Best paper awards honoring Mario Stefanelli and Marco Ramoni: to commemorate two outstanding researchers in our field who recently passed away, AIME will establish two awards. Mario Stefanelli from the University of Pavia has been one of the founders of the AIME community, an inspiration to us all, and actively helped in advancing young researchers in our field. The best student paper will receive an award honoring Mario Stefanelli and his accomplishments. Marco Ramoni has been an outstandingly respected faculty member at Harvard and advanced the biomedical informatics field. The best paper in bioinformatics will receive an award honoring Marco Ramoni and his accomplishments.
