The Hall of Fame very much recognises the personal efforts of the inductees, honouring their endeavours, dedication, and outstanding contributions to Australia's and the world's ICT industry and research.
Nominations can be received at any time.
The National Awards Process details the criteria and procedures used in the judging evaluation.
