IFIP e-Government Conference (EGOV) 2010
29 August -- 2 September 2010; Lausanne, Switzerland
(co-organised with ePart 2010)

Call for Papers

The Europe-based Annual International IFIP e-government conference is  one
of three core conferences, which present the state of the art in the
study domains of eGovernment and eGovernance. Over the years, through  the
organisation of its Europe-based conferences, the EGOV community has
provided important guidance for research and development in this
fast-moving domain of study. The different conferences thereby play an
important role. This time for the first time, the conference will be a
full IFIP working conference organised by the IFIP working group 8.5
(pending IFIP approval).

The IFIP e-government conference b rings 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 2009 EGOV conference - within the DEXA
conference cluster - has attracted more than 130 participants from 32
countries including developing countries, with 35 contributions in
completed research, 25 contributions in ongoing research, 7 projects
contributions and 3 workshops.
eGovernment research has demonstrated its relevance to practice and
consequently has influenced and even shaped government strategies and
implementations. Conversely, eGovernment practice has inspired
eGovernment research. A wide range of topics has received scholarly
attention. In recent years, the assessment and evaluation of eGovernment
projects, the foundations of eGovernment as a research discipline,
integration and interoperation in government, and the role of
information and communication technology for developme nt rank among
leading topics on the research agenda.

Topics at the IFIP e-government conference 2010 include but are not
limited to:

* Foundations of eGovernment and eGovernance 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
* Innovation management, change management and complexity management in
shaping public sector advancements
* Benefits management in the context of eGovernment
* Mass collaboration of stakeholders in government modernization:
participative governance and policy modelling
* Stakeholder-driven public sector reengineering
* Mobile services and methods in government
* Cloud computing and social networks in the public sector
* Information preservation, information management, and information access
* Trust and privacy in eGovernment
* Open source in eGovernment
* Emergency and disaster response management
* Retaining public sector experiences
* Education, training courses, and curricula

The IFIP e-government conference 2010 hosts four distinct formats of

* Completed research papers (max 12 pages, published in Springer LNCS) *
Ongoing research and innovative projects (max 8 pages, published in
* Workshops and panels on pertinent issues
* PhD colloquium submission.

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 eGovernment or
eGovernance projects, as well as reports on systems implementation.  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
We seek innovative and scholarly sound contributions. Accepted papers of
completed research will be published in Springer LNCS. Ongoing research
and project papers will be published in Trauner proceedings. Read more  in
the submission guidelines and review criteria

The IFI P e-government conference will be co-located with ePart, the new
International Conference on eParticipation, which will be dedicated to
topics on eParticipation and eDemocracy. ePart will take place in
parallel to the IFIP e-government conference at the same venue.
