Our group warmly congratulates our Master's student Qi Qi [齐琪] at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) [中国科学技术大学], who completer her Master's degree in Computer Science. Ms. Qi has been an outstanding student supervised by Prof. Dr. Thomas Weise. She has significantly contributed to our Optimization Benchmarking project and also has given two conference reports, at GECCO 2017 and ICACI 2018. Ms. Qi will now join the group of Prof. Tianbao Yang at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa, USA. We wish her all the best for her future career and pursuit of a PhD degree.
