We show that a broad class of affine manifolds, including all complete affine manifolds, must have vanishing simplicial volume. This provides some further evidence for the veracity of the Auslander Conjecture.

Along the way, we provide a simple cohomological criterion for aspherical manifolds with normal amenable subgroups of π_1 to have vanishing simplicial volume. This establishes a special case of a conjecture due to Lück.

This is joint work with Jean-François Lafont and Michelle Bucher.
