Guiding Chinese Scientists to Germany
It must have been in September 1999, that I travelled to Zittau to attend a cosy little conference on fuzzy logic. Zittau is the small city in the most south-eastern corner of Germany neighbouring Poland and the Czech Republic. The conference was not the only reason to go there, but also that my father’s family originates from a town nearby. On the conference’s first day I went to my hotel’s breakfast room. Having had already long-term relations to China, particularly Hong Kong, and with many Chinese people, I sat down on the table of a Chinese looking man. As expected, he was an attendant of the conference as well - it was Da Ruan.
