What is the Wavelet Digest
The Wavelet Digest is a digest, i.e., a regularly distributed compilation of submissions by its subscribers. The Wavelet Digest comes in three editions:
  • Classic version: the full digest in simple ASCII text mail
  • HTML version: the full digest in nicely formatted HTML including navigation links and images
  • Executive version: a concise edition in HTML mail containing summaries and links to the site for full articles

How to add yourself to the Wavelet Digest mailing list
You want to receive regular issues of the Wavelet Digest? Most easily, you can subscribe online using the following page.
You can also send a message to majordomo@wavelet.org that includes the relevant command in the body text:
  • for the Classic version: subscribe wd
  • for the HTML version: subscribe wd-html
  • for the Executive version: subscribe wd-exec
The system will add your e-mail address and send you an acknowledgement. Of course, you can subscribe to more than one edition at once.

How to publish in the next Wavelet Digest issue
The submission process of the new Wavelet Digest is completely online. Please use the link 'New submission' to enter your submission. About once a month, the submissions are compiled into a Wavelet Digest by the editor. If you are unfamiliar with publishing in the Wavelet Digest you can read the editorial guidelines in the About section of this site. If you have any particular questions concerning your submission you may contact the editor.

How to remove yourself from the Wavelet Digest mailing list
If you want to remove yourself from the Wavelet Digest mailing list, send a message to majordomo@wavelet.org that includes the relevant command in the body text:
  • for the Classic version: unsubscribe wd
  • for the HTML version: unsubscribe wd-html
  • for the Executive version: unsubscribe wd-exec
The system will acknowledge that you have been removed.

Trouble shooting
All of the adding/removing is handled automatically. In case you experience difficulties, you can contact the webmaster at webmaster@wavelet.org. Please only use this when the automated system fails.

Editorial policy for the digest
  • We try to keep each issue to a reasonable size. Please limit your contributions to 1-1.5 pages. You can also provide a summary for your submission and suggest to the editor (by using the checkbox) only to publish the summary. After approval, the contribution will be broadcasted with a link to the fully submitted material at this site. Providing a summary is recommended since this is the only information that will be included in the Executive edition. For the other editions, the Editor-in-Chief may decide to broadcast the summary only.
  • For meeting announcements, most of our readers are not immediately interested in the times of the coffee breaks or at what time the shuttle for the hotel leaves. Please do not include a "fill in the blanks" registration form.
  • Announcements of relevant commercial products, like books or software, are welcome as long as the emphasis is on the informative part and not the commercial part. Messages which are too commercial will not be included.
  • Normal submissions should be using ASCII characters. Some TeX notation to explain mathematical symbols is certainly OK, and will even be shown graphically on the site, but please do not send entire (La)TeX versions of your submission.
  • HTML submissions can be included in two ways. There is only a limited set of tags which is allowed:
    b,i,u,q,sup,sub,small,tt,strike,li,pre,a,hr,h1,h2,h3,table,tr,td,p,ul,ol,font
    If you select "Simple HTML", the tags are interpreted but the layout from the ASCII text is retained (e.g., spacings, newlines,...). On the other hand, "Advanced HTML" submissions are interpreted completely as HTML, so newlines are not translated to <BR />. If you want to submit an existing HTML page, you need to submit the BODY part of this page (without the BODY-tags) and make all links absolute. For an example, take a look at the submission for the Wavelets X conference. Please use the HTML features of the Wavelet Digest with care and use the preview to check the results before submitting.
  • Please use full-qualified Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) when referring to information on the Web. Please do not say:
    ftp to foo.bar.org
    login with userid `anonymous' and use your Email address as password type
    cd /pub/interesting/papers/bin
    get paper.ps.gz
    but instead use
    ftp://foo.bar.org/pub/interesting/papers/paper.ps.gz
    Also put the URL on a separate line with no parenthesis, commas, or periods before or after the URL.

    The reason for this is twofold: some mail readers (like emacs with browse-url) allow the user to immediately surf to this location and secondly this facilitates our automatic ASCII to HTML conversion.
  • Announcements of meetings, courses, workshops, will only be published once in the Wavelet Digest. Decide what is the best time to announce your event and then send it to the Wavelet Digest. Your event will be featured in the Wavelet Digest Calendar from the date of submission till the date of the event.
  • We welcome questions, but do request that if you post a question in the Wavelet Digest you will summarize the answers and resubmit them to the Digest. On our Web pages, the questions will be linked to the answers so surfers can easily find the relevant information.
