Moderator Vacancy Announcement (MVA)

This is a formal Moderator Vacancy Announcement (MVA), begun because the
previous moderator of the moderated newsgroup sci.physics.plasma has
recently resigned. The goal of this process is to find a new moderator
for the group.


This is a preliminary procedure, instigated by the Big-8 Management Board
and the Dead Groups Task Force. Discussion of this procedure is strongly

The Big-8 Management Board (B8MB) would like to find a person or a group
willing to moderate sci.physics.plasma. Candidates should write the
B8MB at <board@big-8.org> to present their scientific and newsgroup

If no such moderator can be found, the group will probably be
robo-moderated for a time (i.e., posts will not be checked for scientific
content or adherence to the charter). The robomoderator will apply simple
spam filters and prevent cross-posts from appearing in the group.

Those who wish to comment on this request to establish a new moderation
team for this newsgroup should subscribe to news:news.groups and
participate in the relevant threads in that newsgroup.

To this end, the followup header of this RFD has been set to news.groups.

All discussion of proposed nominees should be posted to news.groups.

If desired by the readership of closely affected groups, the discussion
may be crossposted to those groups, but care must be taken to ensure that
all discussion appears in news.groups as well.

For more information on the B8MB, please see


NEWSGROUPS LINE: sci.physics.plasma

sci.physics.plasma Plasma Science & Technology community exchange. (Moderated)

CHARTER: sci.physics.plasma

Plasmas are as rich as any other state of matter in terms of
distinct processes and they encompass distinguishable scales
ranging from the atomic to the galactic. Opportunities in plasma
science and technology reflect this breadth in phenomena and
scales; one recent list contains close to 200 subject areas and
more than 90 applications areas including thin-film diamond
deposition, toxic waste disposal, plasma arcs for steel
processing, laser self-focusing, fusion for energy production, gas
and arc lamps, cutting and welding, and semiconductor production.

The Plasma Science and Technology research community seeks an
increased dialogue among its multifarious constituencies. The
NEWSGROUP for Plasma Science and Technology is intended as a
community forum for sharing new developments and bringing
researchers together for potential new collaborations. The
newsgroup also provides a forum for public outreach and education.
Postings from students and the general public are welcome as we
all help one another in learning more about the "fourth state of
matter" and its enormous range of applications.

BACKGROUND: sci.physics.plasma

sci.physics.plasma was initiated by Tim Eastman in July 1994. The current
moderator (since July 1996) is:

John W. McKelliget
Dept. of Mechanical Engineering
University of Massachusetts
