David Kotz and Kobby Essien received mobile computing's most prestigious award for their technical paper: "Analysis of a Campus-wide Wireless Network".
From the SIGMOBILE website:
This paper was the first to systematically demonstrate how to measure and understand a production-scale wireless network, which was previously considered an impenetrable black box. This led to an incredible amount of follow-on work, with the measurement methods and analysis mechanisms proposed in this paper still being used. This paper was also the spark for the creation of the CRAWDAD data repository, which has been of immense value to the wireless research community.
