The Wavelet Digest
The Wavelet Digest is a free and non-commercial electronic newsletter available to researchers with a standing interest in wavelets and their applications. It is a moderated forum whose primary role is to link together the wavelet community, which is extremely diverse. Thanks to its large number of subscribers worldwide, the digest has become the medium of choice for announcing the availability of recent wavelet-related research articles (preprints), new conferences, courses, software, books, jobs, etc. It also welcomes questions and publishes the answers of the wavelet experts.

History of the Wavelet Digest
The Wavelet Digest was founded by Wim Sweldens. Its first issue was released on July 24, 1992. Since then, the impact of the digest on the community kept increasing and the number of subscribers grew to almost 20000 by the end of 2001. During all those years, Wim has edited and assembled the digest. Now, the Wavelet Digest takes off again, restyled and hosted by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL).

Technical side of the Wavelet Digest
The Wavelet Digest site was implemented by Dimitri Van De Ville. Its implementation is based on the phpBB software, a free Bulletin Board implementation which is using php scripting technology. The site runs on a dual processor Mac OS X server with mySql as back-end database server and MajorDomo as mailing list software. Brigitte Forster helped to migrate the back issues and pending submissions towards the new system. Daniel Sage assisted to successfully install and run the server hardware and software. The Digest site is hosted by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) with the kind support of EPFL's School of Engineering (STI) and the Biomedical Imaging Group (BIG).
