Prof. Sami Erol Gelenbe
For Information and Communication Science and Technology
G-network (Generalized Queueing network or Gelenbe network)

Prof. Sami Erol Gelenbe is awarded;

For his pioneering research on “Modeling and Performance Evaluation of Computer Systems.” He invented the random neural network and the eponymous G-networks or Gelenbe Networks as a model for queueing systems.

Prof. M.Amin Shokrollahi
For Information Theory
Raptor codes

Prof. M.Amin Shokrollahi is awarded;

For his outstanding work on Communications: Raptor Codes. The world's most advanced forward error correction (FEC) code for data networks, Raptor codes invented by Shokrollahi in 2001, provide protection against packet loss by sending additional repair data used to reconstruct "erased" or "lost" data.
