The 2004 Australian Museum Eureka Prizes have been announced. One of the
prize categories is " Australian Computer Society Eureka Prize for ICT
have copied the main text from the web site below.
I consider that the Linux Conference Australia (LCA) would be a worthy
entry for the prize to be awarded to LA.
The key phrases that I feel apply to LCA (from the judging criteria)
are: "significant contribution to furthering the study, science and
application of information and communications technology" and "projects
may cover one or more aspects of research, design, development or
implementation". I would say LCA covers all of them :)
What do you think? Is it worth pursuing?
All the best

The Australian Computer Society Eureka Prize for Information and
Communications Technology Innovation is sponsored by the Australian
Computer Society. The prize is awarded to an individual, team or
organisation for outstanding innovation in the research, design,
development or implementation of projects related to the Information and
Communications Technology (ICT) industry.
The project must have been undertaken in Australia by Australian
residents and completed within the past 5 years.
The mission of the Australian Computer Society (ACS) is "Advancing
professional excellence in Information Technology". The Australian
Computer Society Eureka Prize aims to promote excellence in ICT
innovation, and the winning entry should make a significant contribution
to furthering the study, science and application of information and
communications technology. Nominated projects may cover one or more
aspects of research, design, development or implementation.
Judges will consider the following questions in assessing entries. Where
relevant, entrants should specifically address these issues in their
o Why and how was the project conceived?
o To what extent is the project novel?
o Has the project developed or extended existing techniques or methods?
o In what ways will the completed project affect the subsequent
study, science and application of information and communications technology?
o What are the technical implications of the project?
o What are the broader (industry and/or community, social and/or
economic) implications of the project?
