Summary and Theme
ICEGOV is a series of International Conferences on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance taking place annually around the world. The series focuses on the use of technology to transform the working of government and its relationships with citizens, businesses and other non-state actors in order to improve public governance and its contribution to public policy and development (EGOV).
ICEGOV2015 invites submissions of original work, not published or considered for publication elsewhere. The papers can be submitted to six specific tracks, three thematic sessions, and the doctoral colloquium. Except doctoral colloquium submissions, papers can also be submitted to the conference without specifying the track or session. Program Chairs reserve the right to allocate or reallocate papers to specific conference tracks or assign them to thematic sessions, created to highlight contributions to specialized or novel themes.

One of our favourite Tracks: CONTEXT-SPECIFIC ELECTRONIC GOVERNANCE AND POLICY COHERENCE
While adapting government digitization efforts to specific local or sectorial application contexts may deliver more targeted and effective responses to context-specific needs and circumstances, it also raises the risk of overlaps, inconsistencies and spillovers between context-specific approaches, undermining collective responses to higher-level public policy goals. This track focuses on the design and performance of Electronic Governance (EGOV) in specific local, sectorial or local-sectorial contexts including contextual features that enable or disable successful context-specific EGOV, interaction and cross-border collaboration between EGOV in “neighboring” contexts, EGOV context-adaptation and EGOV transfer between contexts, synergy and alignment between context-specific EGOV, coordination and negotiation between context-specific EGOV to fulfill common policy goals, EGOV design for context versus design for reuse, etc. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: o Local Electronic Governance o Local versus National Electronic Governance o Multi-level Electronic Governance o Sectorial Electronic Governance o Electronic Governance in the Education Sector o Electronic Governance in the Energy Sector o Electronic Governance in the Environment Sector o Electronic Governance in the Finance Sector o Electronic Governance in the Health Sector o Electronic Governance in the Justice Sector o Electronic Governance in the Security Sector o Electronic Governance in the Technology Sector o Sectorial versus Multi-Sectorial Electronic Governance o Local-sectorial Electronic Governance o EGOV Design for Context versus EGOV Design for Reuse o Enabling versus Disabling EGOV Contextual Features o Electronic Governance Context Adaptation o Electronic Governance Context-to-Context Transfer o EGOV for Aligning National Strategies with Local Needs o EGOV for Sustainable Development o EGOV and Cross-Sectorial Policy Requirements o EGOV and Local and Sectorial Impact Evaluation o Policy Coherence for Development o EGOV and Post-2015 UN Development Agenda Chairs: Tomasz Janowski, Peter Parycek, Delfina Sá Soares
