This CCL service lets you upload documents, software,
data, results, papers, presentations, training materials,

This service is FREE. However, if you are uploading commercial
software demo or promotional materials
for the commercial software that you are personally
associated with, please consider supporting CCL (use:
CCL Supporting Members and check also other
Paid Services of CCL).
We ask you not only for files, but also for documentation.
Documentation/information is essential to attract deserved attention to
your submission. If people do not know what it is and what it does,
they will not touch it. Would you?
are uploaded, the CCL administrator will place them in the public
area on the CCL Web site where they are easily accessible. Before you start
uploading the files please read Upload: Instructions, Tips and Motivation to make
sure that your submission generates the desired impact. Do not forget
to provide a link to the Web site(s) where people can get more information,
including your own. Please include documentation and remember to enter
useful information into the README file that will be indexed by the site's
Search Engine and is usually the first file that people review
(get their AIDA: Attention, Interest, Desire and Action:
make them download and use the materials!).
Before files can be placed in some public
area of the CCL Web site, they need to be reviewed by CCL
administrators. For obvious reasons we reserve the right not
to place some materials on the Web site without providing
reason for doing so. CCL is also not responsible for any legal claims
to the materials posted. It is the responsibility of the
submitter to make sure that materials can be publicly displayed
on the CCL Web site. By uploading the materials here, you also give
CCL the right to include them in CCL archives snapshot on the
DVD: CCL Archives on the DVD
that it sells at cost to support its operation.
The DVD is sold under the condition that it cannot be be further redistributed.
You have the right to remove uploaded materials from the CCL Web site
at any time by contacting CCL Administrators.
Please answer all queries below and click on

and will appear as a title of the README file below.
Provide keywords and search terms for
your submission, like you would do if you were submitting a paper
or a grant proposal. Please list them even when you are submitting
software or data. Separate them by commas. They will go to the
META tags in the header of the
README page. They are important for Search Engines. Example terms:
molecular modeling, sulphur parameters,
ab initio, torsional barrier, disulphide bridges, molecular mechanics,
Please provide a short description
(a README file) for your submission. Tell them what it is,
what it does, and where they can use it. Please read the
Upload Instructions and Tips for suggestions
what should go into it. If you enter plain text, the file names will
be automatically converted to links to uploaded files.
Likewise, all URLs
ftp://...) will be automatically
converted to active links. Since the plain text will be displayed exactly as
written in the box below, Make sure that you insert explicit line breaks.
If you have a problem to make it look right check the:
[FORMATTING EXERCISES] file. You can also enter HTML
encoded file: start from a a line with

(the README file and uploaded files will reside in the same directory,
so you can use relative links like:
Please provide CCL staff with instructions,
additional information, suggestions, etc. Do not assume that we know what
to do with the files and tell us as much as possible (please assume that
we know nothing...). This information is for CCL Administrators
only and will not be publicly displayed on the Web. For example: do we need to
unpack archives (e.g., *.tgz or *.zip file)?, rehash the links in README
page?, or use one of the files as an index page for your directory?, etc.
Descriptive directory name:
All your files will be placed under a single directory.
Please suggest a descriptive directory name (no spaces, only letters,
digits, hyphens and underscores allowed) under which your files
should be placed. Note that software, documents and data will
reside in separate directory trees, so you do not have to provide
this in the directory name. For example, if you are submitting
a software package, its NAME would be a good choice, e.g.:
QuickMolQuant. If you are
submitting data, paper, or images, utilities,
find a keyword that describes it best, e.g.,
Upload files that you want to deposit on the CCL
Web site. Your files will be saved in a single directory (your local
computer directory information will be removed). For this reason
file names need to be different. Please use
only A..Z, a..z, 0..0 and
period, hyphen and underscore in file names. Do not start file
names from a period. Other characters will be
automatically converted to underscores
(_). Provide a few word
description for each file. There are 10 file upload slots.
Click on the [Browse] button
and select a file for upload from your local computer. If you need
to upload more than 10 files please make a TAR or a ZIP archive and upload
the archive instead. You also have an option to rename the file
after upload. Click here
[Why?] to learn more, but often the files names on your
local machine contain version numbers or special characters that you
would want to remove. This option will allow you to do it without
renaming the files on your own computer -- they will be simply
saved with a different name on the CCL server.
Click on the
button when finished. You will be able to review your README file,
check your links to files, and review the invoice and pay on line
if your submission was commercial.
