Frank Land, emeritus professor in the Department of Information Systems at LSE, has been jointly awarded the 2003 Association for Information Systems' LEO Award with Dr Jack F Rockart of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The award for lifetime exceptional achievement recognises seminal contributions to research, theory development, and practice in Information Systems.
Frank Land has been involved with information systems for almost the whole of his adult life, originally as a member of the small team of people working in the early 1950s with LEO Computers in the UK to develop business computing, and since 1967 as an academic with LSE and the London Business School helping to establish information systems and information management as an academic discipline. Frank retired from full time academic work in 1992.
The LEO Award, established in 1999 by the Association for Information Systems and the International Conference on Information Systems, honours outstanding individuals who have contributed to the information systems community.
