Surprisingly, selecting a gift was not the difficult part, ASE members quickly deduced that prof Xie needed an upgrade for his wardrobe since his favorite T-Shirt is from a relic version of SIGSOFT ISSTA conference. ASE members thought the new Illinois Fighting Illini Nike Never Stops T-Shirt would be a great choice. However, the most difficult part was finding the adviser since the month of May includes several business trips in the US and China.
Although late, Prof. Xie finally received his gift. ASEers, Angello, Chiao, Davis, Ping, Wei, and Wing wish Prof. Xie a Happy Birthday!
