Call for Papers
Conference for e-democracy, e-participation and e-voting
5-6 May 2011
Danube University Krems
During the last 10 years, the world has focused on social media and the
new forms of societal behaviour, including content generation,
collaboration and sharing as well as network organisation. These
behaviours and expectations, in particular transparency and access to
data, new ways of interacting with government and democratic
institutions will continue to develop, and profound changes in society
are to be expected. Society has been confronted with *Open
Government*, *Open Data* and *Open Access*. What have the
experiences been so far? How do these impact society, democratic
structures and organisations? What changes occur at citizen level? What
are the implications for democracy, society, science and business?
