------------------------------------------------------------------------ Event@CIG: To unsubscribe, read the info at the bottom of this message. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Dear colleagues, most probably you noticed that in the last months the traffic via the announcement distribution list event_(on)_in.tu-clausthal.de dramatically increased. Many of you certainly feel annoyed by this and of course we received large number of complaints. As the result we reconsidered our decision to maintain this list and decided to close it. The Event@CIG list was started as a small service for a closed group of people who wanted to distribute their CfPs focused at mainly logic programming, autonomous agent and multiagent systems and connected areas. For that end, they harvested a number of e-mail addresses including yours and started this moderated distribution list. The intention behind certainly was not to send spam around the world, but rather to let the computer science research community know about events we organize, or otherwise consider relevant. However, after a short time, many other people discovered our service and asked us whether they can use it for their announcements as well (of course we tried to keep all the distributed announcements in the scope of our research interests). This led to a dramatic increase of e-mail traffic via our list and we obviously annoyed many people to a large extent. We apologize to all of you for any inconvenience we might have caused you. Because of the reasons above and also because moderation and maintenance of this list requires more and more work, we decided to close this list. From now on, we won't relay any further announcements, or calls for papers. Thank you very much for your understanding. Event@CIG administrators. -- peter.novak_(on)_in.tu-clausthal.de
