CinC Community

Computing in Cardiology is about more than organizing a conference, it is a society of engineers, physicians, and scientists who share a common passion for exploiting the power of computing to understand, diagnose, and treat all aspects of the heart.  We are diverse, international community that meets in person once a year to share ideas and breakthroughs.  

Our community continues to interact between the CinC conferences and the goal of this new mailing list is to foster communications within that community, to find each other, to propose ideas, and to inform each other about opportunities that engage and promote our research and our science.  The present CinC mailing list will continue to serve as the official vehicle for the organization, to be used sparsely for the CinC leadership to inform the membership about events and programs specific to the organization.  By contrast, community@cinc.org will be a place for discussions and exchange initiated BY the members of the community and WITHIN the members of our community. 

The guidelines will evolve as we explore this new means of communicating but here are the current policies:

– The mailing list is freely available to all and we require members to join voluntarily and actively; each time someone subscribes to the list, we will verify the associated email address to ensure no one is added involuntarily. 

– Members can come and go freely at any time and directions to unsubscribe are distributed regularly. 

– The list is moderated by 2-3 members of the CinC Board in order to maintain the highest standards of integrity, adhesion to the mission of CinC and the community, and clarity of language; all potential messages will be reviewed and potentially edited in agreement with the sender before passing them to the full list. 

– The list serves exclusively for research communication and not to support commercial or advertising purposes.

– The list enforces common email etiquette guidelines, e.g., https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Mailing_list_netiquette

– We archive the contents of the mailing list and, based on interest, explore making the archives a searchable resource for the community

We will start as a single mailing list that serves all the following functions:

– Announcements, e.g., upcoming workshops, courses, conferences, grant submissions

– Job/fellowship positions and postings

– Discussion of topics related to the discipline

– Working groups on specific subtopics

We anticipate (and hope) that the activity levels on the list propel us to create additional, separate lists for some of these topics. We can also explore the use of discussion boards and other means of organizing communication, all through the cinc.org portals.
