Our group also cooperates with the Clausthal University of Technology (Technische Universität Clausthal) in Clausthal-Zellerfeld, Germany. Our researcher Dr. Zijun Wu did his PhD in the Institute of Applied Stochastics and Operations Research (IASOR) of the Mathematics branch of the Faculty of Mathematics/Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering of that university and maintains a strong research collaboration with Prof. Dr. Michael Kolonko of the IASOR, resulting in several publications in top-level journals. Prof. Kolonko is also a member of both of the program committees of our 2018 workshops on Black-Box Discrete Optimization Benchmarking, BB-DOB@GECCO and BB-DOB@PPSN. Prof. Weise visited the IASOR in 2017 to give a research talk.
