Announcement: Passing of Sally Floyd

We are sad to announce the passing of Sally Floyd, a long-time SIG member and past SIGCOMM Award winner (2007) for her far-reaching contributions to Internet architecture and her work in identifying practical ways to control and stabilize Internet congestion. Sally also held the position of SIG Vice-Chair from 1995 till 1999, and served as Program co-Chair of the 1996 SIGCOMM conference. She is also remembered as a caring mentor and thoughtful collaborator to many members of our community.

Congratulations to Ethan Katz-Bassett on winning the 2019 SIGCOMM rising star award

The award is in recognition of outstanding research contributions, early in his career, in improving the reliability and performance of Internet services. His practical and principled measurement-driven approach has led to innovative high-impact contributions across academia and industry.

The rising star award committee, comprised of Lixin Gao (University of Massachusetts, Amherst), Thomas Karagiannis (MSR Cambridge, chair), Craig Partridge (Colorado State University), Lili Qiu (University of Texas at Austin).
