Paper Accepted: Model Checking Normative Agent Organisations  
Thank you very much for submitting a paper to CLIMA this year. We are pleased to inform you that your paper has been accepted for presentation at CLIMA-X.

I've got as far as skimming the actual referees comments through my fingers - doesn't sound like they are asking for too much. The most negative referee complains that we haven't explained our formulae properly, however all his/her questions about them are answered in the paper so it's presumably just a question of sprinkling footnotes around the formulae saying "see section X for an explanation of these letters".

For the uninitiated (so, umm, all of you!) CLIMA stands for Computational Logic in Multi-Agent Systems (I imagine you all feel greatly enlightened).

Damn -- you have reminded me I have a conference paper to submit. I feel most disinclined *g*.

Remember "Publish or Perish".

I read that THES article, BTW. I didn't entirely agree with it, or at least, I feel the whole grant getting lottery is far more damaging/distorting to Science than the drive to publish, but that may be because my field doesn't make as heavy use of journal publication as most.

Sigh, I know *g*. And I've got two book proposals jabbing me in the ribs to be finished.

I haven't particularly researched in an area yet where there's any serious chance of grants. But it's been suggested to me that there might be some possibilities with my PhD topic, so I may have this delight to look forward to.

We had our annual research jamboree a couple of weeks ago, and it was very revealing to see which fields are heavy on journals and which on books.

(Sorry - that seemed to be the only way to congratulate someone on their CLIMA-X.)

*is embarrassed to have missed the opportunity for innuendo*

Now I'm wondering if I should drop a hint the the organising committee that they might want to call themselves CLIMA-10 this year.

CLIMA-X?? *titter*

Congratulations!! I assume you have to tell them that you're going to come? omg, did I just say that?
