September has been an excellent month for the Operations Research & Scheduling group at Ghent University. Three PhD students have presented their work to the jury and have defended their work in front of family and friends. All of them have publications in flagship academic journals and parts of their work are still under submission. I am happy and proud that I, Mario Vanhoucke, acted as an advisor for these three young new academics!
