Proposal Review; Notice of Meetings

In accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Pub. L. 92-
463, as amended), the National Science Foundation (NSF) announces its
intent to hold proposal review meetings throughout the year. The
purpose of these meetings is to provide advice and recommendations
concerning proposals submitted to the NSF for financial support. The
agenda for each of these meetings is to review and evaluate proposals
as part of the selection process for awards. The review and evaluation
may also include assessment of the progress of awarded proposals. The
majority of these meetings will take place at NSF, 4201 Wilson Blvd.,
Arlington, Virginia 22230.

These meetings will be closed to the public. The proposals being
reviewed include information of a proprietary or confidential nature,
including technical information; financial data, such as salaries; and
personal information concerning individuals associated with the
proposals. These matters are exempt under 5 U.S.C. 552b(c), (4) and (6)
of the Government in the Sunshine Act. NSF will continue to review the
agenda and merits of each meeting for overall compliance of the Federal
Advisory Committee Act.

These closed proposal review meetings will not be announced on an
individual basis in the Federal Register. NSF intends to publish a
notice similar to this on a quarterly basis. For an advance listing of
the closed proposal review meetings that include the names of the
proposal review panel and the time, date, place, and any information on
changes, corrections, or cancellations, please visit the NSF Web site: This information may also be requested by telephoning (703) 292-8182.

Dated: August 25, 2004.
Susanne Bolton,
Committee Management Officer.
