Daniel Re: Future AAMAS affiliation of its annual conference. Unfortuntaely, due to various constraints, I was at AISB this year for only the last day and missed AAMAS My suggestion to my symposium chair, is that AISB might be better served by becoming biannual in the tradition of IJCAI/ECAI In fact the years IJCAI is not held. Or the years that ECAI is not held (odd numbeed years) From a European perspective, given the growing number and expense of conferences, alternating with ECAI might be in AISB's best interests. If AAMAS is to be annual, then it can move between AISB and another European Conference (eg ECAI). I feel that a biannual AISBC serves AISB better and AAMAS can show its support for AISB by alternating its affiliation between, say, ECAI and AISB. -- Regards --- Darryl N.
