The RockStar Award is SIGMOBILE's early career award. The Award recognizes an individual who has made recent outstanding research or product contributions to the field of mobile computing during the early part of that person's career.
In recognition of her significant contributions in the areas of mobile systems and mobile Web performance, and her mentoring and leadership efforts in improving diversity in the SIGMOBILE community.
For contributions to the understanding of how resource-constrained mobile devices can robustly understand, reason and react to complex user behaviors and environments through new paradigms in learning algorithms and system design.
In recognition of her research examining unconventional wireless spectrum frequencies to build next generation wireless systems and spearheading the field of "visible light sensing" which turns the ubiquitous light around us into a powerful medium that integrates data communication and human behavioral sensing.
In recognition of his outstanding early-career contributions and impact in the field of wireless computer networks.
For contributions to the use of wireless signals in the context of novel applications, including battery-free communications, health monitoring, and gesture recognition.
In recognition of significant contributions, early in his career, to wireless connectivity, with an emphasis on novel technologies for wide-area wireless access and smart antenna networking.
Romit Roy Choudhury
In recognition of significant contributions, early in his career, to mobile sensing and wireless networking, with an emphasis on location and cross-layer protocols.
For contributions to understanding mobile design tradeoffs, driven by novel platforms and large longitudinal studies of mobile users.
For contributions to understanding wireless interference, and for service to the research community.
The SIGMOBILE RockStar Award recognizes one or more recent technical contribution(s) made in the early part of a mobile computing researcher's career, resulting in notable influence on our field. Early career for an individual is defined as within 10 years of receiving their highest university degree or younger than 40 years of age at the time of the nomination.
Selection is based on the impact of the candidate's work in creating promising new ideas, paradigms, and tools, related to mobile computing. Depth, impact, and novelty of the individual's contributions will be key criteria upon which the RockStar Award Committee (RAC) will evaluate the nominees.
Deadline for Nomination: 15th February for award in that calendar year.
Following an open call for nominations, nominations should be addressed to the Chair of the Rockstar Awards Committee (Prof. David Kotz (firstname.lastname@example.org). The nominator should solicit recommendations from colleagues in the field who are most familiar with the nominee's achievements. An individual may nominate, or endorse, multiple nominees; self nominations are not allowed. Per ACM policy, no members of the selection committee may serve as nominator or endorser.
Each nomination should consist of the following items:
