[PVS] Result of Call for Votes on bids to host ITP-2011



Hello --

Voting has closed for the Call for Votes on bids to host ITP-2011, as
announced on Feb. 18 (see
http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/kaufmann/itp-2011-bids.html).  The
result was computed using VoteEngine 0.99, downloaded from
http://vote.sourceforge.net/, and the output is shown below.  (I also
wrote my own little program to compute each round and checked that its
results completely agreed with those of VoteEngine.  I also checked
and fixed spelling typos.)

Congratulations to the team from The Netherlands on its winning bid!
And thank you to all of those who submitted bids, which we found to be
very impressive.

In the output below, we have of course:

C = China
D = Denmark
N = Netherlands
S = Spain
U = USA

Unresolved Tie

..........

So I resolved the tie by branching: In one run, I removed Spain while
in the other, I instead removed Denmark.  The respective results are
below.  (Note: 3 people voted only for Denmark while 1 person voted
only for Spain, which explains the discrepancy in "VOTES".)
