- Tobias Flach for the design of novel loss-recovery mechanisms for Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) that minimize timeout-driven recovery. See the full paper athttp://nsl.cs.usc.edu/~tobiasflach/publications/Flach_Latency.pdf.
- Misbah Uddin for developing matching and ranking for network search queries in order to make operational data available in real-time to management applications. See the full paper athttp://www.cnsm-conf.org/2013/documents/papers/CNSM/p251-uddin.pdf.
Goldberg, Flach, and Uddin presented their findings to the Internet Research Task Force open meeting during IETF 91.
