Summary: RFD for new group, comp.robotics.research [moderated], with
worldwide distribution, intended for the discussion of
university, government, and industrial research in the field
of robotics.  Includes renaming comp.robotics to comp.robotics.misc.


REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION:

This is a formal request for discussion (RFD) for the creation of the
moderated newsgroup comp.robotics.research.

This request is being cross-posted to:
   news.announce.newgroups	       sci.engr
   news.groups			       sci.engr.biomed
   comp.robotics		       sci.engr.civil
   comp.ai			       sci.engr.control
                		       sci.engr.manufacturing
   sci.electronics		       sci.engr.mech

Followups are directed to news.groups.


This formal request for discussion takes place following an informal
discussion period that took place last fall in the comp.robotics group
that included suggestions from several parties, an open debate of the
issues, and an informal straw poll showing support for the creation of
the proposed group.

This request also follows a September 1994 request for an unmoderated
comp.robotics.research that was sent to, but returned by the moderator
of news.announce.newgroups because Usenet policy dictates *.research
groups be moderated. This request has been updated a second time at
the request of the news.announce.newgroups moderator to include the
conversion of comp.robotics to a hierarchy from a group renaming
the current comp.robotics to comp.robotics.misc.

Guidance on this proposal has also came from [email protected]


PROPOSAL:

The two parts of this proposal are INDEPENDENT and will be voted
on SEPARATELY.

Part 1  Create a newgroup comp.robotics.research
------------------------------------------------

Group:  The proposed group is comp.robotics.research [moderated].

Distribution:  World

Summary line:  Discussion of ongoing research in robotics

Charter:  comp.robotics.research [moderated] is for the discussion of
ongoing and proposed university, government, and industrial research
in the field of robotics.

Appropriate material includes short presentations and discussions of
significant research results, requests for collaboration on research
projects, descriptions of ongoing research projects, Requests for
Proposals, Calls for Papers, Conference and short course
announcements, announcements of position vacancies, and announcements
of the availability of materials at Gopher, WWW, and FTP sites.

Moderation Policy:

    Articles will be:
	1) accepted, as is
	2) accepted, with revisions
	3) declined, but encouraged to be resubmitted
	4) declined

It is expected that the article acceptance rate will be higher than
the 20 percent commonly found in the typical journal.  Authors will be
notified of acceptance or rejection, but articles will not be returned,
in order to eliminate unnecessary traffic.


Moderation Procedure:  Two individuals have come forward who are
willing and able to serve as co-moderators of the proposed group.  The
use of co-moderators should insure that articles are processed in a
timely manner regardless of personal conflicts affecting one of the
moderators.  Further, both moderators are willing to serve as sole
moderator until a new co-moderator is found if the other moderator
becomes permanently unable to fulfill the role of co-moderator.  When
both moderators are available (that is, usually), moderation will
alternate on a weekly basis.  The transfer of moderation duties will
be transparent to readers and posters in all cases.


Moderators:

Martin Boyer <[email protected]>.

    Martin Boyer is working at the Robotics Division of the
    Hydro-Quebec Research Institute (near Montreal, Canada).  He is
    currently managing the long-term research within the Division.  As
    such, he is a member of several working committees, within and
    outside of Hydro-Quebec.  He is also responsible for
    Hydro-Quebec's share of the Telerobotic Development Systems (TDS)
    project.  This five year project unites four industrial and
    academic partners in the development of three robotic testbeds;
    one for the manipulation of large objects, one for
    micro-fabrication, and the last one for research in direct-drive
    robots.

    Mr. Boyer's main interests are the workspace optimization of
    telemanipulators, and human factors in force-feedback systems.  He
    holds a degree in Electrical Engineering (McGill, 1983) and a
    Master's Degree, also in Electrical Engineering (McGill, 1988).
    He has been with the Hydro-Quebec Research Institute since 1985.


Iain Shigeoka <[email protected]>

    Iain Shigeoka is a first year masters student at the University of
    Kansas.  He has completed a BS in Mechanical Engineering at the
    University of California, Berkeley, and a BA in Psychology at the
    University of California, Santa Cruz.

    Mr. Shigeoka is currently working in the Kansas Augmented
    Telerobotics laboratory which is equipped with a pair of Kraft
    Telerobotic arms.  Although he has not committed to a research
    project yet, there are strong indications that he will be doing
    research in remote operations, semi-autonomous telerobotic
    controls, or telerobotic vision systems in the near future.


As co-moderators of comp.robotics.research, both Mr. Boyer and Mr.
Shigeoka would be acting as individuals, not as representatives or
agents for their respective Internet sites or other organizations in
which they may participate.

Part 2  Rename comp.robotics
----------------------------

Group: rename comp.robotics to comp.robotics.misc

The summary line, distribution and charter of the new group
comp.robotics.misc would be unchanged from those currently
in existence for comp.robotics.  This change is solely for
the purpose of maintaining the structure of the name space.

Proposed by:  Wesley Scott <[email protected]>
              Dean Hougen  <[email protected]>
	      Martin Boyer  <[email protected]>
	      Iain Shigeoka <[email protected]>

All aspects of the proposal are still open for debate and discussion.
All useful suggestions are welcomed.


PROCEDURE:

This RFD is being issued in concordance with the guidelines set in
the "How to create a new Usenet newsgroup" FAQ regularly posted to
news.announce.newgroups ("Guidelines for USENET Group Creation, David
C Lawrence <[email protected]>, last modified 18 Jan 1995).  Please
refer to this article if you have any questions about the newsgroup
creation.

The public discussion period will last a maximum of 30 days after this
RFD has been posted.

If, after the discussion period, it has been determined that this new
group is really desired, and the name, charter, and moderator(s) are
agreed upon, a Call for Votes will be posted to news.announce.newgroups
and to the other groups to which this RFD was cross-posted.  Votes
will then be collected by a neutral third-party vote-taker from the
Usenet Volunteer Votetakers (UVV).

The two parts of the proposal 1) create comp.robotics.research and
2) rename comp.robotics to comp.robotics.misc will be voted
on SEPARATELY.  Each part passing or failing INDEPENDENTLY on its
own merits, although both parts of the proposal will be contained
in the same Call for Votes (CFV).

This message will be reposted in approximately two weeks.

RATIONALE

The current group comp.robotics caters to those people who are
interested in robotics as a hobby or who are building small
robots as a learning experience.  The needs of these people
(introductory electronics and small parts sources) are
different from the needs of the researcher who is pursuing
a project with a larger budget.  A separate group specifically
targeted at the researcher is needed to complement the current
group.  comp.robotics.research is the appropriate group to
complement the current comp.robotics.

Renaming comp.robotics to comp.robotics.misc would put the
group in compliance with the current policy for naming
groups promulgated by group-advice.

You must send MAIL to [email protected]  (Posting in a newsgroup does not
constitute a vote.)  Just replying to this article should work unless you
are reading it on a mailing list, but please check the TO address.

Please remove text before the marker line below.  Voting mail is archived
by the votetakers, and hundreds of copies of the entire CFV wastes space.

Type your vote of YES or NO for each group on the line for that group.
If you do not wish to vote for a group, simply leave that line alone.
You need not worry about quoting characters which your mailer inserts.
Please type YES or NO, not Y, N, or X.  The votes are tabulated by a
program, and a valid vote is defined as the word YES or NO on the same
line as the name of the group.
