As the study title ("A Community Assessment") indicates, the SSP study is intended to reflect the thinking of the broader solar and space physics communities on future research directions and priorities. Members of the various research communities are thus encouraged to "take ownership" of the study and to communicate their ideas, concerns, and recommendations to the Survey Committee and the study panels. Interested individuals can make their views known to the Committee and panels in several ways: through participation in one of the study-related forums or workshops that have been scheduled; by responding to on-line questionnaires; and by contacting Committee/panel members directly.
