For the Decadal Survey on Astronomy and Astrophysics (Astro2020), the National Academies and the astronomical community works together to identify key priorities in astronomy and astrophysics and develop a comprehensive strategy for agency investments in the upcoming decade. This is done in form of "white papers" that are submitted to the National Academies.
The scientists at IPAC are important contributors to this effort. In total, more than 60 science white papers have been submitted with IPAC contribution, 11 of these are led by IPAC scientists.
