[so not as to spam the entire list, please reply to ME DIRECTLY:  [log in to unmask] 

I am preparing a grant proposal for continuing funding of MASON.  The  
proposal this year is actually for a small invited workshop to gather  
ideas about how we should extend MASON in the coming several years [we  
already have some ideas of our own but of course very much want to  
solicit involvement of the community].

1. As part of the proposal, I need some good examples of people from  
the community who have used MASON in novel ways or areas, OUTSIDE of  
GMU.  We're looking for examples big and small.  Of particular  
interest are:

	- examples in interesting and unexpected areas
	- undergraduate or high school classes using MASON
	- examples which have pushed MASON to its limits
	- dissertations or theses which have used MASON
	- publications!!!	[citations please]
	- Screenshots
	- Extensions to MASON

You name it.  If you've done something in MASON, send us a few  
citations -- BibTeX would be wonderful but not necessary -- and  
ideally a screenshot or two (if you can, use the "Save as PDF" option,  
not "Save as PNG", but we're not picky).

2. I would appreciate some quotes regarding MASON and your opinion of  
it.  Where does it fit in the pantheon of multiagent simulation  
toolkits?  How have you found its features and support?  Etc.

Thanks in advance for anything you can provide: and note that I need  
this fairly quickly.  Please help!
