Mihai Pătraşcu (17 July 1982 – 5 June 2012) was a Romanian-American computer scientist at AT&T Labs in Florham Park, New Jersey, USA.
Pătraşcu attended Carol I National College in Craiova. As a high school student, he won multiple medals at the International Olympiad in Informatics. He completed his undergraduate and graduate studies in Computer Science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, completing his thesis under the supervision of Erik Demaine in 2008.
Pătraşcu’s work was concerned with fundamental questions about basic data structures. Pătraşcu received the Machtey Award for the best student paper at the Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science in 2008, and the Presburger Award from the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science in 2012, for breaking "many old barriers on fundamental data structure problems, not only revitalizing but also revolutionizing a field that was almost silent for over a decade."
Pătraşcu died in 2012 after suffering from brain cancer for a year and a half.
Seven years after his tragical dissapearance, the Organising Team of InfO(1)Cup proudly dedicate this 3rd edition of the contest in his honor.
