We have received a proposal below for a new newsgroup,

BIOTELEMETRY/bionet.biotelemetry (moderated)

Discussion on the following proposal will now be open through 12 Mar.
on BIOFORUM/bionet.general (*not* on BIONEWS/bionet.announce).  For
those who are not on the BIOFORUM/bionet.general newsgroup currently,
either read bionet.general on USENET or contact one of the following
biosci addresses to sign up by e-mail:

Subscription Address                 Location
--------------------                 --------
biosci at daresbury.ac.uk               Europe, Africa, and Central Asia
biosci at net.bio.net                   Americas and the Pacific Rim

One warning, however: BIOFORUM/bionet.general is a "chatty" newsgroup
and many other items will be discussed there besides this newsgroup
proposal.  USENET news access is definitely better than e-mail if you
want to monitor only this discussion.

Discussion Guidelines
---------------------
Please do not post one-line messages saying things like "I am in favor
of such a newsgroup".  We will collect votes later.  The discussion
period is an opportunity for anyone to bring up reservations about the
proposed charter below and to propose modifications prior to the vote.
If the charter is perfect as is, then there is no need for anyone to
say anything!!!

The newsgroup discussion leader may submit a revised proposal in light
of the discussion, and the new charter would be included in the call
for votes which will go out on 13 March (Newsgroup Discussion leaders
- please note this deadline - if no revisions are received before the
deadline, the original charter will be voted on.).

Please be aware that only one vote is counted per e-mail address, so
it is necessary to have your own account in order to vote.  Multiple
votes from the same address are not accepted.  If you are interested
in the following newsgroup, but do not have an e-mail address of your
own, please obtain one from your computer center before the call for
votes is issued.

Proposal for BIOTELEMETRY/bionet.biotelemetry (moderated)

USENET newsgroup name:  bionet.biotelemetry

Status: 		Moderated

One line description:	Radiotelemetry for monitoring physiological
			parameters.

Moderation address:     bionet-telemetry at net.bio.net
                        (biotelem-moderator at net.bio.net
                         is an alias for
                         bionet-telemetry at net.bio.net)

Moderator: 		Dr. S. Mentzel

Mailing list name: 	BIOTELEMETRY

E-mail addresses: 	biotelem at net.bio.net
			biotelem at daresbury.ac.uk

Newsgroup charter:

bionet.biotelemetry is a forum for scientific discussions and a source
of information for the community of scientists interested in any
aspect of the use of telemetry in monitoring physiological parameters
in animals. The name BIOTELEMETRY was chosen to reflect the common
interest in the use of telemetry to analyze physiological parameters
in different animal model systems, animals and organs. This newsgroup
is an initiative of the Working Party Telemetry The Netherlands (WTN).

Functions of the newsgroup: the newsgroup will facilitate rapid
communication among research scientists and educators analyzing a wide
range of physiological parameters in many biological fields, includig
but not limited to physiology, ecology, pharmacology, pathology,
developmental biology, chronobiology, wild life management etc.

The newsgroup will provide a forum for discussions of problems,
exchange of expertise, old and new ideas, journal publications, and
recent developments in biotelemetry. The newsgroup will provide
sources of practical advice, methodologies, expertise centres in
different countries, frequently asked questions concerning the use of
telemetry, techniques for implantation of teletric transmitters, new
developments, and the availability of telemetry for third parties at
expertise centres.

Finally, the newsgroup will serve as a bulletin board for
announcements of meetings and conferences on biotelemetry.

Subscribers are welcome from universities or any academic
institutions, government agencies, medical institutions, and
industrial or commercial organizations. Contributions within the
functions outlined above are encouraged.

Moderation policy: mass-posted commercial messages, chain letters, and
similar postings not germane to telemetry or related issues will be
deleted without coment. Inappropriate messages posted in good faith
will be returned to the sender. Messages not strictly within the
charter but likely to be of interest to many subscribers (e.g.
messages dealing with the analysis of physiological parameters in
general) will be accepted.
