Dr. Hermann Zemlicka Award

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 the NeuroIS Retreat. 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 is given to “the most visionary paper” by the Conference Committee each year.
