The MIT Sloan CIO Symposium has put out the call for nominees for its annual leadership award, which recognises innovative use of technology for delivering strong business results.

Award recipients will be honoured at a dinner at the symposium on May 21 in Cambridge, Mass.

Nominees must have the title of CIO or chief medical information officer at a for-profit organisation. Judging criteria will include nominees' communications skills, management skills, business acumen and track record of working with others within an organization. Past winners have hailed from outfits such as State Street, JCPenney and the U.S. General Services Administration.

The deadline for submissions is March 31 and the online nomination form can be found here. Please contact [email protected] with any questions about the process.
