Dr. Tibor Gyires, School of Information Technology, was awarded the Hungarian Neumann Award by the John von Neumann Computer Society in Hungary.  Past recipients include Bill Gates and Andrew Grove (the founder and CEO of Intel). The award is presented to those eminent international or Hungarian-born computer scientists whose professional activities have contributed to the development of Hungarian information technology and its international recognition.

Dr. Gyires’ research areas include traffic analysis of high-speed networks, simulation modeling of networks, and network capacity planning and performance prediction. He developed traffic engineering methods for the optimal allocation of network resources in high-speed networks and his results were applied in large enterprise networks.  He has published numerous articles in journals such as IEEE/ACM Transactions of Networking and Mathematical and Computer Modelling.  He has also published several papers in conference proceedings and book chapters.
