(Originally posted in the 2015 INFORMS blog).
ISMP is a big thing in the mathematical programming community: a triennial conference bringing together the experts in the field. In 2015 it was also a big thing for the OR/MS academic community on Twitter: we experienced unprecedented levels of live tweets describing what was going on in parallel sessions. For a huge conference where you are always faced with the dilemma of choosing which great talks to sacrifice, this is at least a consolation. And that is definitely a must for the INFORMS Annual Meeting!
Most of the community that helped boost #ismp2015 is here in Philadelphia and I am quite sure that what happened in Pittsburgh in July will be repeated here. Possibly #informs2015 will break another record. So stay tuned in hashtag #informs2015 on Twitter and help boost it too!
