The new General Coordinates Network (GCN Circular #32419) is
pleased to announce self-service configuration of GCN Notice
notifications over email. This new feature will greatly simplify
and enhance the user experience for subscribing to GCN Notices.
Using the same accounts on as GCN Classic
Over Kafka, users can now sign up to subscribe to any of the
public GCN Notice types in any of the 3 legacy formats (text,
binary, VOEvent), and edit their settings at will.

To get started, sign in or sign up at, and
then select "Email Notifications" from the account dropdown menu.
Note that signing up for receiving emails via the new GCN does not
edit users' prior subscriptions to GCN Classic. When you would
like to unsubscribe from GCN Classic, please contact us via:
