This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Notice of public meeting.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) invites interested parties to attend a pre-consortium meeting on November 8, Start Printed Page 660412011 to be held at the NIST campus, with the option of participating via web-based meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to evaluate industry interest in creating a NIST/industry/Academia consortium focused on “Concrete Rheology: Enabling Metrology (CREME)”. The goal of such a consortium could include determining key rheological parameters that best characterize the placement, finishability and consolidation of concrete. This goal would be achieved by developing test methods and models to measure and predict the performance parameters of fresh concrete in the lab and at the construction site. To move these ideas into practice and to engage industry, test bed facilities and quality control test methods for the field would be developed at NIST consortium members' participation. The consortium would be administered by NIST with consortium members' participation. Consortium planning, research and development would be conducted by NIST staff along with at least one technical representative from each participating member entities. Each member of the consortium will be required to sign a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (“CRADA”) with NIST. Membership fees for participation in the consortium will be Twenty-five Thousand ($25,000) per year. The initial term of the consortium is intended to be three years.
The meeting will take place on November 8, 2011 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in Bldg. 226/Rm. B205. For those planning to attend the meeting at the NIST Gaithersburg campus, please note admittance instructions under the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of this notice. Web-based meeting participation: Connection details can be obtained by contacting Chiara Ferraris or Nicos Martys one week prior to the meeting.
The meeting will be held on the NIST Gaithersburg campus, 100 Bureau Drive, Gaithersburg, MD 20899.Start Further Info
