RDM mailing list
Do you have any questions, do you want to organize an interesting symposium, do you have a vacancy, do you want to discuss something with colleagues: use this mailing list. Anyone who is professionally involved with RDM is welcome to use this mailing list.
To take part in the RDM discussion list you need to be registered as a 'subscriber'. There are no costs attached.

The RDM discussion list is not a website but a mail distributing programme. Mail sent to the 'list' is relayed to all subscribers.
NB, for the time being the archive is still open to everyone and can be found on the list at Ecompass.nl.
The discussion list is not moderated. Posts sent to the list – after affirmation by the writer – will appear on the list without intervention of a moderator.
Be careful what you send! Be careful you don't accidently send private messages to the entire list and please avoid 'Out-of-Office' posts (by pausing subscription).
If you only want to reply to one or two participants, don't use the standard reply function of your mail programme! This will send your reaction to all participants. Instead use the 'forward' function and fill in the name(s) of the recipients yourself.
Be sure to read the netiquette that accompanies the list.
Attachments carry the risk of viruses. We assume that users take the necessary safety precautions.
The list managers are not liable for any damage caused by use of the RDM discussion list.
