Happy February, DLF community! January was jam-packed with 2024 Forum work, and one major task was accomplished today: the release of the Call for Proposals for the in-person event at Michigan State University in July! 🎉 We hope you will consider submitting. DLF working groups were also busy last month with six different working group meetings taking place. As always,  you can take a look at who is meeting when on the Community Calendar

Looking forward to this month!
