The TCCLS maintains a moderated mailing list: MAIL.Acceptable posts onto this list are all information related to the Technical Committee on Computational Life Sciences (TCCLS), e.g., Symposia, Conferences, and Workshop announcements of TCCLS sponsored events, respective Calls-for-Papers (CfP).
Policies of use and membership management are outlined as follows.
Policies of Use Sending Rights
Only TCCLS members can post to the tccls-announce mailing list, however, their posts are moderated. Non-members, who wish to post their messages, have two options: (1) become a list member (see “Joining TCCLS”), or (2) send the respective message to the TCCLS chair, who may periodically process them and post them on the TCCLS mailing list. This periodicity may be around once a week or a little more in vacation periods. Acceptable posts have been summarized above.
An improper use of this mailing list tccc-announce may result in the following:
- Any member of the list can post, but if they violate these guidelines they may be denied further posting privileges at the discretion of the TCCLS chair (or a delegate of him/her).
- The TCCLS chair (or a delegate of him/her) is responsible for the supervision of the list content to insure that all content restrictions (cf. below) are satisfied. If they are not, those misuse guidelines may be applied and members may be denied further posting privileges.

- Any chain letters, political discussions, or requests for donations.
- Any item that promotes or serves as a marketing vehicle for materials in which the TC committee member has a personal, financial, or business interest. This includes books, conferences and short courses in which the IEEE Computer Society does not have any interest, however, such items for the general good, e.g., announcements of faculty openings, fellowships, student grants, may be posted, if they are in the topical interest of the TCCLS.
- Any item that advances the candidacy of an individual for an elected office in the IEEE (including IEEE Computer Society), which is conforming to existing IEEE policy.
- Any item that uses one’s position as a volunteer in the IEEE Computer Society for personal gain;
- Any item that announces or encourages participation in a venue that is clearly in conflict with any initiative of the IEEE Computer Society.This includes Call-for-Papers for competing publications or announcements for competing conferences. Since the IEEE Computer Society co-sponsors a number of publications and events, it is encouraged to seek the advice of the appropriate Computer Society personnel for further details;
Messages you send to the mailing list are either (a) distributed to the list after the moderation is done, however, without further editing by anybody, or (b) denied without any notice according to those policies stated above.
