1) Mail your submission to "email@example.com".
NOTE: This is NOT the same address as the regular Circular submissions.
2) Similar to the regular Circulars, the email Subject-line must contain at least one of the following case-sensitive strings:
"LIGO", "Virgo", "VIRGO", or "LVC".
3) Your submission will be checked against the LVC-vetted list,
and you will receive a 'success' report or a 'problem' report (which offers solutions to what went wrong).
4) The TITLE, SERNUM, SUBJECT, DATE, & FROM will be prepended
to the body of your email submission, and will then be distributed.
The LVC Circulars (LIGO/Virgo Collaboration Circulars) are the same as the original Circulars,
but are separated out to a different submission/distribution list during the Proprietary Phase of LVC operations.
They contain information, results, conclusions about LVC Events and the potential/verified candidate counterparts detected in the EM band.
Operationally, there are only two differences between the Original Circulars and the LVC-Circulars:
1) You submit them to the "firstname.lastname@example.org" address (not the gcncirc@capel..." address).
(If you submit an LVC-related Circ to the regular Circ address, it will be rejected.)
2) The Subject line in the email submission must also contain one of the following strings:
"LVC", "LIGO", "Virgo", and "VIRGO" (note that VIRGO in all-capitals is NOT the correct form of the Virgo project,
but it is included here if people type it in all-caps in their haste to get the circular submitted).
Some example Subject lines might look like:
LIGO/Virgo G123456: Fermi-GBM trigger 123456789 has temporal coincidence
LIGO/Virgo G123456: Swift-XRT identifies 6 potential candidates
LIGO/Virgo G123456: Continued observations of iPTF Counterpart #3 shows fading
LIGO/Virgo G123456: List of near-term future observation regions by Project ABCD
(In fact, it is strongly encouraged by the LVC that the Subject line begin with: LIGO/Virgo Gnnnnnn
where 'nnnnnn' is the trigger number.)
Once the proprietary phase is over, the LVC Circulars will be made public
(they will be merged in with the regular Circulars archive, ADS, etc).
THE ORIGINAL CIRCULARS:
Beyond the two differences listed above, everything else about the LVC Circulars
is the same as the
regular Circulars, described here.
