There are three mechanisms for receiving the Vision List:
1) Via the web at http://www.vislist.com
2) Via the newsgroup COMP.AI.VISION . If you don't know how to determine
if this newsgroup is available to you, please ask your local
2) If you do not have access to either of the above, please send
email to email@example.com with "add email subscriber" in
the subject line, and I will add your email address to the
The INTERNET host site for the Vision List is VISLIST.COM .
To submit an article: send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
To contact the moderator: send email to email@example.com
To access the Vision List Archives: anonymous ftp to ftp.vislist.com
or web access to http://www.vislist.com
As the moderator, I am interested in stimulating exchanges on research
and other topics of significance to the vision community. Here is
some information which describes the List and related services.
* PLEASE check to see if you have access to the Vision List via the
* COMP.AI.VISION newsgroup. If you do, please access the List via the
* newsgroup feed and let me know so that I can remove you from the master
* List. This greatly reduces required net bandwidth and makes things easier.
If you have problems sending messages to the list, questions about
technical details of the list distribution, or the like, send mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive a personal response.
PLEASE DO NOT send your request to be added to/deleted from the list
to email@example.com. If you do, it may be automatically
redistributed as an article and appear in thousands of mailboxes
around the world. Always send these requests to the moderator address.
SUBMISSIONS & RELEASE FORMAT
To submit an article to Vision-List, simply send it to:
Submissions to the list are currently being delivered in a single
batch mailing about once a week and more often as needed. Caution:
the list moderator does not always edit the incoming messages before
they are redistributed. During those weeks, everything operates
automatically, with the attendant advantages and pitfalls. (If you
fall into one of those pits, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I'll do my best to fix things up.)
The following details may help you in formatting and choosing
appropriate titles for your list submissions. Within a single release
of Vision-List, the format consists of an initial identifying header,
a list of topics covered in that release, and then each message
separated by dashed lines (please avoid the use of dashed lines
starting in column 1 in your submissions: they play havoc with most
autodigesters in the networld). Most of the header information is
automatically removed from each submission at release time. When the
software is working correctly, only "Date:", "From:", and "Subject:"
