The Network in Chemical Process Control represents a joint effort of thirteen European Departments, with two main stated objectives -
In the London Meeting, of September 15-16 1995, The Group decided for the publication of this Newsletter, seen as an effective way to keep Researchers in the area, belonging or not belonging to the Network, informed about our activity and efforts of cooperation.
The job for the Editors is essentially that of compiling in appropriate form for publication the information which the different partners may decide to provide.
The Electronic Mail communications system, the capacity of GETting files through FTP and the World-Wide-Web represent major tools for dissemination of information. We shall keep files of an 'Online Newsletter' in Word and Word Perfect formats, in a FTP ANONYMOUS location. It will be possible to get them with the FTP tool. This Newsletter will also be available in the WWW system. From this page, it will be possible to get into the different individual pages of Researchers, of Departments, of Universities, to have access to abstracts of publications or full publications, you name it...
Please, do contact us by E-Mail. We look forward to hearing comments and suggestions from you and to receiving news for publication.
