                By the authority vested in me as President by the

                Generation Internet'' (``Committee''). The Committee 
                shall consist of not more than 25 nonfederal members 
                appointed by the President, including representatives 
                of the research, education, and library communities,

                    (4) balance among components of the HPCC Program;
                    (5) whether the research and development undertaken

                United States leadership in advanced computing and 
                communications technologies and their applications; and
                    (6) other issues as specified by the Director.

                technical assistance to the Committee as the co-chairs 
                of the Committee may request.

                carrying out its functions.
                    (b) The co-chairs may, from time to time, invite 
                experts to submit information to the Committee and may
