The conference will bring together practitioners, developers and researchers from government, academia, industry and non-governmental organizations to share the latest findings in the theory and practice of Electronic Governance.

The ICEGOV2010 Program Committee invites submissions of unpublished, original work – completed or ongoing – in the form of papers, case studies, demonstrations and posters:

  1. Papers – Describing mature work in one or more of the research, practice or solution aspects of Electronic Governance, with proven or potential capacity to advance the state-of-the-art in the field.
  2. Case Studies – Analyzing Electronic Governance initiatives, whether research, practice or solutions, to identify critical factors contributing to their success or failure.
  3. Demonstrations – Demonstrating how solutions, possibly obtained through research, are being applied in the practice of Electronic Governance, consequently giving rise to new research.
  4. Posters – Presenting new ideas and ongoing work related to research, practice or solutions for Electronic Governance, with proven or potential capacity for bridging two or more dimensions.

The contributions can originate from: (1) Government – experiences, case studies and lessons learnt while planning, developing, executing and evaluating Electronic Governance initiatives; (2) Academia – foundations of Electronic Governance, including development, validation and implementation of relevant theories, models and specifications; or (3) Industry and NGOs – technologies, methods and tools upon which Electronic Governance solutions – systems, processes, services and organizations – can be built.

ICEGOV2010 particularly welcomes: (a) cross-sector contributions that aim to establish connections between research, solutions and practice of Electronic Governance, and succeed in effectively communicating their findings from researchers to solution providers, from solution providers to public managers, from public managers to researchers; (b) contributions that cross the borders of the relevant disciplines – Information Technology, Computing, Public Administration and Policy, Political Science, Information Science, Linguistics, Law, Economics, Sociology, Business Administration and others; and (c) contributions on one or more of the practice, solutions or research aspects of Electronic Governance.
