# Activities

I am co-organizing our weekly Research Seminar. Also, I am a member of the HPI's Research School on "Service-Oriented Systems Engineering".

Since 2017 I am a member of the HPI's board game club.

Past Activities:

- member of the organization committee for the 13th Symposium on Future Trends in Service-Oriented Computing 2018
- member of the organization committee for the 12th Symposium on Future Trends in Service-Oriented Computing 2017

### Power-Law Random SAT generator

The algorithm for this generator was proposed by Ansótegui et al. in "Towards industrial-like random SAT instances" (IJCAI 2009).

We used this generator for the experiments in "Phase Transitions for Scale-Free SAT Formulas" (AAAI 2017) and "Bounds on the Satisfiability Threshold for Power Law Distributed Random SAT" (ESA 2017).

The code of our implementation can be found here.
