BISA Email List

The BISA email list is a moderated list for the dissemination of information from members to members about conferences, workshops and other events, calls for papers, BISA own news and calls, and other related matters. If you wish to recieve these emails you need to be a member to subscribe, however members are not automatically added to the list.  All members who have subscribed can send and recieve the emails under the following limitations.

If your emails are not sent or you do not recieve the emails this maybe for a variety of reasons:

  • we may not have your correct email address.
  • you may not have subscribed, please read below for more information.
  • you may not be a current member.

We cannot send attachments via the email list to protect our membership against trojan viruses that maybe contained in such attachments. Please put all the information from the attachment into the body of the email you wish to circulate, and include a URL weblink to relevent or futher information.  We ask that you keep messages concise, and that emails be in plain text only - not formatted HTML as the may be slightly corrupted when sent.
Messages sent to the list are moderated and not circulated instantly.  The messages are checked for suitability against our rules before circulation.  Because of this moderation process at times there can be a delay between when you send the message and when it is circulated, especially during periods of holidays or weekends.  Therefore please do not attempt to circulate messages with very short deadlines we may not send them out.
