                ACTION: Notice of public meetings.
                SUMMARY: The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO), on
                behalf of the Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET)
                Subcommittee of the Committee on Technology, National Science and
                Technology Council (NSTC), will facilitate stakeholder discussion of
                targeted nanotechnology topics through workshops, webinars, and
                Community of Interest meetings between the publication date of this
                Notice and December 31, 2020.
                DATES: The NNCO will hold one or more workshops, webinars, networks,
                and Community of Interest teleconferences between the publication date
                of this Notice and December 31, 2020.

                SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: These public meetings address the charge in
                the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act for NNCO
                to provide ``for public input and outreach . . . by the convening of
                regular and ongoing public discussions''. Workshop and webinar topics
                may include strategic planning; technical subjects; environmental,
                health, and safety issues related to nanomaterials (nanoEHS); business
                case studies; or other areas of potential interest to the
                nanotechnology community. Areas of focus for the Communities of
                Interest may include research on nanoEHS; nanotechnology education;
                nanomedicine; nanomanufacturing; or other areas of potential interest
                to the nanotechnology community. The Communities of Interest are not
                intended to provide any government agency with advice or
                recommendations; such action is outside of their purview.
                 Registration: Due to space limitations, pre-registration for

                Registration information will be available at Registration for the webinars will open
                approximately two weeks prior to each event and will be capped at 500
                participants or as space limitations dictate. Individuals planning to
                attend a webinar can find registration information at Written notices of participation for
                workshops, webinars, or Communities of Interest should be sent by email
