|Each year, CoNEXT will present a "Rising
Star" Award, recognizing a young researcher - generally, an individual who
has completed a PhD roughly within the past seven years - who has made
outstanding research contributions during this early part of their career.
One criteria of particular interest is very strong research contributions
made independently from the PhD advisor.
Awardees are selected by an Award Committee, appointed by the CoNEXT
Conference Steering Committee, who will be aware of the global nature of
the networking field, as well as the different research cultures that
can exist in different countries.
Nominations for the CoNEXT 2007 Rising Star Award will be solicited and
accepted in spring 2007.
Star Award Winners
The award to Matthias Grossglauser is in recognition of outstanding
