Aaron Sterling had the nice suggestion (in comments here) for site promotion at FOCS: his idea was:
a poster with a few "best questions" in large print on it: representatives of
- community wiki,
- a reference request where a top expert swooped in and resolved the issue, and
- an open problem such as an NP-reduction where answerers solved it on the spot
Any nominations ? One per answer, and specify which category: in each case, also pick an answer if none was accepted. If we can get some nominations within a week I can mock up a poster and stick it at the registration desk.
Update: Great suggestions all. Any thoughts on the best way to lay these out on a poster ? One idea would be to orient the poster in landscape mode and have three columns, with 1/2 questions/answers in each.
Update 2: For logistical reasons, I had to can the poster idea. but I thought I'd use a variant of what Joshua was suggesting, which was to use a single sheet for each question, with the question on the front and the answer on the back. I can generate a number of copies for different questions, and try to slip them into people's registration bags :).
Here's an example of what I'm thinking. Tell me what you think. AND SOON :)
Update 3: New version with only answer hints. Thoughts ?
Update 4: I'm in Las Vegas now, and successfully got a sheet inserted in each registration packet, as well as scattering copies of the sheets on registration desks. I hope this will encourage more people to visit.
