wolfram Boeck

martin Cooper

For contributions to the understanding
of dielectric behavior of SF6 insulated
systems for high- and extra-high-voltage
substations and transmission lines

For pioneering contributions to mobile
wireless technology, including the first
handheld cellular telephone

A pioneer in exploring the potential of SF6 (sulfur hexafluoride)
as a dielectric insulator, Wolfram Boeck provided the power industry with technology that enables reliable and efficient high-capacity
electricity transmission. Prof. Boeck's research on SF6 began in the
1960s, resulting in the first gas-insulated, hermetically encapsulated
high-voltage switchgear. He addressed key aspects of SF6 as an insulting gas, including development of the "volume time law" that
describes time lag as a function of stressed gas. Prof. Boeck also investigated insulation coordination and methods for avoiding external effects and for monitoring insulation quality using UHF signals.
He championed the implementation of SF6 in practical devices and
standards, resulting in space-efficient gas-insulated substations and
reliable gas-insulated transmission lines, which have been implemented worldwide as safe methods for supplying power.
An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Boeck is a Professor Emeritus with the
Technische Universit√§t M√ľnchen, Munich, Germany, and lives in
Meersburg, Germany.

The "father of the cellular phone," Martin Cooper is responsible
for a technology that arguably has had the greatest impact on
global society over the past 50 years. Mr. Cooper conceived, and
led the effort to develop, a personal, portable radio handset that
could be utilized as a normal telephone by anyone, anytime, anywhere. The result was the introduction of the first truly mobile
telephone in 1973. Mr. Cooper also formulated the Law of Spectral Efficiency (Cooper's Law), which states that the maximum
number of voice conversations or equivalent data transactions that
can be conducted in all of the useful radio spectrum doubles every
30 months. This observation allows a prediction that technology
can continue indefinitely to anticipate and fulfill the continued
growth of the interconnected world.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Mr. Cooper is chairman of Dyna LLC,
Del Mar, CA, USA.

IEEE Internet Award
Sponsored by Nokia Corporation

Kimberly Claffy and vern paxson

For seminal contributions to the field of Internet measurement, including security
and network data analysis, and for distinguished leadership in and service to the
Internet community by providing open-access data and tools

The pioneering and continued contributions of Kimberly Claffy
and Vern Paxson have provided a deeper understanding of how
the Internet works, the traffic it carries, and how to combat
threats. Prof. Paxson was among the first to empirically study the
modern Internet and the first to identify the substantial challenges involved in measuring and simulating the Internet. He
introduced the usefulness of statistical techniques for gathering
data and sparked resurgence in measurement research. Prof. Paxson's "Bro" network monitoring system established him as widely
recognized expert on network-based attacks. Dr. Claffy provided
some of the first descriptions of "traffic flows," which are now
mainstream and fundamental to network monitoring, modeling,
and management. In 1997 she founded a research institute, now

called the Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA) at
the University of California, San Diego, to provide and enable a
more scientific approach to Internet research. Through CAIDA,
Dr. Claffy has developed and improved network measurement,
analysis, and visualization tools and methods and created a publicly accessible collection of network data for use by researchers
worldwide.
Dr. Claffy is the director of CAIDA and an adjunct professor with the University of California, San Diego, CA, USA.
An IEEE Senior Member, Dr. Paxson is a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA, and holds a joint appointment with the International Computer Science Institute.
