The IMIA Board has agreed to the formation of the IMIA Open Source Working Group (OSWG) Annual Achievement Award. The Award will be "given to a person, group or organisation that has, in the view of the Award Committee, demonstrated commitment to, and a track record of, active involvement and achievement in the promotion of free/libre and open source software in the health informatics domain. The award may be given for significant achievement within the preceding year, or as a 'long service' award for contribution over a significant period of time."

It is anticipated that the Inaugural Award (2006) will be made at the AMIA2006 conference - more new later. 

In addition, the IMIA Board has approved the proposal that the IMIA OSWG co-sponsor the Annual Linux Medical News Award - see
