About the series
The Astronomy and Astrophysics Advisory Committee is a federal advisory committee chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act. This meeting is to brief the AAAC on the Portfolio Review report recommendations. The AST portfolio review committee was charged with recommending critical capabilities over the period of 2015 to 2015 with a balance of investments in new and existing grants programs, facilities, and other activities. The briefing will provide the AAAC with information that will assist it in the future in providing its advice to NSF, NASA, and DOE on issues within the field of astronomy and astrophysics that are of mutual interest and concern to the agencies.
