    The 9th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV2016) will take place in Montevideo, Uruguay from 1-3 March 2016.

    Organisers

    The conference is being organised under the High Patronage of the Presidency of the Eastern Republic of Uruguay by the Agency for Electronic Government and Information Society and the United Nations University Operating Unit on Policy-Driven Electronic Governance — the founder and coordinator of the ICEGOV series.

    Theme

    Inclusive and sustainable human development are at the centre of the United Nations post-2015 development agenda, as are the calls for stronger governance to enable: 1) transparent and accountable institutions that are responsive to the needs of people, and 2) meaningful participation of individuals and strong collaboration between the government and the governed in governance processes to tackle inequalities and promote social inclusion. Taking place under the theme “Transparent and Accountable Governance for Post 2015 Development — Towards Engagement and Collaboration”, the main purpose of ICEGOV2016 is to explore how digital technology can advance such calls and to discuss related research and policy implications.

    Call for Papers

    ICEGOV2016 invites submissions of original work, not published or considered for publication elsewhere, including research papers, experience papers, posters, doctoral research papers and tutorials. The first submission deadline is 23 November 2015. For full details visit the Call for Papers page on the ICEGOV2016 website.

    Programme

    ICEGOV2016 will feature four concurrent streams designed for knowledge sharing, networking and collaborative deliberation. The programme will comprise six tracks:

    1. Open Data for Development
    2. Citizen Empowerment and Inclusion
    3. Ethics, Accountability, Transparency and Values
    4. Context-Specific Electronic Governance and Policy Coherence
    5. Social Innovation and Transformation
    6. Institutional Effectiveness and Responsiveness

    Three thematic sessions on pre-defined topics will be also part of the programme:

    1. Intelligent Information Systems for Government
    2. EGOV and the Tourism Sector
    3. EGOV for Security and Urban Resilience

    There will also be three other thematic sessions on topics emerging from submitted papers, a poster exhibition, and a doctoral colloquium. The programme will include keynote lectures, plenary discussions, tutorials, invited sessions, and an industrial exhibition, all organised by leading international experts, practitioners and influential institutional actors in the field. The PhD Colloquium and the tutorials will take place a day before the conference, on 2 November 2015.
