GCN LVC Circulars Request
This page allows people to sign up for the Private Phase LIGO/Virgo (LVC) Circulars within GCN.
Even if you are already receiving the regular GCN Circulars, you still need to fill out this page,
because this is a separate vetting/distribution list for the Private-phase LVC-related Circulars.
(Circulars are prose-style messages submitted by list-members
and are re-distributed to the "LVC Circulars" distribution list.)
There are 6 pieces of information needed to sign-up for the GCN LCV Circulars:
a) Your full name: John Doe
b) Your institutional and/or project affiliation: NOAO
c) The email address you want to receive the Circulars: email@example.com or John.Doe.firstname.lastname@example.org
d) Your email account name you will be using to submit: jdoe
e) Your domain from which you will be submitting: noao.edu
f) Whether you want to receive (or not) to this entry -- 1 to receive, 0 not to; [select a button].
Items d & e may seem like a duplication of item c. Item c can sometimes be different than from where you will be submitting.
Also, some institutions use email servers/forwarders that allow for a generic email address such that
email can be delivered to a person no matter how their true account name/machine moves or changes.
Items d and e are used in the validation process for circular submissions.
You can have multiple entries in this Circulars vetting/receiving list.
Item f allows you to have submit-only entries (e.g. say a backup gmail.com account),
and there can also be more than one receive entry.
For more information on the GCN LVC Circulars.
1) Enter information about you in the box below. (Items with a red asterisk are required fields.)
2) Hit the "Send LVC Circulars request to LVC (& GCN) Admin" button (at bottom of page).
(This will send me an email (& CC you) with the information you entered.)
3) How to and Where to become a member of the LVC LV-EM Forum.
(LV-EM Forum membership is needed during the initial proprietary phase for LVC to approve your request).
And when LVC approves your Forum request, I can then add you to the LVC Circulars vetting/distribution list.)
