Working Groups

Workshop Structure

This initial workshop will have a strongly educational purpose, bringing adjacent communities together that have had somewhat limited prior contact, and attempting to develop a common understanding of, and strategy for, addressing the primary R&D challenges inherent in making practical DLA devices. 50% of the meeting time is allocated for plenary sessions, with the balance being breakout sessions.

Given both the brevity of the workshop and the interdisciplinary character of most of the charge, participants will be encouraged to move between breakout sessions as the topics interest them. The working group leaders must be capable of leading the breakout groups towards a consensus response to the charge items.
