2.  A Usenet-style bulletin board.
A discussion area has been set up on the SCS bulletin board for conference
material:  scs.conference.  It may be accessed through the Web site
(, where further information on how to use it
may be found.
What can be done with such a bulletin board?
* The posting of conference papers (before or after the conference itself).
* Preliminary discussions among members of a panel about their topic.
* The distribution of images (e.g., frame enlargements) related to
conference presentations.
* Requests for comments on paper topics (so that a presenter might get a
better idea of what his/her audience is interested in).
3.  Real-time chatting.
SCS members may meet online and exchange ideas/information instantaneously
(with NO long distance charges!).  SCSchat is text-based, real-time
chatting.  E.g., as someone types a message in Wollongong, Australia,
someone reads it in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
More info on chatting is available at  All
that is required is a Web browser (Java-capable) or Internet Relay Chat
(IRC) client.
