The award winners were selected by the Nominations Committee from among 152 nominees.

Anja Feldmann is the scientific expert on the internet in Germany and a leading figure in the international internet research community. Her work on internet routing, traffic analysis and modelling has advanced basic research and played a decisive role in the ongoing development of the Internet. Feldmann's studies of the potentials and limits of web proxy caching have shaped the business decisions of countless internet services, and technologies for compressing and sending web page updates based on her findings have become ubiquitous elements in internet browsers and servers. Her recent work has focused on technologies for detecting and defending high speed networks against malicious attacks, as well as new Web applications and forms of internet usage.
