Date2015-11-03 - 2015-11-05


VenueTunis, Tunisia Tunisia



Topics/Call fo Papers

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. The main purpose of ICEGOV2015 is to explore how digital technology can advance such calls and discuss related research and policy implications.
The series of International Conferences on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV) brings together governments, academia, the United Nations (UN) system and other international organizations, civil society and the private sector to share the insights and experiences in theory and practice of Electronic Governance. ICEGOV promotes interactions between different groups of stakeholders, from policy-makers, government officials and elected representatives, to researchers, innovators and educators from developing and developed countries, all sharing a common concern that public investment in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Electronic Governance (EGOV) creates public value. ICEGOV creates a forum for such stakeholders to discuss effective ways to working together across the national, thematic, development, political and other boarders towards addressing this concern.
Following earlier conferences in Macau (ICEGOV2007), Cairo (ICEGOV2008), Bogotá (ICEGOV2009), Beijing (ICEGOV2010), Tallinn (ICEGOV2011), Albany (ICEGOV2012), Seoul (ICEGOV2013), and Guimarães (ICEGOV2014), the ICEGOV conference series has become a source of significant research and policy events, able to reach to global and multi-stakeholder audiences. On average, every ICEGOV conference attracts 140 submissions from 49 countries and is attended by over 400 participants from more than 50 developed and developing countries, including representatives from government (40%), academia (36%), industry and civil society (14%), and international and UN system organizations (10%).
ICEGOV2015 invites submissions of original work, not published or considered for publication elsewhere. The papers can be submitted to six specific tracks, three thematic sessions, and the doctoral colloquium. Except doctoral colloquium submissions, papers can also be submitted to the conference without specifying the track or session. Program Chairs reserve the right to allocate or reallocate papers to specific conference tracks or assign them to thematic sessions, created to highlight contributions to specialized or novel themes.
