EGOV-CeDEM-ePart 2018 represents the merge of the IFIP WG 8.5 Electronic Government (EGOV), the IFIP WG 8.5 IFIP Electronic Participation (ePart) and the Conference for E-Democracy and Open Government Conference (CeDEM). The conference is held annually, and will be hosted 3-5 September 2018 at the Danube University Krems in Austria.
The 2018 edition of the EGOV-CeDEM-EPART 2018 Conference, representing the merger of the IFIP EGOV-EPART with the CeDEM conference as well as the annual conference of IFIP Working Group 8.5., continues to host multiple topical tracks. Two general tracks will maintain the tradition of EGOV and EPART. Additional special-topics tracks expand the reach and scope of the EGOV-CeDEM-EPART 2018 Conference:
- The General E-Government & Open Government Track serves as an umbrella for all e-government-related topics except the special-topics tracks. In particular, it also covers emerging and special topics in e-government research.
- The General E-Democracy & eParticipation Track serves as an umbrella for all eParticipation-related topics except the special-topic tracks. This track aims to present the best of recent developments in electronic participation and electronic democracy as they cover a wide range of technical, political and social areas.
- The Smart Governance (Government, Cities & Regions) Track focuses on all aspects of smart governance, including frameworks, policies, and the use of technology.
- The AI, Data Analytics, & Automated Decision Making Track welcomes research examining the potential, adoption, use, and impacts of various data analytics methods ranging from visualisations and descriptive statistical analyses to machine learning and AI methods in the public sector.
- The Digital Collaboration and Social Media Track
- The Policy Modeling and Policy Informatics Track focuses on supporting public policy-making with innovative ICTs involving relevant stakeholders. The scope ranges from policy analysis and conceptual modeling to programming and visualization of simulation models.
- The Social Innovation Track focuses on the intersection between research, practice, and policy related to social innovation.
- The Open Data, Linked Data & Semantic Web Track focuses on open government data, public big data sharing and use, data for improving public value and data analytics capitalizing mainly on Linked Open Data and other Semantic Web Technologies.
- The Practitioners’ Track, designed for those working in the field.
Despite some intentional overlap, the above tracks cover and emphasize distinct areas of research and appeal to specific and important sub-communities within the scholarly community. Therefore the tracks have their separate and detailed call for papers.
