About the Award
The Jonathan B. Postel Service Award was established by the Internet

service to the data communications community. The award is focused on 
sustained and substantial technical contributions, service to the 
community, and leadership. With respect to leadership, the committee 
places particular emphasis on candidates who have supported and enabled
