Proposed CHARTER for new internet NEWSGROUP:

	NEWSGROUP for Plasma Science and Technology

   The Plasma Science and Technology research community seeks an 
increased dialogue among its multifarious constituencies.
Plasmas are as rich as any other state of matter in terms of distinct
processes and they encompass distinguishable scales ranging from the
atomic to the galactic. Opportunities in plasma science and technology
reflect this breadth in phenomena and scales; one recent list contains
135 subject areas and 65 applications areas including semiconductor
production, thin-film diamond deposition, toxic waste disposal, plasma
arcs for steel processing, laser self-focusing, fusion for energy
production, gas and arc lamps, cutting and welding, etc. 
   The NEWSGROUP for Plasma Science and Technology is intended
as a community forum for sharing new developments and bringing 
researchers together for potential new collaborations. During 1994, 
the focus of this NewsGroup will be a community-wide dialogue to 
formulate a Plasma Science and Technology Initiative which would 
deliver big-science value with a medium-scale investment. 
Participation in this dialogue will involve primarily researchers 
in plasma science and technology although qualified researchers 
in all related fields are welcome. Steering Committees for the 
Division of Plasma Physics of the American Physical Society (APS) 
and the Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society of IEEE (Institute of 
Electrical and Electronics Engineers) have given formal approval 
for this network dialogue.
   In its initial implementation, Dr. Tim Eastman will be the
PLASMA NEWSGROUP moderator. He is a Research Faculty member of the
Institute for Physical Science and Technology at the University of
Maryland [ph: 301-405-4829, fax: 301-314-9363, 
email: [email protected]].  The APS and IEEE Steering Committees
will renew or replace the moderator on a yearly basis.


NOTE: The NewsGroup name "sci.physics.fusion" already exists
and is appropriate for the subset of Plasma Science and Technology
which focuses on high-temperature plasmas for energy production
(i.e., fusion).  The proposed NEWSGROUP for PLASMAS is intended
to complement the "fusion" group and will primarily orient itself
to issues of Plasma Science and Technology other than fusion.
The NewsGroup name "sci.physics.plasma" would work and could
be used in parallel with "sci.physics.fusion."  However, because
Plasma Science and Technology is more inclusive (including Plasma
Chemistry and various Engineering topics within Plasma Technology),
the NewsGroup name "sci.plasma" might be appropriate with
fusion handled as a subset "sci.plasma.fusion."

Science and Technology Initiative which would deliver big-science

Dr. Barry Ripin of the Naval Research Laboratory will be an alternate
moderator.  The APS and IEEE Executive Committees will renew or
replace the moderator on a yearly basis.

The proposed NEWSGROUP for PLASMA is intended to complement the 
"fusion" group and will primarily orient itself to issues of 
Plasma Science and Technology other than fusion.


Why the NewsGroup for Plasma Science & Technology is needed and should pass:

Representatives and members of the Plasma Science and Technology research 
community have long recognized a need to communicate information and issues
that affect the broader community in addition to the several email groups
that currently exist at the local level or sub-field level (e.g., the Plasma
Etch User's Group in the Bay area).  Formal support for setting up this
NewsGroup has now been given (as of Nov. 1993) by the key Executive 
Committees representing this broad multi-disciplinary field.  In order to
focus the discussion during the NewsGroup's first year, we will encourage
a community-wide dialogue to formulate a major Plasma Science and Technology
Initiative.  The NewsGroup would then complement a Workshop on this topic
at the International Conference in Plasma Science in June, 1994.  Even after
this initiative is formulated and is no longer a focus of discussion, the
NewsGroup will provide a valuable service to the community by encouraging
contacts and research coordination that might otherwise never develop.
Use of the NewsGroup will be encouraged through scientific meetings and
through timely announcements of job opportunities, research opportunities, 
and funding options.
