An ad hoc committee will convene a series of three 2-day public workshops to discuss issues in defense materials, manufacturing and infrastructure including: 1) Globalization of Defense Materials and Manufacturing; 2) Big Data in Materials Research and Development; and 3) Materials State Awareness. The committee will develop the agendas for the workshops, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions. The workshops will use a mix of individual presentations, panels, and question-and-answer sessions to develop an understanding of the relevant issues. The workshop topics will highlight some recent developments in the fields. Key stakeholders will be identified and invited to participate. Individually authored workshop summaries will be prepared separately by a designated rapporteur after each workshop in this series.
