Subject: just curious, why SIGSAM losing members?
Crusing the net, I saw this, from SIGSAM home page, annual
>End of November 1993, SIGSAM had a total of 1004 members. End of May
>1995, SIGSAM has a total of 738 members. This decline is somewhat

Is not symbolic algebra a growing field? What do you think then
the decline means? Does it mean much? and why total membership
for SIG also on decline? too much $$ to join?
inquiring minds wan'a know...
