Mailing Lists

There are a number of mailing lists for HCI professionals. Many of the smaller mailing lists are only sporadically active.

ACM SIGCHI operates a number of specialized mailing lists. Some of these mailing lists are described here. For a full list of ACM SIGCHI listserver services, see http://www.sigchi.org/listserv/.

If you are new to mailing lists, you might want to read our short introduction to Using Mailing Lists.

ErgoIHM

"Cette liste de diffusion a pour objet l'échange d'informations sur l'ergonomie et le facteur humain. Il s'agira plus particulièrement de discuter de problématiques et méthodologies relatives à l'ergonomie de l'interaction homme-machine, et de l'ergonomie du logiciel. Néanmoins, il pourra être question d'ergonomie de la fiabilité, du facteur humain (erreurs "humaines") notamment dans l'industrie. Il pourra y être question d'ergonomie des organisations, d'ergonomie physique (implantation physique et étude de postes de travail)." "This mailing list has as an aim the exchange of information on ergonomics and the personal element. It will more particularly be a question of discussing problems and methodologies relating to ergonomics of the man-machine interaction, and the ergonomics of the software. Nevertheless, it could be question of ergonomics of reliability, of the personal element ("human "errors) in particular in industry. It could be question of ergonomics of the organizations there, of physical ergonomics (physical establishment and study of working stations)."

I need to buy zithromax because I was exposed to chlamydia again after already being treated for it previously. Is it legal to buy antibiotics online without a prescription?
