Milan Vojnovic Wins the 2010 SIGMETRICS Rising Star Researcher Award

ACM SIGMETRICS is pleased to announce the selection of Dr. Milan Vojnovic of Microsoft Research as the recipient of the 2010 ACM SIGMETRICS Rising Star Researcher Award in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the analysis and performance-oriented design of computer systems and services.

Dr. Vojnovic is a Researcher with Systems and Networking group at Microsoft Research Cambridge, United Kingdom. He received his Ph.D. in Communication Systems from EPFL, Switzerland, in 2003, and both M.Sc. and B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Split, Croatia, in 1998 and 1995, respectively. His research interests are in the architecture and performance evaluation of computer systems and services. In particular, algorithms and systems for data transport, information dissemination, mobile computing, decentralized network systems and services, online services, and algorithms for processing of large-scale data.

He received IEEE IWQoS 2007 Best Student Paper Award with Shao Liu and Dinan Gunawardena for a work on congestion control protocols, ACM SIGMETRICS 2005 Best Paper Award with Laurent Massoulie for a work on the performance of peer-to-peer file dissemination, IEEE INFOCOM 2005 Best Paper Award with Jean-Yves Le Boudec for a work on random mobility models, and ITC-17 2001 Best Student Paper Award with Jean-Yves Le Boudec for a work on equation-based congestion control. In 2005, he was awarded ERCIM Cor Baayen Award.
