The workshop will focus on new ways to optimize ground/space coordination, instrument and facility development, and space mission development to best yield science in the 2020s that not only benefits from joint ​ground and space observations but requires it.  To provide a framework and focus to the discussions, we have selected exoplanets as a science case exemplar.  The workshop will bring together about 30-40 leaders from ground and space observatories, federal funding agencies, international partners, and emerging leaders in exoplanet research.    We intend to produce a document for wide community distribution, including for consideration by Astro2020.  

The workshop will take place on December 2 and 3 at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington DC and is sponsored by The Kavli Foundation, the W. M. Keck Observatory, and AURA.
