The collaboration between our institute and the Enterprise Application Development (EAD) group of Prof. Dr. Jörg Lässig at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Applied Sciences Zittau/Görlitz (HZG, Hochschule Zittau/Görlitz) in Görlitz, Germany has a long tradition. Together, we have analyzed several classical optimization problems from logistics and scheduling, including scheduling against due dates and windows as well as the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP). We also jointly contributed works on Evolutionary Computational in general. An important aspect of our work always the benchmarking of optimization algorithms. We work together on the TSP Suite, a framework for implementing and comparing algorithms for the TSP.

Delegations from the EAD have visited us in China in 2013 (Prof. Dr. Jörg Lässig), 2015 (Prof. Dr. Jörg Lässig, Dr. Abhishek Awasti), and 2017 (Prof. Dr. Jörg Lässig, Mr. Markus Ullrich). During their 2017 visit, Prof. Lässig and Mr. Ullrich gave two interesting guest lectures on "Understanding Quantum Computing - Computing Model and Algorithms"  and "An Application Meta-Model to Support the Execution and Benchmarking of Scientific Applications in Multi-Cloud Environments," in our faculty, respectively. In turn, and Prof. Weise has visited the EAD in 2016 and 2017, both times giving research talks as well.

Prof. Lässig is a co-chair of our International Workshop on Benchmarking of Computational Intelligence Algorithms (BOCIA 2018) and a co-editor of our Special Issue on Benchmarking of Computational Intelligence Algorithms in the Computational Intelligence Journal. Mr. Ullrich has joined the program committees of both of our 2018 Black-Box Discrete Optimization Benchmarking Workshops, namely BB-DOB@GECCO and BB-DOB@PPSN.
