The NeuroIS community lost a visionary thinker. Dr. Hermann Zemlicka, who was an Austrian politician, member of the Gmunden City Council, and an entrepreneur, passed away at age 55 in June 2012. Dr. Hermann Zemlicka significantly contributed to the establishment of academic activities in Gmunden. Specifically, he was one of the major supporters of the “NeuroIS idea,” and he helped to establish the Gmunden Retreat on NeuroIS. Without his visionary support, it would not have been possible to bring this conference into being. In memoriam of this outstanding person, the Dr. Hermann Zemlicka Award will be given to “the most visionary paper.” The paper will be selected by the conference and program co-chairs.
