The CFTC has determined that holding the announced TAC meeting is in the public interest in connection with the duties imposed on the CFTC by the Commodity Exchange Act, 7 U.S.C. 1-26, as amended. Therefore, the meeting is being announced with less than the 15 calendar days' notice provided by 41 CFR 102-3.150(b). The TAC meeting will focus on three significant issues facing the futures and swaps industries as the Commission continues to finalize rules under the Dodd Frank Act. Those issues are: (1) HFT definitions; (2) protecting customer funds; and (3) FCM and DCM risk management. The meeting will be open to the public with seating on a first-come, first-served basis. Members of the public who wish to listen to the meeting by telephone may do so by calling a toll-free telephone line to contact to a live, listen-only audio feed. Call-in participants should be prepared to provide their first name, last name and affiliation. Additionally, a video recording of the meeting will be published through a link on the CFTC's Web site.

All written submissions provided to the CFTC in any form will also be published on the Web site of the CFTC.
