The editor of our journal Cytometry, Brian H. Mayall M.D. has written
a short description of the proposed function of the new newsgroup:

CYTOMETRY is being established as an international electronic
information exchange newsgroup.

Users are all with interests in analytical cytology and in measuring
and characterizing individual cells and cellular components. This
newsgroup will initially be established for the members of the
International Society for Analytical Cytology, but is open to all. It
complements the society's journal, Cytometry. Topics embrace all
aspects of image cytometry and flow cytometry, including
instrumentation, specimen preparation, probe development, data
analysis, standards and quality control, clinical applications,
operator certification, etc.

The primary function of the group is rapid dissemination
and exchange of information, which includes on-line discussion
of relevant topics, specific queries and answers, critiques of
products and techniques, and announcements of meetings, job
opportunities, and new products.

Brian H. Mayall will act as the discussion leader for the newsgroup
while Damir Sudar will be the contact person.

We suggest that this will not be a moderated newsgroup as we want
free discussions. We will publicize the newsgroup to the members
of ISAC through the newsletter and an editorial in the journal.
