Workshop: Public Meeting

ACTION: Notice of public meeting.


SUMMARY: The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO), on

provide an open forum to obtain input from stakeholders regarding the

scheduled for completion by December 2010. Representatives of the U.S. 
research community, industry, non-governmental organizations, and

likely approaches for achieving those objectives.
