In addition to its broader multi-disciplinary annual summer science workshop, the OCB Project Office provides limited support for focused scoping workshops that target specific OCB research priorities, providing a public venue for members of the research community to discuss research challenges and implementation approaches. For more information, please consult the guidelines for planning OCB scoping workshops. Click here for more information on OCB activity solicitations (every 1-2 years).
