Thanks for the recap Michael, I wanted to write one, but I'm swamped right now.
Some more information:
- Aleksandr Mezin got failed because he did not share his work and did not involve his mentor. He had a risky project and google gave us more slots than we hoped for, so we accepted it.
- Markus Wick apparently produced work up until the mid-term review but found an internship and dropped the project altogether...
- Finally, we have no news from Fabian Bieler. He was doing a great job and was very involved but we stopped hearing from him very suddenly. We hope he is fine but we really wonder what could have happened to him!
Thank you to all the students who succeeded, we are looking forward to hearing your talk at XDC2014 in Bordeaux!
