IFIP EGOV 2011 - The 10th annual international IFIP e-government conference



VenueDelft, Netherlands, The Netherlands, The



Topics/Call fo Papers

The 10th annual international IFIP e-government conference is the European core conference in the study domain, which presents the state of the art in e-government and e-governance. Since its beginnings in 2001, the EGOV conference has provided important guidance for research and development in this fast-moving domain of study. IFIP’s EGOV conference has grown to one of the top three conferences in the domain besides the HICSS e-government track and the Digital Government Society’s dg.o conference in North America. In 2010, EGOV became a full IFIP conference organised by the IFIP Working Group 8.5 on information systems in the public sector.

The IFIP e-government conference brings together leading researchers and professionals from across the globe and from a number of disciplines. Over the years, the interest in this domain of study has steadily increased. The 2010 IFIP EGOV and ePart conferences have attracted more than 150 participants from all continents including developing countries. IFIP EGOV has accepted 36 contributions in completed research, 31 contributions in ongoing research, 3 panels and 3 workshops. Also, the second editor-in-chief roundtable with representatives of five key journals in the field was held. For further details see the conference site of IFIP EGOV 2010.

E-government research has demonstrated its relevance to practice and consequently has influenced and shaped government strategies and implementations. Conversely, e-government practice has inspired e-government research. A wide range of topics has received scholarly attention. In recent years, the assessment and evaluation of e-government projects, the foundations of e-government as a research discipline, integration and interoperation in government, transformation, organizational change, citizens at the center, adoption and diffusion, and the role of information and communication technology for development rank among leading topics on the research agenda.

For the IFIP e-government conference 2011 we seek contributions that include but are not limited to:

Foundations of e-government and e-governance research
Future directions in research and practice of ICT in the public sector
Research theories and frameworks for public sector modernization with the support of ICT
Research methods, method integration and techniques
Designing and assessing systems for the public sector: innovative cases and systems
ICT usage, acceptance and performance of technology-supported public sector activities: methods and contemporary case analyses
Open government, transparency, and collaboration
Open innovation, innovation management, transformation and change management, and complexity management in shaping public sector advancements
Crowdsourcing in government

Legal compliance, legal shaping and legal impact of innovative government services provision
Mobile services and methods in government
Cloud computing and social networks in the public sector
Information Infrastructure, Information preservation, information management, and information access
Trust and privacy in e-government
Open source and free software
Interoperability, architectures and standards in networked government
Knowledge management, information sharing, semantics, and ontologies
Emergency and disaster response managementli>
Retaining public sector experiences
Education, human resources, training courses, and curricula
The IFIP e-government conference 2011 hosts four distinct formats of contributions:
Completed research papers (max 12 pages, published in LCNS Springer (tbc))
Ongoing research and innovative projects (max 8 pages, published in Trauner (tbc))
Workshops and panels on pertinent issues
These formats encourage scientific rigor and discussions of state of the art in the study domain, but also welcome innovative research approaches, work in progress, and studies of practical e-government or e-governance projects along with reports on system implementations. Prior to the conference (Monday August 29), a PhD student colloquium will be held providing doctoral students with an international forum guided by senior scholars for presenting their work, networking opportunities and cross-disciplinary inspiration.
We seek innovative and scholarly sound contributions. Accepted papers of completed research and project papers will be published in Trauner proceedings.

Prior to the conference (August 29 and 30) a PhD student colloquium will be held providing doctoral students with an international forum for presenting their work, networking opportunities and cross-disciplinary inspiration.
The IFIP e-government conference will be co-located with ePart, the third International Conference on electronic participation (ePart), which will be dedicated to topics on e-participation and e-democracy. ePart will take place slightly overlapping with the IFIP e-government conference at the same venue. Participants registering for one conference can also attend the other conference.
