About that time of the year. I'm going for the first time this year.

Anybody else going, and would there be any interest in an SE-meetup?

  • I'm going, arriving late Sunday, and will be happy to meet up. It will be my first time, too.

    I arrive late Monday- I think a SE meetup would be a great idea Oct 7, 2015 at 21:54
  • Okay. I arrive Monday 5-ish. Let me look around and find something close. Try to shoot for Monday evening, maybe? @Verbeia

  • @kale - sounds great. Maybe set up an event in the pathable site?

    @kale That link doesn't work for me -- it claims I don't have permission to view it. :-P Oct 9, 2015 at 3:14
  • @BrettChampion I'm a pathable noob. I'll add you, but I don't see a way to make it public. Any ideas?

  • Cannot attend this year, but wish you a great conference! To go with AC/DC: have a drink on me 😊! With all the SE folks around this is bound to be fun event.

  • Not this year. New kid and my back-up is having carpal tunnel surgery. Hopefully next year.

    Would any of you conference attendees be willing to write about your experience(s) for the site blog? Oct 20, 2015 at 20:17

After a few venue changes, we made it! Thanks Kale for arranging the event and Brett for organising the table.

Front row: Kale, user21, Stan Silver

Back row: Peter Roberge, Chip Hurst, Zviovich, Anton Antonov (obscured), me, P Fonseca, Edmund and Daniel Lichtblau

    Haha! That's the elusive @user21 in the middle front row. Great meeting everyone.

  • I think image processing using mathematica should allow us to guess user21's name from his name tag ;-)

    What happened to me on this photo is similar to what happened to Mike Wazowski in the Monsters Inc. commercial. Nov 2, 2015 at 1:24
  • @Anton, you should've asked for a retake! :) Nov 5, 2015 at 12:24
  • @J.M. I became aware of my obscured presence in the chosen photo ten days after the conference. Nov 5, 2015 at 18:30
  • @Anton, hopefully you can ensure that you're not eclipsed in the pictures this year. :) Oct 10, 2016 at 5:35
  • @J.M. I will definitely try! Oct 10, 2016 at 7:02

Not really an answer, but since the Pathable site isn't all that conducive for a public meeting, here's where the meetup is planned:

StackExchange reserved table at Tuesday's lunch.

1501 S Neil St

Champaign, IL 61820

Tuesday, October 20th @ 12:00 pm CDT

  • What day? ..... Oct 12, 2015 at 15:29

  • Tue night is the WRI sponsored networking dinner, 6-9 - I'm attending. Any chance you can move this to Wed? - There's a closing gathering on Thur eve as well. Oct 12, 2015 at 22:56
  • @kale are we set up for Wed? Please send me the invite too.
    – Zviovich
    Oct 12, 2015 at 23:02
  • @alancalvitti There's a keynote dinner on Wednesday. Maybe we could do a meetup a little earlier on Tuesday at the expense of a session?

    Oct 12, 2015 at 23:31
  • What about getting together for lunch 12-12:15pm any day?
    – Zviovich
    Oct 13, 2015 at 11:51
  • @kale, sounds good. Waiting for invite. Oct 13, 2015 at 20:25
  • @alancalvitti, Zviovich I've moved it to lunchtime on the 20th. Hopefully more people can attend then...

  • Sounds good. I'm in a session that finishes at noon on Tuesday so I may be a few mins late.

    All, @brettchampion has reserved us a table in the ballroom for lunch on Tuesday. It'll have a StackExchange sign displayed.

  • Note comment, @Edmund. I'll update the meeting for the others.

Very proud to report that at least four of the 10 innovator awards went to Mma.SE members - congrats to kale, Paul Abbott and Philip Maymin (and me). If there are others amongst the winners please edit this answer.

I'd post pictures but this doesn't seem possible from a phone.
