PCAST may hold a closed meeting of approximately 1 hour with the President on November 4, 2010, 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. The precise date and time of this potential meeting has not yet been determined.

It is the policy of the PCAST to accept written public comments of any length, and to accommodate oral public comments whenever possible. The PCAST expects that public statements presented at its meetings will not be repetitive of previously submitted oral or written statements.

The public comment period for this meeting will take place on November 4, 2010 at a time specified in the meeting agenda.

Questions about the meeting should be directed to Dr. Deborah D. Stine, PCAST Executive Director, at [email protected], (202) 456-6006. Please note that public seating for this meeting is limited and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
