Various members of our research team have received awards related to their Research & Development activities. Sometimes the award is the result of joint collaboration with scientists from other organizations. These R&D Awards are listed starting with the most recently awarded:
Distinguished TPC member award at IEEE INFOCOM 2023
Sergey Gorinsky, Marco Fiore / March 2023
IEEE INFOCOM 2023
IMDEA Networks faculty Marco Fiore, and Sergey Gorinsky are among a select few of the TPC members whom the TPC chairs awarded as Distinguished Members of the committee. The TPC chairs recognized the Distinguished Members based upon ratings by peer TPC members, fairness in review scores, and promptness in meeting various deadlines during the review process.
1st Prize of the EIT Jumpstarter award
Dayrene Frómeta, Javier Talavante, Domenico Giustiniano, Borja Genovés / November 2022
An IMDEA Networks research team has won first prize in the food category of the competitive European EIT Jumpstarter program for its business idea LiFi4Food, which seeks to provide solutions for digital and precision agriculture. The prize valued at €10,000 is earmarked for the creation of this revolutionary startup. LiFi4Food offers an integrated, innovative, and sustainable communication system formed by self-sustainable and battery-free IoT (Internet of Things) devices to monitor and control environmental parameters in high-tech agri-food facilities such as vertical farms and greenhouses. It takes advantage of the LED lamps already installed in such sites to deploy a LiFi network that supplies the battery-free sensors (equipped with solar cells) with both power and data.

ML5G-PHY [channel estimation]. ITU Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning in 5G Challenge
Dolores Garcia Marti, Joan Palacios, Joerg Widmer / December 2020
ITU AI/ML 5G Challenge - Applying AI/ML in 5G networks. 15-17 December 2020.
The ML5G-PHY channel estimation challenge attacks one of the most difficult problems in the 5G physical layer: acquiring channel information to establish a millimeter-wave MIMO link (initial access) considering a hybrid MIMO architecture. Approaches in the challenge will lead to important insights into what can be achieved using data-driven and/or model-based approaches.
The IMDEA Networks team participated in the challenge ITU-ML5G-PS-025: ML5G-PHY- Channel Estimation with the name “ML-DOJO”. They ranked 1st in the competition.
IETF/IRTF Applied Networking Research Prize - ANRP 2017
P. Richter, F. Wohlfart, N. Vallina-Rodriguez, M. Allman, R. Bush, A. Feldmann, C. Kreibich, N. Weaver, V. Paxson / December 2016
Philipp Richter (Technische Universität Berlin) was awarded a 2017 IETF/IRTF Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) for a scientific study authored in collaboration with an international research team of 9 including Dr. Narseo Vallina-Rodriguez, a Research Assistant Professor at IMDEA Networks
This DTL grant is awarded for the pursuit of research that will lead to the development of software tools on the topics of privacy, reverse engineering efforts for transparency and discrimination. Researchers are expected to produce software tools and platforms that enable end-users to better understand or control how their personal information is being collected and used in deployed online services.
