      <h1> GRASS News - The newsletter of the GRASS Project </h1>
<!-- END OF HEADER -->


The GRASS newsletter aims at covering the gap between scientific
publications and manuals on one hand and the mailing list on the other
hand. Articles shall not be as scientific/professional as in
scientific journals and reach beyond the usual question-answer
structure of a mailing list.  The review process is a benign one, just
to ensure the quality of contributions. Moreover by the way of the
newsletter new modules can be explained & presented briefly and hence

If you are considering writing an article please add the commands
used, so that the reader can reproduce it. Further more, your article
should be written in <a href="http://www.latex-project.org/">Latex</a>. 
For instructions which format/style shall be used, please have a look at this 
preliminary <a href="template.tex">template.tex</a>.

If you do not know Latex yet, don't be scared as it is quite easy.
You might want to have a look at the Latex Cheat Sheet 
<a href="http://www.stdout.org/~winston/latex/">(PDF)</a> 
to get to know a few commands, e.g. how to enumerate, make tables etc.

<h3>Newsletter topics:</h3>

<li> getting off the ground with GRASS - articles targeting GRASS novices </li>
<li> presentation of GRASS capabilities e.g. modeling, animation, spatial statistics </li>
<li> presentation/description of new/noteworthy GRASS modules (rather technical)</li>
<li> Programmer niche e.g. "how to become a GRASS developer -- step 1"</li>
<li> forthcoming GRASS capabilities e.g. new functions in 5.7</li>
<li> summary of GRASS development, discussions</li>
<li> new GRASS related publications - in which journal & abstract </li>
<li> Interviews, misc.</li>
<li> upcoming events, news & news about past meetings etc.</li>
<li> extra-section: presentations of non-GRASS GIS/RS related programs </li>

Fancy images are welcome, but please use the Encapsulated Postscript format (<b>EPS</b>)!

We want to proceed to a fully grown GRASS newsletter. There
is lots of work and any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.

<b>To do list:</b>

<li> create a web article submission form</li>
<li> find native speakers for check spelling and grammar of submissions</li>
<!-- ???? <li> taking over a section for editing (in Latex) (e.g. news, publications)</li> -->

If interested, please send an email to the Editor-in-Chief (see below).</td>



Articles should be send to the respective section editor or to the Editor-in-Chief

   <dd>Martin Wegmann<br>
   <dd <a href="mailto:Martin Wegmann <surname at biozentrum.uni-wuerzburg.de>" >surname at biozentrum.uni-wuerzburg.de</a></dd>
   <dd> until you receive a confirmation mail, please consider your mail as not delivered, this can be caused by misclassification by the spam filter
  <dt><strong>Editorial Board:</strong>
   <dd>Paul Kelly, Markus Neteler and Martin Wegmann</dd>
  <dt><strong>Editor News section/Publication section etc:</strong>
   <dd>volunteers needed</dd>

We would like to acknowledge the R News editorial board of the 
<a href="http://www.r-project.org/"> R-project</a>, for without their
contribution of the R news *.tex and *.sty file the GRASS newsletter
would have taken much more time to reach the current level.
