Dan Reed named to Presidential IT Advisory Committee
Daniel A. Reed, director of NCSA, is among the 25 information technology experts President George W. Bush appointed as members of the President’s Information Technology Advisory Committee (PITAC).
The members of PITAC provide the president with expert, independent advice on maintaining America’s preeminence in advanced information technologies, including such key elements of the national IT infrastructure as high-performance computing, large-scale networking, and high-assurance software and systems design.
