Thanks to some excellent initiative by members of our community, there was a concerted effort to socialize OR.SE at INFORMS 2019 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

How was OR.SE received by those you interacted with?
Are there any actionable takeaways for the OR.SE community?

    $\begingroup$ Not really an answer but INFORMS put up a video of the awards, which sort of gives you a feel for some of the atmosphere; other portions of the conference were nothing like that. $\endgroup$

INFORMS was good. It's a big conference and the OR.SE presence was there, but somewhat diffuse.

  • The conference had "OR Stack Exchanger" badge ribbons looked good:

  • Stack Exchange printed up a bunch of postcard-sized flyers, which were prominently on display in the INFORMS Center in the exhibit hall:

I handed out a bunch of these—maybe other folks did too?

  • They also sent a bunch of Stack Exchange stickers, but unfortunately they were delayed in transit and didn't arrive until just before the conference ended:

If anyone wants some postcards or stickers, let me know! I have a lot of them and am happy to mail them to you if you want to bring them to your next conference.
