28th NCNR/CHRNS School on Neutron Scattering Application
OMB Control #: 0693-0081
Expiration Date: 12/31/2024
A Federal agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with an information collection subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 unless the information collection has a currently valid OMB Control Number. The approved OMB Control Number for this information collection is 0693-0081. Without this approval, we could not conduct this survey/information collection. Public reporting for this information collection is estimated to be approximately 1 hour per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the information collection. All responses to this information collection are voluntary/mandatory/required to obtain benefits. Send comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of this information collection, including suggestions for reducing this burden to the NIST Center for Neutron Research at: 100 Bureau Drive, Mail Stop: 6102, Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070, Attn: Przemek Klosowski at

The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) is a National User Facility for neutron scattering research. Its primary function is scientific research and development of methods for measuring physical and chemical properties of matter, in collaboration with external users of the facility. Information is collected in support of soliciting and reviewing proposals for scientific experiments at NCNR, allocating instrument time, managing the resulting site visits and resulting scientific data and publications.
NIST will use this information to conduct necessary government business for the processing of applicants to gain entry into the NISTNCNR Facility. Disclosure of this information is permitted under the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. Section 522a) to be shared among NIST staff for work-related purposes. Disclosure of this information is also subject to all the published routine uses as identified in the Privacy Act System of Records Notices: NIST 5: Nuclear Reactor Operator Licensees File; NIST 1: NIST Associates (this has a special section for Facility User Records for NCNR); DEPT. 25: Access Control and Identity Management System.
Furnishing this information is voluntary, however this information is required in order to obtain authorization to the NIST NCNR Facility. The failure to provide accurate information may delay or prevent you from receiving this access. Submitting voluntary information constitutes your consent to the use of the information for the stated purpose. When you submit the form, you are indicating your voluntary consent for NIST to use of the information you submit for the purpose stated. This information may also be retained indefinitely as deemed necessary for the purpose of distributing updates and information.
