                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 discussions of
                targeted nanotechnology topics through workshops and webinars, as well
                as community of community of research and network meetings between the
                publication date of this Notice and December 31, 2022.
                DATES: The NNCO will hold one or more workshops and webinars, as well
                as community of research and network meetings between the publication
                date of this Notice and December 31, 2022.
                ADDRESSES: Event information, including addresses, will be posted on
                nano.gov. For information about upcoming workshops and webinars, please
                visit https://www.nano.gov/resources/research-community/meetings-and-events and https://www.nano.gov/PublicWebinars. For more information on
                the networks and communities of research, please visit https://www.nano.gov/resources/research-community/networks-and-communities.
                FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For information regarding this Notice,
                please contact Patrice Pages at [email protected] or 202-517-1041.
                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 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 research may include research on
                nanoEHS; nanotechnology education; nanomedicine; nanomanufacturing; or
                other areas of potential interest to the nanotechnology community. The
                communities of research 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
                workshops is required. Workshop registration is on a first-come, first-
                served basis. Registration information will be available at https://www.nano.gov/resources/research-community/meetings-and-events.
                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 https://www.nano.gov/PublicWebinars.
                Written notices of participation for workshops, webinars, networks, or
                communities of research should be sent by email to [email protected].
                 Meeting Accommodations: Individuals requiring special accommodation
                to access any of these
                [[Page 71681]]
