This prize was created in 2010 to honor the memory of Patrick Denantes, a doctoral student in Communication Systems at EPFL, who tragically died in a climbing accident on July 12, 2009.
The Patrick Denantes Memorial Prize is attributed once a year to the author of an outstanding doctoral thesis from the School of Computer and Communication Sciences.
The prize is awarded by a jury and presented to the laureate at the School’s end-of-year event. Financial sponsorship is provided by the Denantes family and the Nokia Research Center.
