CMB Decadal Panel White Paper Wiki

This wiki is for the CMB community. We want to ensure that science we care about gets communicated well to the decadal panel via science white papers. With this wiki we intend to have a comprehensive view of science white paper activity, making it easier for would-be contributors to join existing efforts, and also allowing us to spot gaps and work to fill them.

The call for white papers is here. It is highly recommended reading for anyone interested in contributing. We note in particular the following excerpt from the call:

White papers should:
  1. Identify scientific opportunities and compelling scientific themes for the coming decade, particularly those that have arisen from recent advances and accomplishments in astronomy and astrophysics;
  2. Describe the scientific context of the importance of these opportunities, including connections to other parts of astronomy and astrophysics and, where appropriate, to the advancement of our broader scientific understanding;
  3. While focusing on science, not specific missions or projects, describe and quantify the key advances in observation, measurement, theory, and/or computation necessary to realize the scientific opportunities within the decade 2020-2030 and beyond.
