On July 3, the 5th edition of the Télécom Paris thesis prize took place. The three winners presented their doctoral work and its prospects in five minutes before a jury from the academic and business worlds, representing all of the school’s fields of research. Despite the particular conditions of the remote mode and its public broadcast online in real time, they were able to show their passion and clearly present their results, which are often technical and highly specialized.
1st prize : Céline Comte, « Resource management in computer clusters : algorithm design and performance analysis » (supervised by Thomas Bonald and Fabien Mathieu)
2nd prize : Mathurin Massias, « Sparse high dimensional regression in the presence of colored heteroscedastic noise: application to M/EEG source imaging » (supervised by Joseph Salmon and Alexandre Gramfort)
In addition, we hail the quality of four other nominees whom the jury, with regret, was unable to select as prizewinners:
- Martin Cordier, « Entanglement and photon pair generation in hollow-core fiber » (supervised by Isabelle Zaquine, Philippe Delaye, and Eleni Diamanti)
- Alexandre Garcia, « Prediction of Structured opinion outputs: Theoretical and Methodological Aspects » (supervised by Florence d’Alché-Buc, Chloé Clavel, and Slim Essid)
- Gourab Ghatak, « Millimeter Wave Multi-RAT Small Cells for Heterogeneous Mobile Services: Performance Analysis and Optimization » (supervised by Marceau Coupechoux and Antonio De Domenico)
- Olivier Spitz, « Higly coherent quantum cascade lasers for mid-infrared applications » (supervised by Frédéric Grillot and Mathieu Carras)
On 29 March 2019, following the Doctoral Graduation Ceremony, Télécom Paris presented its thesis awards in order to distinguish three innovative doctors:
- 1st prize : Wanyu Liu, Information theory as an unified toom to understand and design human-computer interaction (supervisors Olivier Rioul, Michel Beaudouin-Lafon, Yves Guiard).
- 3e prix : Antoine Houdard, Statistical Modeling of the Patches DC Component for Low-Frequency Noise Reduction (supervisor : Andrés Almansa et Julie Delon)
On 23 March 2018, following the PhD Graduation Ceremony, Télécom Paris presented its PhD thesis awards in recognition of three innovative PhD students out of ten candidates:
- 1st place Grigor Antipov (Eurecom): Deep Learning for Semantic Description of Visual Human Traits
- 2nd place El Mehdi Amhoud: Coding Techniques for Space Division Multiplexed Optical Fiber Systems
- 3rd place Jingjing Zhang (Eurecom): The Interplay Between Caching, Feedback and Topology in the Wireless Broadcast Channel
It was a difficult choice for the jury, chaired by Karine Gosse (Dassault Systèmes), since the three pitches were outstanding!
