Next PCAST Meeting Returns To NITRD And Ponders Getting Older

The next meeting of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) takes place on July 14 at the National Academies in Washington, D.C.  While this is not on a Friday (as has been the custom) the public portion of the meeting will still be from 9 a.m. to noon Eastern time.  No agenda is available at this time at the PCAST website, but the Federal Register notice provides some indication of what will be discussed.

The PCAST will discuss its review of the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) program.  PCAST is obligated to do this review periodically, and the next report would be its third during the Obama Administration.  Also scheduled for the meeting are presentations on aging and for human spaceflight.  My past experience suggests that comments on space exploration will dominate the public comment session scheduled for the meeting.

You will be able to view the meeting live on the 14th, through the usual webcast provider.  A more detailed agenda should be available by the beginning of July.
