                             REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION
                             FORMATION OF NEW GROUP
                              SCI.ENERGY.HYDROGEN

This request for discussion (RFD) will appear 3 times over a thirty day
period commencing July 8, 1993 and ending August 7, 1993.  The discussion
is to take place on news.group.  This is the first of three announcements.

A listserver list has been created at the University of Rhode Island
entitled: HYDROGEN on [email protected]  For the convenience of
USENET users and to make this conference available to as many users
as possible, we wish to create SCI.ENERGY.HYDROGEN.  A bi-directional
gateway will exchange information between the mail list and the newsgroup.

The purpose of this newgroup is to promote a better understanding of the
concepts, terminology, materials, processes and issues relating to 
hydrogen as an alternative fuel.  Users will be welcome from universities,
government and industry and are encouraged to post all pertinent news,
events, information, research, references, seminar and conference announce-
ments, product and service announcements, related procurements, and 
general discussion of hydrogen related topics.

All are welcome to join in the discussion concerning the formation of
sci.energy.hydrogen on news.group.  Your input will help define the
scope and charter for this conference. Following the month long discussion
a vote will be held as described in the guidelines for usenet group
creation.  During this time you are welcome to subscribe to the
hydrogen listserver list by sending the simple email message:
SUB HYDROGEN to [email protected]  You will asked to confirm your
subscription and need only reply, OK.

Thank you for your kind consideration of this RFD.
