The IMIA François Grémy Award of Excellence committee is pleased to announce that the call for candidates is open. The closing date for receipt of nominations and all supporting materials is Wednesday, June 30, 2021. The committee will consider all nominations and reach a decision by Friday, July 9, 2021.


The primary criterion for a potential recipient of the IMIA François Grémy Award of Excellence is “an individual whose personal commitment and dedication to medical informatics has made a lasting contribution to medicine and healthcare through their achievements in research, education, development or application in the field of medical informatics.”

Nominations have no specific format, however, must include sufficient information and supporting details about the nominee to both demonstrate how they meet the primary criterion and allow their nomination to be judged against others. They should contain, at a minimum:

  • a one page summary of the nominee’s most important accomplishments/contributions;
  • a current CV, short bio and picture of nominee in jpg format; and
  • 2-3 letters of support from named referees, or nominator and seconders. Nominations should be sent to the IMIA Office via email:

The 2021 award recipient will be acknowledged during the 2021 IMIA GA virtual meeting in November and will provide a presentation at the Opening Session of MedInfo 2023 to be held in person in Sydney, Australia in July.
