Each year, the program's Chairmen's Committee, a group of 100 chairmen/CEOs of global technology companies, nominate individuals and organizations from around the world whose visionary applications of information technology promotes positive social and economic progress. Nominations are evaluated by an independent board of CIO-level judges who select laureates, finalists and award recipients in 10 industry-related categories, to be honored at a Laureate Medal Ceremony. This year's ceremony and accompanying Gala Awards Program took place on June 2, 2008 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
The technology achievements honored by this program are preserved and protected in national archives and in over 350 universities, museums and research institutions throughout the world. Additional information about the program and a Global Archive of past laureate case studies and oral histories can be found at the Computerworld Honors web site: http://www.cwhonors.org.
