Mailing list policies

[Update Sept. 2020] Due to an increasing number of posted CFPs that are outside the technical scope of the MBMC-TC, we have switched to a moderated list. All messages will be sent for moderation before being posted. The requirements for posting (below) have not changed but we hope that this simplifies the process for legitimate users.

Only MBMC-TC mailing list members may directly post to the mailing list. If you are not on the mailing list and you wish to post a message, please either (1) subscribe to the MBMC-TC mailing list or (2) send the message to the Secretary to post the message to the mailing list on your behalf.

The following types of posting are permitted on the mailing list:

  • Calls for Papers (CFPs), meeting announcements, and faculty or research job openings,
    • CFPs require advance permission from the current officers. Please send them a copy to request permission for posting.
    • These postings must have a primary focus that aligns with the technical scope of the MBMC-TC. If in doubt, please contact the current officers.
    • Frequency of postings for the same event must be reasonable (e.g., no more than monthly).
  • Technical discussions of direct interest to the MBMC-TC members, and
  • MBMC-TC administrative business.

Announcements of an event whose primary focus is broadly-based computers, communication or networking are not permitted on the MBMC-TC mailing list.

IEEE TCCC (Technical Committee on Computer Communications) has well thought-out and tested guidelines for postings on its mailing lists. Those who wish to post to the mailing list are asked to read and follow them. For instance, TCCC prohibits postings of the following types:

  • Any item that reflects negatively on the reputation, character, professional ability, or technical competence of anyone;
  • Any item of a sexually explicit nature;
  • Any item that disparages or demeans another’s ethnicity, religion, culture, or sexual orientation;
  • Any item that misrepresents one’s position in the IEEE Communications Society or in any other professional organization;
  • Any item that promotes or serves as a marketing vehicle for personal gain;
  • Chain letters, political discussions, or requests for donations.
