Dear Colleagues,

as a step towards using new communication facilities and possibilities offered by the Web 2.0 technology, a test version of the social network of all Mössbauer spectroscopists, viz. the Facebook group

International Mössbauer Community - MIX@FB

has been created. In the construction and test phase, IMC will be a secret group, i.e., only members see the group, who is in it, and what members post.

If you are already on Facebook, please visit the group and ask for membership at

http://www.facebook.com/groups/mossbauer/

Should you not yet be on Facebook, please consider joining it (by properly setting your parameters, you will be able to protect your privacy).

Besides members, I am looking for volunteers who are willing to test and develop the group page, extend it with posts, events, documents, pictures, videos, etc. and, even more importantly, come up with ideas. Those volunteering please contact me at nagy AT rmki.kfki.hu.

You will find the full description of the group after this mail.

With best regards,

Denes L. Nagy

DESCRIPTION

The International Mössbauer Community (IMC) is a group created by the International Board on the Applications of the Mössbauer Effect (IBAME). IMC aims at directly connecting all Mössbauer spectroscopists of the world. "Mössbauer spectroscopy includes laboratory Mössbauer spectroscopy, elastic and inelastic nuclear resonance scattering of synchrotron radiation (NRS and NIS), synchrotron radiation perturbed angular correlation (SRPAC) as well as other related techniques and theories. The group will host and disseminate information on highlights, conferences, schools, workshops, programs, instrumentation of the field. In this sense, IMC is the successor of MIX, the Mössbauer Information Exchange, a project dating back to 1992. However, in contrast to the traditional approach of MIX, IMC is a social network based on Web 2.0 principles; the members of IMC will shape the group and its content. Therefore, IMC is nothing but "MIX on Facebook" or, abbreviated, MIX@FB.

Members of IMC may create further thematic and action groups under the auspices of IMC provided that the purpose and the scope of such groups accords with those of IMC and that the IMC page and the new group page are mutually displayed on each other. Matters of dispute will be decided by IBAME.

All Mössbauer spectroscopists are invited to join IMC. However, to keep a high professional level of the Community, only administrators can approve requests to join the group. You may certainly apply for the IMC membership simply asking for joining the group. In this case your application will be refereed by IBAME who, in case of doubt, may ask for additional evidence of your professional quality (list of publications, etc.). However, you may preferably approach a member of IBAME to support your application. Should your application be submitted by an IBAME member (i.e., he or she will ask for adding you to the group) this request will be approved without any further inquiry.

In the construction and test phase, IMC will be a secret group, i.e., only members see the group, who is in it, and what members post. After a couple of weeks, the group will become closed, which means that anyone will be able to see the group, who's in it, however only members will see posts. At a later stage, an additional public page of IMC containing public information of the Community will be set up, nevertheless the Facebook group will retain closed.

At the moment, IMC is not more than a Facebook group, i.e. no legal entity like a society is behind. Consequently, IMC membership is free. After some time, the foundation of a society with well-defined services and membership fee may be considered, an issue that, among many others, may be discussed in the IMC group.
