Glycoscience Network Live!
We are pleased to announce the release of the Glycoscience Network
Live! service for members of The Glycoscience Network (TGN) community.
This service consists of a WWW-based scientific resource in which TGN
members may access an interactive environment on a continuous basis to
participate in online scientific events including lectures, discussions,
poster sessions, journal clubs, collaborative scientific projects,
structural and informatic resources, glossary, other scientific
projects, and a Job and Trade Centre. These activities will be
available on a year-round basis to subscribed TGN members.
As a starting point the interactive facility and material
for The Second Electronic Glycoscience Conference (EGC-2,
http://bellatrix.pcl.ox.ac.uk/egc2/) is available through the
service. EGC-2 registrants will receive one year's free membership to
TGN and its services starting from October 1 1996. For others
membership may be obtained for a subscription equivalent to the
EGC-2 registration fee via the registration facility through TGN's
page at: http://bellatrix.pcl.ox.ac.uk/TGN/
Membership fee for one year is 35 pounds (50 dollars) with a reduced
rate of 20 pounds (30 dollars) for students. These fees will aid
in the support and improvement of services and connections
to TGN members.
The Glycoscience Network Live! service is currently available
via http://bellatrix.pcl.ox.ac.uk:8000/. A US mirror service and
other server service upgrades will be released in due course.
We encourage TGN members to participate in projects and will
endeavour to support member contributions via available technical and
financial means. We offer an open invitation to members
to submit their interests and project suggestions for consideration
to egc2org at bellatrix.pcl.ox.ac.uk
TGN and the Glycoscience Network Live! service will be provided
by Greenlea Communications which is dedicated to the establishment
of high quality virtual environments and resources for the scientific
