Request for Recommendations for Membership on Directorate and 
Office Advisory Committees

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: The National Science Foundation (NSF) requests recommendations 
for membership on its scientific and technical Federal advisory 
committees. Recommendations should consist of the name of the 
submitting individual, the organization or the affiliation providing 
the member nomination, the name of the recommended individual, the 
recommended individual's curriculum vita, an expression of the 
individual's interest in serving, and the following recommended 
individual's contact information: Employment address, telephone number, 
fax number, and email address. Self-recommendations are accepted. If 
you would like to make a membership recommendation for any of the NSF 
scientific and technical Federal advisory committees, please send your 
recommendation to the appropriate committee contact person listed in 
the chart below.

ADDRESSES: The mailing address for the National Science Foundation is 
2415 Eisenhower Avenue, Alexandria, VA 22314.
    Web links to individual committee information may be found on the 
NSF website: NSF Advisory Committees.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Each Directorate and Office has an external 
advisory committee that typically meets twice a year to review and 
provide advice on program management; discuss current issues; and 
review and provide advice on the impact of policies, programs, and 
activities in the disciplines and fields encompassed by the Directorate 
or Office. In addition to Directorate and Office advisory committees, 
NSF has several committees that provide advice and recommendations on 
specific topics including: Astronomy and astrophysics; environmental 
research and education; equal opportunities in science and engineering; 
cyberinfrastructure; international science and engineering; and 
business and operations.
    A primary consideration when formulating committee membership is 
recognized knowledge, expertise, or demonstrated ability.\1\ Other 
factors that may be considered are balance among diverse institutions, 
regions, and groups underrepresented in science, technology, 
engineering, and mathematics. Committee members serve for varying term 
lengths, depending on the nature of the individual committee. Although 
we welcome the recommendations we receive, we regret that NSF will not 
be able to acknowledge or respond positively to each person who 
contacts NSF or has been recommended. NSF intends to publish a similar 
notice to this on an annual basis. NSF will keep recommendations active 
for 12 months from the date of receipt.

    \1\ Federally registered lobbyists are not eligible for 
appointment to these Federal advisory committees.

    The chart below is a listing of the committees seeking 
recommendations for membership. Recommendations should be sent to the 
contact person identified below. The chart contains web addresses where 
additional information about individual committees is available.
