I'm a PhD student with a limited budget for attending conferences. I want to know which conferences I should attend to gain more experience/knowledge. My field of study is Mathematical Programming (more precisely, Mixed Integer Linear Programming and Stochastic Programming). I already know about INFORMS and EURO conferences but these conferences are too huge and you may not be able to take the most advantage [this is what someone told me]. Do you think I should still attend INFORMS or EURO conferences? What are other good OR/MS conferences to attend?

International Symposium on Mathematical Programming seems to fit your topics of interest.

The Mixed Integer Programming Workshop series, held annually in North America, would seem to be a good fit with your interests. It's a comparatively small, tightly focused meeting, with only one "track". Sessions are generally technical (rather than modeling/application orientation). The 2018 meeting will be held in June at Clemson University.
