You are strongly advised to check the solicitation page frequently and it is important you check for any updates before joining the session on Tuesday.

After the presentation, there will be a brief Q&A session. Please submit your questions no later than COB December 5th so that NASA will be able to cover as much information as possible during the workshop. If you pose a question during the call, you are asked to limit your questions to general topics only. Questions pertaining to your specific organization or institution, should be submitted in writing. This will give NASA the time to respond, in detail, to your individual needs.

The call will be recorded and transcribed. For the sake of accuracy be sure to speak slowly and clearly, be sure your questions are concise and clearly stated, and please spell anything that might be recorded incorrectly.
