LiUs Anders Ynnerman is named IT Personality of the Year
The Guldmusen Award, which is presented by the information technology industry, was set up in 1996 and is now Sweden's most prestigious award in this area. Annual nominations are made in four categories, all honoring Swedish performance: IT product, IT business, IT promoter, and IT personality.
The latter prize went this year to Anders Ynnerman, professor in scientific visualization at LiUs Campus Norrköping with the following recognition: Together with his research team, Professor Ynnerman has raised the ceiling for IT applications and developed a world-class technique which will serve such disparate fields as surgery, astronomy, gaming development, and film production.
The IT Promoter of the Year was another well-known scholar with ties to Linköping University, namely Professor Anders Flodström, LiU alumnus and former LiU rector.
The award is sponsored by the business journals
Affärsvärlden and Computer Sweden.
