Samuel Rodrigo and Crispin Gomez have read last week their doctoral thesis and both have made a note of registration of honor "cum laude".

Samuel Rodrigo's thesis is entitled "Cost Effective Implementations Routing for On-chip Networks"and was directed by PhD. Jose Flich. Among the members of the selection board could be found names as notorious as PhD. José Duato, PhD. Federico Silla and PhD. Olav Lysne, which will be the new boss of Samuel from December at his new job on Simula Research in Oslo, Norway. 

Crispin Gomez's thesis is titled "Low-Memory Techniques for Routing and Fault-Tolerance on the Fat-Tree Topology" and has been co-directed by Phd. M.E. Gomez and Phd. Pedro López. We hope that also does very well for his new internship at Intel in its branch in Barcelona, Spain.

Another of our postgraduate researchers, PhD Rafael Ubal, who jointed in lasts weeks to staff of "Northeastern University" in Boston, Massachusetts, USA from where it tells us about his quick adaptation period to the research group in which him currently works.
