Albers) Subject: RFD: sci.math.research.fields-institute moderated Message-ID: <[email protected]> Followup-To: news.groups Sender: [email protected] (David C Lawrence) Organization: University of Waterloo Date: Wed, 15 Jul 1992 22:13:32 GMT Approved: [email protected] Lines: 56 To whom it may concern: The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences is interested in establishing a newsgroup in the sci.math pathway. A tentative name for this group would be sci.math.research.fields- institute. The newsgroup sci.math.research is inappropriate for our purposes because its focus is on actual research problems and results, not events. The proposed moderator is Liz Reidt, Executive Assistant at The Fields Institute, and the address for the moderator would be [email protected] Any questions or direct comments not posted to the discussion group should be addressed here. The moderation policy is still under revision. Basically, postings would be about Institute conference announcements and results, seminars, positions available, calls for papers, and other news that would be of interest to a worldwide readership of mathematicians. Also there would be a summary of events posted on a bi-weekly basis. Discussions resulting from conferences would be routed to sci.math.research. Here is some background information about The Fields Institute: On November 8, 1991 funding was announced for a major new research institute named in honour of the Canadian mathematician John Charles Fields (1863-1932) who conceived the award now known as the Fields Medal. The Fields Institute is a joint effort of McMaster University, the University of Toronto and the University of Waterloo. Other universities across Canada have been invited to affiliate with it. The Institute is funded by new money from the Ontario Ministry of Colleges and Universities and the Committee for Collaborative Research Initiatives of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. It is designed to increase activity in leading edge mathematical sciences research in Canada, to provide additional opportunities for graduate training and to improve interaction with science and industry. There will be a discussion on the creation of this group in the group news.groups. This announcement is being posted to other groups as well as e-mailed to affected individuals. Once a general consensus is reached and there are no major objections, a follow- up message will be sent and posted regarding the details of the vote. We encourage all interested parties to tune into the discussion and, when asked to, vote. Sincerely, -- Sheri Albers, Scientific Support Staff The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences 185 Columbia St. W.
