s ICF program, was held at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics (LLE), University of Rochester on 31 May-2nd June, 2017. This paper presents a detailed review on the findings from this workshop: (1) 5-10% model-model variations exist throughout the relevant parameter space, and can be much larger in regions where ionization and dissociation are occurring, (2) the D-2 EOS is particularly uncertain, with no single model able to match the available experimental data, and this drives similar uncertainties in the CH EOS, and ( 3) new experimental capabilities such as Hugoniot measurements around 100 Mbar and high-quality temperature measurements are essential to reducing EOS uncertainty.
