The 9th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV2016) will take place in Montevideo, Uruguay, between 1 -3 March 2016.
The conference is held under the high patronage of the Presidency of the Eastern Republic of Uruguay and is organized by the Agency for Electronic Government and Information Society (AGESIC) and the United Nations University Operating Unit on Policy-Driven Electronic Governance (UNU-EGOV) – the founder and coordinator of the ICEGOV series. Previous ICEGOV conferences took place in Macau (2007), Cairo (2008), Bogotá (2009), Beijing (2010), Tallinn (2011), Albany (2012), Seoul (2013), and Guimarães (2014).
Inclusive and sustainable human development are at the center of the emerging 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.
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 submission deadline is 23 November 2015 and acceptance notifications will be issued by 21 December 2015. As in previous ICEGOV conferences, all accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by ACM Press, while selected papers will be invited for submission to the special issue of Government Information Quarterly published by Elsevier. The best paper and best reviewer awards will be announced at the conference. More details are available in the Call for Papers.
ICEGOV2016 will feature a rich programme with four concurrent streams designed for knowledge sharing, networking and collaborative deliberation. The program will comprise six tracks:
Three thematic sessions on pre-defined topics will be also part of the program:
Together with these, there will be three other thematic sessions on topics emerging from submitted papers, a poster exhibition, and a doctoral colloquium. The program will also include keynote lectures, plenary discussions, invited sessions, and an industrial exhibition, all organized by leading international experts, practitioners and influential institutional actors in the field. The PhD Colloquium will take place a day before the conference, on 29 February 2016.
