REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION:

  of Creation of UNMODERATED Usenet newsgroups for discussions and
  postings related to particle accelerators and the physics of beams.
  The following newsgroups are proposed:
   sci.physics.accel.codes      computer codes in accelerator physics
   sci.physics.accel.expt    experimental methods, instrumentation, measurement
   sci.physics.accel.theory     accelerator theory
   sci.physics.accel.structures particle sources, accelerator structures,...
   sci.physics.accel.rf-sources power sources
   sci.physics.accel.misc       announcements, news from accelerator labs,...
   sci.physics.accel.abstracts  abstracts of preprints, papers and tech notes

PURPOSE:

  The purpose of the newsgroup "sci.physics.accel.codes" will be for 
  discussing issues related to computer codes used in the design and 
  analysis of particle accelerators, beam transport systems, and components 
  of these systems. Topics of discussion could include, but would not be
  limited to, problems encountered using specific codes, advantages and 
  disadvantages of various codes, and methods for using specific codes to 
  solve certain problems.
 
  The purpose of the newsgroup "sci.physics.accel.expt" will be for
  discussing issues related to experimental accelerator physics. Topics could 
  include, but would not be limited to, experimental methods, instrumentation, 
  diagnostics and measurement.

  The purpose of the newsgroup "sci.physics.accel.theory" will be for 
  discussing topics in accelerator theory. 

  The purpose of the newsgroup "sci.physics.accel.structures" will be for 
  discussing topics such as particle sources, injectors, Radio Frequency 
  Quadrupoles, conventional and unconventional accelerator structures, etc.

  The purpose of the newsgroup "sci.physics.accel.rf-sources" will be for 
  discussing issues related to rf power sources for particle accelerators.

  The purpose of the newsgroup "sci.physics.accel.misc" will be for
  postings that do not fall into the categories of the other groups.
  This could include things such as news from accelerator laboratories
  and announcements concerning conferences and schools of interest to 
  accelerator and beam physicists.

  The purpose of the newsgroup "sci.physics.accel.abstracts" will be for
  the posting of abstracts related to accelerator physics and beam physics 
  that are produced at accelerator laboratories, universities and 
  institutions around the world. This group would be for posting just 
  abstracts, including the author's name, institution and address. 
  (This way, readers would know how to get further information, including 
  the complete papers.) The actual posting of papers could perhaps 
  be accomplished at a later date using an anonymous ftp server.
  NOTE WELL: I have been told that this topic duplicates SPIRES,
  a database that many people (including me) are unfamiliar with.
  If that is the case, then it should be brought up during the discussion
  period, and the proposal to create this group will be removed if there
  is a consensus to remove it.

RATIONALE:

  Particle accelerators, beam transport systems and magnetic optics
  systems are designed, built and utilized at numerous institutions around
  the world. Researchers starting work on a problem that is new to them could
  poll the newsgroups for past efforts related to that problem.
  By fostering scientific interchange and discussion between accelerator
  scientists, these newsgroups would help researchers get their
  work done more quickly, it could prevent them from making common
  mistakes, and it could help them find the best solutions to problems. 

PROPOSER: Robert Ryne

          [email protected]

DISCUSSION: Please post all discussions to "news.groups"

IMPORTANT DATES
  The discussion period will begin on May 3. It is anticipated that 
  a call for votes will occur around June 3, 1993.

This is an official Call For Votes (CFV) for the formation of the newsgroup: 
                ****  sci.physics.accelerators  ****

Note well: Shortly after posting this CFV, an e-mail message will be sent
to a number of accelerator and beam physicists stating that the vote is in 
progress and what its purpose is. The e-mail message states that, if you are
currently unable to access Usenet, but expect to do so in the future, and if 
you would like to participate in the vote, then send a one line message to
[email protected] that says "send me the CFV"

Acknowledgment: This CFV is a modified version of the soc.culture.austria CFV.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please read the following information carefully, before sending your votes!  
The instructions on how to vote are located after the charter in this article!
Do not post your votes to Usenet!

                   Charter for sci.physics.accelerators

NAME: sci.physics.accelerators

MODERATION: unmoderated

PURPOSE:
  The purpose of the newsgroup sci.physics.accelerators is for discussing 
  issues related to particle accelerators and the physics of beams. 
  Possible topics include, but are not limited to: computer codes and
  simulation in accelerator physics; experimental methods, instrumentation,
  diagnostics and measurement; accelerator theory; particle sources;
  accelerator structures; advanced accelerator concepts; rf power sources;
  free electron lasers; announcements and news from accelerator laboratories.

RATIONALE:
  Particle accelerators, beam transport systems and magnetic optics systems 
  are designed, built and utilized at numerous institutions around the world. 
  Researchers starting work on a problem that is new to them can poll the 
  newsgroup for past efforts related to that problem.  By fostering scientific 
  interchange and discussion between accelerator scientists, the newsgroup 
  would help researchers get their work done more quickly, it could prevent 
  them from making common mistakes, and it could help them find the best 
  solutions to problems. 

CHANGE OF MODERATION:
  If, in the future, there is a desire to change the status of the newsgroup
  from unmoderated to moderated, this can be accomplished by following the
  Usenet rules for creation of a new newsgroup (RFD, CFV, vote)

-----------------------------End of Charter-------------------------------
FOLLOWUP DISCUSSION:
  The period for discussion has ended.  You may continue the discussion
  while the votes are being taken, but this will not have any effect on 
  the proposal of sci.physics.accelerators.  Any followup discussion will 
  be carried out on news.groups.

VOTING PERIOD:

RESULT: sci.physics.accelerators passes 318:8
---------------------------------------------
The voting period for sci.physics.accelerators has ended. The final vote
count is 318:YES and 8:NO. Therefore, the group has passed. As I understand
it, there will be a 5 day waiting period to look over the votes, and
so long as there are no objections the group will be created thereafter.

Note:  Due to a disk crash, votes received during June 26 - June 30 were
lost. (There were about a dozen YES votes and zero NO votes). If you voted 
during that period and cannot find your name below, that is the reason.

Sincerely,
Salman Habib
