 NSF is requesting an update to the Grand Challenges in Geodesy document that was developed several years ago. We are convening a workshop “Re-examining our Grand Challenges in Geodesy” on November 8-9, 2018, on the campus of Michigan State University in East

<span style="background:white"> </span><br>
<span style="background:white">The goal of the workshop is to assess progress in geodesy over the last several years, considering both areas of significant recent progress and areas of substantial new opportunity. Limited support for travel expenses is available
 with funding from the National Science Foundation, with priority for students and early career scientists. We anticipate being able to support approximately 40 participants.</span><br>
<span style="background:white"> </span><br>
<span style="background:white">The workshop dates immediately follow the GSA meeting in nearby Indianapolis, and we can arrange transportation from there if there are enough participants attending that meeting. We will ask several participants to serve on the
 writing team, who will need to stay over the night of November 9. The remaining participants will be able to fly home the afternoon of November 9.</span><br>
