The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 included numerous provisions related to sexual assault in the military (discussed in depth in this post). Section 576 stated:

The Secretary of Defense shall establish a panel to conduct an independent review and assessment of the systems used to investigate, prosecute, and adjudicate crimes involving adult sexual assault and related offenses under section 920 of title 10, United States Code (article 120 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice), for the purpose of developing recommendations regarding how to improve the effectiveness of such systems.

The result is the Response Systems to Adult Sexual Assault Crimes Panel (link to official website). Its next meeting will occur on December 11-12, 2013, at the University of Texas-Austin, San Jacinto Residence Hall, Multi-Purpose Room 0207, 309 E 21st Street, Austin, TX 78705. The meeting is open to the public.

Further details including the meeting’s agenda are available in this public notice in the Federal Register.
