Thanks for sharing the result of this nice work.

Could you please upload lighter PDF copies with less resolution? the ARCHIVAL and CUAHSI_SUMMIT_FINAL files are really massive and take a long time to download and then to view on my machine. Zome in and out is painfully slow

It would be useful to add a 1-2 page summary of the work and its key findings. I found it hard to navigate the long list of files and materials here given my available time to spend ~ 15 min or so to get the gist of the work.
