\ Appendix C WORKSHOP ORGANIZERS I NATIONAL MATERIALS ADVISORY BOARD The National Materials Advisory Board is the preeminent source of independent materials assessments for the nation. Board studies deal with the entire life cycle of materials, from mining and synthesis to manufacturing, service performance, and recycling/disposal. The board achieves a balanced view by having access to the expertise of all sectors of society concerned with materials. The board's structure and mode of operation enhance the quality of its output while minimizing the influence of vested interests. Board assessments of new materials and processing methods focus attention on policy issues with significant technology content. Board activities should create broader awareness and advocacy for materials issues. Board output can assist decision makers in setting priorities for optimum deployment of the available resources. www.nationalacademies.org/nmab SOLID STATE SCIENCES COMMITTEE 1 The Solid State Sciences Committee, part of the NRC's Board on Physics and Astronomy, is a continuing interdisciplinary body whose members have expertise in solid-state physics, solid-state chemistry, electronic materials, metallurgy, polymers, and the basic materials science aspects of ceramics. The committee identifies and makes recommendations on the needs of the materials research, development, and applications communities, particularly in connection with research opportunities and support, and it provides guidance to federal agencies regarding their materials science research programs. www.nationalacademies.org/bpa/sssc UNIVERSITY MATERIALS COUNCIL The University Materials Council is composed of department heads, chairpersons, directors, and group leaders from academic programs in the materials field in U.S. and Canadian universities. The council meets twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. It serves as a forum for department heads, chairs, and directors of materials programs to share best practices in areas such as student recruitment and discuss issues such as accreditation from the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), emerging research areas, ideas for curricular improvements, patent right policies in universities, implications of the latest materials-related studies, and the health of research funding for materials science and engineering, as well as a variety of other issues of interest to the academic community. It also conducts surveys to benchmark enrollments, degrees awarded, faculty salaries, research funding, and graduate student stipends and holds discussions at its meetings on the latest trends gleaned from the surveys. The 37

council also maintains liaisons with prominent materials societies and with bodies such as the National Materials Advisory Board and the Federation of Materials Societies. www.tms.org: 100/ BOARD ON MANUFACTURING AND ENGINEERING DESIGN The Board on Manufacturing ant! Engineering Design provides inclependent assessment of technical ant] public policy issues relating to product design and realization. Composecl of leaders in manufacturing, engineering design, and complementary fields from academia ant! industry, the boars! provides a unique perspective on technical, economic, social, ant! policy issues. The board carries out stuclies, workshops, and other activities to foster a better unclerstancling of manufacturing and design issues. Its projects engage balances! groups of experts to develop insightful analyses of the role of manufacturing and engineering design in our world. www.nationalacademies.org/bmed 38 1' ,,
