PCAST Review of the National Nanotechnology Initiative - Live Webcast on March 12th

Washington, DC | Posted on March 11th, 2010

Tentative Agenda

Federal Register Notice
(www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/microsites/ostp/pcast-march-fedreg.pdf)

At each meeting, there will be a public comment session. To be considered for the public speaker list at a PCAST meeting, interested parties should register to speak when registration becomes available on this web site. Phone call or e-mail reservations will not be accepted.

To accommodate as many speakers as possible, the time for public comments will be limited to two (2) minutes per person, with a total public comment period not to exceed 30 minutes. If more speakers register than there is space available on the agenda, PCAST will randomly select speakers from among those who applied. Those not selected to present oral comments may always file written comments with the committee. Speakers are requested to bring at least 35 copies of their oral comments for distribution to the participants and public at the meeting.

Although written comments are accepted until the date of the meeting, written comments should be submitted to PCAST at least two weeks prior to each meeting date so that the comments may be made available to the PCAST members prior to the meeting for their consideration. To submit comments, please visit Connect with PCAST (www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/ostp/pcast/connect).

Please note that because PCAST operates under the provisions of FACA, all public comments and/or presentations will be treated as public documents and will be made available for public inspection, including being posted on the PCAST web site.

Future PCAST meetings are tentatively scheduled for the following dates:

May 20-21, 2010
July 15-16, 2010
September 1-2, 2010
November 3-4, 2010

About Office of Science and Technology Policy
Congress established the Office of Science and Technology Policy in 1976 with a broad mandate to advise the President and others within the Executive Office of the President on the effects of science and technology on domestic and international affairs. The 1976 Act also authorizes OSTP to lead interagency efforts to develop and implement sound science and technology policies and budgets, and to work with the private sector, state and local governments, the science and higher education communities, and other nations toward this end.

OSTP's Mission
The mission of the Office of Science and Technology Policy is threefold; first, to provide the President and his senior staff with accurate, relevant, and timely scientific and technical advice on all matters of consequence; second, to ensure that the policies of the Executive Branch are informed by sound science; and third, to ensure that the scientific and technical work of the Executive Branch is properly coordinated so as to provide the greatest benefit to society.
