Call for Papers

 

The EGOV-CeDEM-ePart 2019 represents the merge of the IFIP WG 8.5 Electronic Government (EGOV), the IFIP WG 8.5 IFIP Electronic Participation (ePart) and the Conference for E-Democracy and Open Government Conference (CeDEM). The conference is held annually, and will be hosted 2-4 September 2019 in San Benedetto del Tronto by the University of Camerino, Italy.

The conference focuses on e-Government, Open Government, eParticipation and e-Democracy, and related topics like social media, digital transformation in society, artificial intelligence, policy information, smart cities, and social innovation. Several types of submissions are possible including completed research, ongoing research, reflections & viewpoints, posters, and workshops. The conference organises a PhD Colloquium and offers a limited number of PhD bursaries. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches to the conference topics and a variety of research approaches (conceptual, case study, survey, mixed or other suitable methods).

The conference is organized by the IFIP 8.5 Working group in collaboration with the Digital Government Society (DGS). The aim of WG 8.5 is to improve the quality of e-government information systems at international, national, regional and local levels. The Working Group’s special emphasis lays on interdisciplinary approaches towards information systems in public administration. DGS is a global, multi-disciplinary organization of scholars and practitioners interested in the development and impacts of digital government.
