Electronic Communication Overview
Because of the widespread nature of the
Communications is a fundamental part of the
Artemis Project. The Artemis
Electronic Communications infrastructure is based on a set of topic-oriented
each mailing list covering a different technical or functional
area of the Artemis Project. The use of multiple mailing lists keeps the
conversations focused on specific topics and allows everyone to participate in
only those discussions that they are interested in. To support those members
who do not have access to the mailing lists, or aren't able to keep up with the
volume of mailing lists, there are automated gateways set up between the
mailing lists and numerous other communications environments, including
and web pages. The overall
electronic communications architecture is represented in the drawing below.
To see more information about a particular part of the architecture, click on
the appropriate part of the drawing or select one of the links below the
Much of the above architecture has not been implemented yet. An overview of
the electronic communication improvements was discussed in an article called
"Artemis Electronic Communication Improvements"
that was published in the Pleiades section of the January 1996 Moon Miner's
Review newsletter. The implementation of these communications improvements,
and maintaining the overall electronic communications environment, is the
responsibility of the Electronic Communications
Technical Committee (ECTC). The specific projects that are going on to
implement these communications improvements are listed in the
ECTC Task List. The ECTC is always looking
for help in implementing many of these improvements. If you are willing to
help, fill out the volunteer form in the
ECTC Task List page.
If you are a member of an Artemis Technical Committee or discussion group and
need electronic communications services set up for your committee or group,
follow the instructions in the
Electronic Communication Procedure
