International Conference for E-Democracy and Open Government 2013 (Cedem13)
From 22/05/2013 to 25/05/2013
This second European edition of the international Conference for e-Democracy and Open Government, Cedem will bring together e-democracy, e-participation and open government specialists from academia, politics, government and business, announces the Danube University Krems, the conference organiser. "They will analyse the innovations, issues, ideas and challenges in the networked societies of the digital age."
"Cedem13 will focus on e-democracy and open government in the context of human rights and freedom in a digital society."
There are nine conference tracks in total, together covering the broad range of e-democracy and e-government. One track, for example, titled 'E-Democracy and E-Participation' looks at the sustainability of e-participation and citizen engagement. The track will also consider ICT solutions for e-participation and the interaction between government, enterprises and citizens. Another example is the track titled 'Open Collaborative Government and E-Policies'. It will cover new models for government that include modern smart and mobile technologies.
The organising Centre for E-Governance at the Danube University Krems, has held conferences on e-democracy and public administration since 2007. The CeDEM was first held in Krems in 2011. In November last year, the organisers took their conference to Singapore, calling it Cedem Asia, the International Conference on e-Democracy andOpen Government-Asia.
Cedem 2013 will take place on the Campus of Danube University Krems in the town of Krems.
