As governments seek to remodel and restyle their services, e-Government continues to stir interest and attention. New dynamic issues such as e-democracy, e-citizenship, interoperability, e-identity and e-voting have become core elements in the development of public sector delivery. The multi-tier nature of e-Government, relevant at local, regional, and central government but also at the supranational level such as the European Union, makes it of importance to academics and practitioners alike. Vital questions are posed which link technological development and a streamlining of government services to more social based values of inclusion, accessibility and power relationship ratios.
Academic research, case studies and work-in-progress/posters are welcomed approaches. PhD Research, proposals for roundtable discussions or knowledge cafés, non-academic contributions and product demonstrations based on the main themes are also invited. Papers presented at the conference will be published in the conference proceedings, subject to author registration and payment. Selected papers presented at the Conference will be considered for publication in a special issue of the Electronic Journal of e-Government.
