Sally Floyd

The IAB notes with sadness the passing of former IAB member Sally Floyd.  Her work included critical insights into congestion control and network simulation that have guided both modern protocol design and common router implementations.  She was the author of key technical work on rate control, selective acknowledgment, unilateral address fixing, and multicast.  As a member of the IAB, she helped guide transitions in both the IRTF and IETF with a gentle spirit and an open mind.

Our thoughts are with her family, friends, and the communities that have lost her light.
