The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. and continue until 4:30 p.m. Although most of the meeting is open to the public, the session between 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. will be closed in order to permit the Privacy Advisory Committee members to discuss administrative and planning items, including the schedule for future Committee and Subcommittee meetings and a timeline for possible Subcommittee reports to the full Committee.

At the meeting, the Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson of the Committee will announce the Committee's goals, as well as introduce the Subcommittees and their respective Chairpersons. In the morning, there will be panel presentations from DHS officials and Committee discussion about screening programs within DHS. In the afternoon, there will be panel presentations from privacy and technology experts and Committee discussion on screening, data mining, and technology issues.

At two points during the meeting, between 12 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. and between 3:45 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., public comments will be accepted. All those who wish to testify may register in advance or sign-up on the day of the meeting and, in order to allow as many people as possible to testify, should limit their remarks to three minutes.
