>     Dear colleague,
>     During the recent 3rd Congress of the Federation of African 
>     Immunological Societies (FAIS) in Cape Town (9-13/03/97) it was 
>     decided that there is a major need for improving communication between 
>     immunologists conducting research in Africa. An obvious and 
>     cost-effective way of doing so is by improving electronic 
>     communication. It was thus decided to establish a socalled listserv, 
>     which is a sort of e-mail discussion group to which anybody interested 
>     in the field of immunological research in Africa may subscribe. After 
>     subscribing, any e-mail message you submit to the list will be 
>     automatically broadcast to all subscribers. Similarly, you will 
>     receive all messages posted to the list by other subscribers.
>     With the help of Ross Coppel, who is running a similar listserv for 
>     the malaria research community, this African immunology listserv 
>     (called FAIS) is now up and running. Below you'll find instructions on 
>     how to subscribe to the list etc.
>     I sincerely hope that you will find this initiative a helpful tool in 
>     your research activities, and shall be pleased to hear any comments 
>     you may have regarding the list.
>     Yours sincerely,
