The paper"Network Information Flow" by Prof. Ning Cai and his coauthors wasselected for the 2018 ACM SIGMOBILE Test-of-Time Paper Award. The paper,which was first published on IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, Volume46, Issue 4 in July 2000, is universally recognized as a landmark paper of thefield of network coding. This is the seminal work on network coding that had aprofound impact on the networking，information theory, and mobile systemscommunities. The information theoretic analysis led to significant academicwork for more than a decade in the networking community on leveraging networkcoding to build systems that achieve higher reliability and throughput.
