Ed,
Charles and i discussed this. we were thinking
of having a different kind of contest this year.

one idea was to have a prize for the best explanation (formula, g.f.,
recurrence) or proof of a conjecture for
an existing sequence

we didn't get around to discussing details.

but we might - for instance - have a list of
sequences where any formula is lacking. Or where
there is an unproved conjecture

An example is A098550.

If people on this list like the idea, plse send me a list of A-numbers.

btw, we also need to choose the winner of the A250000 prize.  i have a list
of candidates, which i send out soon for comments




Best regards
Neil
