Charter:

This will be a non-moderated newsgroup about the physical and chemical
aspects of molecular modelling, including discussions about algorythms
and the applications behind the software.  The interest of the group
will be more towards modelling outcomes, pitfalls, methodology and
techniques, rather than towards discussions on bugs or system errors.

Discussion about all kinds of molecular modelling techniques, such as
homology modelling, molecular dynamics, diffuse dynamics,
electrostatic calculations, surface analysis, will be included in the
newsgroup, excluding discussions about X-tal or NMR techniques (see
other groups).

The newsgroup will not be restricted on the program or platform used.
A FAQ will be compiled and posted monthly.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Voting is open on the MOLECULAR-MODELLING/bionet.molec-model newsgroup
and will run through 24:00 hrs Pacific Time on 21 June 1994.  Please
send your vote to either of the following addresses:

Address                               Location        Network
-------                               --------        -------

biovote at net.bio.net                   U.S.A.          Internet/BITNET

PLEASE BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE FORMAT BELOW - WE OFTEN RUN MORE THAN ONE
VOTE AT A TIME SO A SIMPLE "YES" OR "NO" MESSAGE WITHOUT THE NEWSGROUP
NAME MAY BE AMBIGUOUS.  Your vote should contain a single line:

YES on MOLMODEL

if you favor creation of the newsgroup above or

NO on MOLMODEL

if you think that the creation of this newsgroup will adversely affect
the BIOSCI system.  If you are simply not interested in participating
in this newsgroup, please don't cast a NO vote, but instead just don't
vote at all.

The newsgroup proposal must receive at least 80 YES votes to pass and
the number of YES votes must be greater than the number of NO votes by
at least 40.  Discussion of the newsgroup proposal is now closed and
we strongly discourage posting any messages in other forums about the
fact that a CALL FOR VOTES has been issued.

				Dave Kristofferson
				BIOSCI/bionet Manager
