Neisseria.org exists to provide an electronic resource for all individuals interested in research and clinical aspects of the Neisseria, especially Neisseria meningitidis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae. In addition, it aims to provide a home on the internet for the community of scientists and clinicians who attend the International Pathogenic Neisseria Conferences every two years. The site is intended to be a community resource run by and for the community and, to this end, members of the IPNC will be invited to form a group to run the site on a day to day basis.
The website is divided into a number of domains and subdomains, but these are in their infancy. It is proposed domains and subdomains will have 'editors' and 'sub-editors' who will be responsible for the content: the oversight group will ensure that only appropriate material and links are hosted by the site. Content will take the form of original material and/or links to other sites of interest. The original material can be hosted on the Neisseria.org server if desired and the webmaster can take plain text and convert it to hypertext if desired.
Currently the site is in development and we are anxious to consult as broadly as possible before going 'live'. All of the above are currently presented as proposals and the aim is to make the site flexible to the needs and desires of individuals, please explore the site and send your comments and suggestions for additional material to one of the following:
