Editorial

Dear Member of the SIGMM Community,

Welcome to the last SIGMM Records of 2010!

When you look for the Records on the web pages of SIGMM, located conveniently at http://sigmm.org/records, you will notice that accessing the Records these days brings you to the server that formerly hosted sigmm.org at UT Dallas. The web team is working with the other volunteers who contributed to the old pages in migrating to the new server, which means adapting to a new layout and a completely different CMS. Please don’t be annoyed if you find broken links pointing to sigmm.org/path/to/page, please help us to find and fix those problems instead. You can probably still find the content at sigmm.utdallas.edu/path/to/page. Read more
