets the stage for LAS Collaborators Day (now virtual Collaborators Week!) for our current and future academic and industry partners interested in working with the LAS in 2021. This event is designed to attract unique and qualified academic and industry partners who are interested in working with LAS. This afternoon-only event has traditionally consisted of an introductory session followed by an open discussion with LAS research and analytical staff.

You should prepare for this event by reviewing the research and application areas of interest in the Call for White Papers. The information provided in the document along with the discussions during LAS Collaborators Week can help you determine how your interests align with those of LAS. Please submit white papers to LAS for consideration by July 17, 2020 at 11:59 pm EDT. You will submit your white papers via the white paper submission website, where you can find detailed instructions on the submission process. We ask that you upload your white paper to the tool as an Adobe PDF.
