For more information, see the original announcement below.
Paper submissions are now being accepted for the 7th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV2013) to be held in Seoul, Republic of Korea from 22–25 October 2013. The conference is being organized by the National Information Society Agency, Republic of Korea, and the Center for Electronic Governance at the United Nations University International Institute for Software Technology.
With the 2015 deadline for the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) less than two years away, and an ongoing discussion regarding the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the objective of ICEGOV2013 is to bring electronic governance to the mainstream post-2015 discussion. ICEGOV2013 will take place under the theme “Beyond 2015 – Smart Governance, Smart Development”.
ICEGOV2013 is accepting submissions of original work, neither published nor considered for publication elsewhere, that contribute to this theme. Like previous ICEGOV conferences, papers should focus on the use of Information and Communication Technology to transform the work of governments and their relationships with citizens, businesses and other non-state actors. Of interest is how to design, implement, operate and sustain this transformation to achieve not only “better government” but “smart governance”.
ICEGOV2013 particularly seeks submissions that address not only the “mechanics” of this transformation, but also the “value”; how, through “smart governance”, government organizations can partner with citizens, businesses and other non-state actors to pursue “smart development” and to advance post-2015 public policies.
Completed or ongoing work can be submitted as research, experience or poster papers on one of seven topics:
