I've gotten enough of a positive response to my original Informal RFD that I
thought it was time for an Official RFD for sci.systems.

NAME:   sci.systems

CHARTER: (proposed)

  sci.systems provides a forum for the discussion of the theory and
  application of systems science. In the broadest sense, systems science is
  the study of the nature of systems. Such systems can be physical, chemical,
  biological, sociological, economic, etc. Systems science and system theory
  can be applied to systems of all types.

  Discussion might include, but is not limited to:

   - An overall discussion of the various aspects of the study of systems.
   - Discussion of the particular methods for analyzing systems.
   - Application of different methods to particular systems.

STATUS: unmoderated

Comments:

While many existing newsgroups address particular aspects of systems
science (such as sci.math, comp.theory.dynamic-sys, or comp.simulation) or
discuss the application of systems techniques to particular fields (sci.econ,
sci.bio, or sci.engr, for example), no existing newsgroup provides an
appropriate place for people from different fields to discuss different
approaches to the analysis and design of systems of all types. Sci.systems
serves this purpose.

Most respondants to the initial RFD agree that the group be called
sci.systems. If at some point the readership of sci.systems decides
volume or excessive noise in sci.systems warrant the formation of moderated
or unmoderated sub-groups (sci.systems.gen-theory or sci.system.engr, or
sci.systems.modelling, for example), appropriate RFD/CFV's might be issued.

Given the initial positive response to the unofficial frist draft of the
RFD for sci.systems, I would hope an initial Call for Votes could be
issued in two to three weeks. If anyone familiar with the voting process
would like to volunteer to handle the CFV, please let me know. Otherwise
I'll issue the CFV and take votes here.

NAME:    sci.systems

STATUS:  Unmoderated

CHARTER: 

  Sci.systems provides a forum for the discussion of the theory and
  application of systems science. In the broadest sense, systems science is
  the study of the nature of systems. Such systems can be physical, chemical,
  biological, sociological, economic, etc. Systems science and system theory
  can be applied to systems of all types. Systems science as defined here
  includes mathematical systems analysis, systems engineering, general
  systems theory, etc. This definition is intentionally vague in order to
  encourage discussion on all aspects of the study of sytems.

  Discussion might include, but is not limited to:

   - An overall discussion of the various aspects of the study of systems.
   - Discussion of the particular methods for analyzing systems.
   - Application of different methods to particular systems.


RATIONALE:

  While many existing newsgroups address particular aspects of systems
  science (such as sci.math, comp.theory.dynamic-sys, or comp.simulation) or
  discuss the application of systems techniques to particular fields (sci.econ,
  sci.bio, or sci.engr, for example), no existing newsgroup provides an

VOTING:

  Send all votes to:   [email protected]

  Your message should include (preferably in the header) either:

     "YES" and "sci.systems" if you favor creation of the newsgroup

        or

     "NO" and "sci.systems" if you are against the creation of the newsgroup

  Voting will end at 2359 GMT on April 12, 1992.

RESULTS: 

  During the voting period, which ended April 12, 168 votes IN FAVOR of
  the creation of sci.systems were received. 19 votes AGAINST were received.
  By the guidelines for newsgroup creation which require a 2/3 majority in
  favor of creation and a 100 votes margin, the proposal passes.
