AAMAS-16: Singapore

This series is written by Katie about her trip to AAMAS 2016 in Singapore, Singapore.

I found my time in Singapore to be jam packed.  Between attending the AAMAS Agents Summer school, presenting a paper at AAMAS, networking, and enjoying the city, I admittedly did not take the time to blog nightly as I often do on trips.  As such, this post is more of a photo college than a normal blog post.

I enjoyed my time in Singapore, and found that with a 9 night stay I was able to really integrate myself into the city and culture.  I look forward to visiting Singapore again – the food, culture, and tourism infrastructure are exceptional.

We ended our last night enjoying an open-air concert that seemed to be a high-school graduation party. We sat in the grass for hours listening to the music and watching the party.
