About the Award
Established in 1999, this award, which was named for one of the world's first commercial applications of computing (The Lyons Electronic Office), recognizes truly outstanding individuals in the field of information systems. These individuals may be academics or practitioners, but are always well-regarded in their respective communities for their exceptional contribution to the field.
Qualifications for the Award
All winners of the LEO Award are outstanding scholars or practitioners who have made a global impact on the field of information systems. Furthermore, they are all involved on the local level of the field, and act as role models to colleagues and students. They are well-regarded by their peers as well as those outside of the field for their professional work and personal integrity.
