Some sightings from INFORMS Pittsburgh

OK, a “real” blogger would have put together a dozen posts from the Pittsburgh INFORMS Meeting. But I guess I am not, since I am just plain exhausted from the meeting and can’t put together any extended words. Suffice it to say, I thought it was terrific. Some glitches naturally (sorry to those who were in Greentree with insufficient transportation: wish I had a mulligan on that!), but overall I was thrilled about the things we had control over: the plenaries, the receptions, the convention center setup, the scheduling. We had 3780 participants, an all-time record for OR conferences. Thanks to all who made that happen!
A few sightings on the web: the “Practical Communist” has some postings and some absolutely amazing pictures.

Procure IQ has a number of posts on the conference, including a summary of President Mark Daskin’s plenary.

I can’t read David’s Space, but he clearly was at the conference (before heading to Chicago) and also has some great pictures.

    Wow, thanks for the link. If you think that INFORMS might like to use any of my photos, just let me know and I can send whoever needs them the originals. All I ask for is credit (getting my name out there and all). 🙂

    If I get a chance to go next year, I’m going to have to be sure to carry my camera around even more!

    […] Michael Trick’s Operations Research Blog: I don’t know if anyone picked up on it, but the photographs I took in Pittsburgh have gotten some official notice. Well, unofficial “official” notice, in that I’ve now been linked to off of the Michael Trick’s blog (he was the general chair of the meeting). On balance, this has been a very good week for my ego.
