[Sent on behalf of Dan Reed, CRA Board Chair, to the Computing
Research Association's contacts at academic departments and research

The NSTC Committee on Technology has asked for help in revising the
Draft Federal Plan for Advanced Networking Research and Development.
This document was developed to provide guidance to Federal agency
networking programs on networking research priorities over the next
7-8 years.  They seek your views on priority areas of networking
research and development.  Could you, or someone knowledgeable of
networking needs in your organization, please review the draft plan
and provide them with comments by September 30, 2007?

In January 2007, Dr. John Marburger, Director of OSTP, charged the
NSTC Committee on Technology to establish the Interagency Task Force
on Advanced Networking (ITFAN).  The Charge and Terms of Reference
directed ITFAN to develop an interagency Federal Plan for Advanced
Networking Research and Development to provide input to the FY 2009
Federal budget planning cycle. A Draft Interim Report was delivered
May 15.

To finalize this report they are seeking inputs from the wide
spectrum of the networking research and development communities
including university, Federal laboratory, and commercial researchers
and developers.  The final report will provide input to the Federal
agencies for the FY 2010 and beyond Federal budget planning cycles.
The report including the Charge, Terms of Reference, and findings can
be found at the Web site:


or at:

www.nitrd.gov under “What’s New’, “Solicitation for comment …”

In addition to providing the Draft Interim Report, this Web site
provides guidance and formats for providing comments.

They ask that you provide them, by September 30, 2007, your comments,
suggestions, and additions on the information and networking research
priorities to finalize this report.  Your comments and perspective
are important to provide a broad understanding and perspective on
future networking needs and priorities.

Thank you,
Dan Reed
CRA Board Chair
