CeDEM Asia, Keynotes, Day 1 (Daegu)

The 3rd CeDEM Asia started on the 7th of December in Daegu (South Korea). CeDEM brings together researchers, practitioneers and activists from many contexts in the region. President Faulhammer welcomed the participants and mentioned Korea as one of the leading industries in information technologies as well as the dedicated open access policy of CeDEM. Since the beginning of the conference series, emphasis was on the paradigm shifts due to ICTs and the development of civic involvement in society, and the creation of a network of tolerance, innovative spirit and innovation. The Centre for E-Governance has come to stand to a leading research group with many international cooperations and projects, and CeDEM Asia is an important part for the engagement of Danube University in the Asien region. Prof. Parycek emphasised that CeDEM Asia has a focus on communication and networks. Prof. Skoric mentioned the national context of the conference series and invited people to suggest cities for the next one. So if you are in Asia and want to host CeDEM 2018, do get in touch!

CFP: Conference for E-Democracy and Open Government 2013

Call for Papers

Transparency and access to information, new ways of interacting with government and democratic institutions, and Internet-based, decentralized grassroots activism have caused profound changes to the way states are run and society expected to function. Social media and new dimensions of online social activity, including individual and collective content generation, collaboration and sharing as well as the emergence of spontaneous multilevel networks change our understanding of how to run countries and companies. Services provided by public and private organisations have increased citizens’ independence and flexibility, but at the same time allow for more control. Now we have reached the point where we need to look at what the ideas, promises and suggestions have brought and why some projects have failed to reach the aims. Have aims and expectations been set too high? Or is the question how we define success (and failure)? Has the role of technology been overemphasised?

These are some of the questions and topics we would like to discuss at the 2013 Conference. CeDEM13 critically analyses present and future developments in e-democracy and open government.
