President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (Nov 2011)

November 2, 2011
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

During this open meeting, PCAST is tentatively scheduled to hear from speakers who will provide an overview of two reports—one on innovation and job creation, and another on government held spectrum. In addition, several agencies will update PCAST on the implementation status of the recommendations it made in its report on nanotechnology. PCAST will also receive an update on the status of several of its studies. Additional information and the agenda, including any changes that arise, will be posted at the PCAST Web site at:

PCAST may hold a closed meeting of approximately 1 hour with the President on November 2, 2011, which must take place in the White House for the President’s scheduling convenience and to maintain Secret Service protection. This meeting will be closed to the public because such portion of the meeting is likely to disclose matters that are to be kept secret in the interest of national defense or foreign policy.
