16th European Conference on eGovernment (ECEG) 2016 Ljubljana

  • Conference Call
  • On behalf of the orga­niz­ers we are very pleased to invite you to par­tic­i­pate at the 16th Euro­pean Con­fer­ence on e-​Government (ECEG) 2016 in Ljubl­jana, Slove­nia on June 1617, 2016.

    This will be the sec­ond time that Ljubl­jana hosts researchers and prac­ti­tion­ers in e-​government from all over the world. Although E-​government has passed its infant years there is still some “grow­ing up to do”. In the advance­ment of tech­nol­ogy todays e-​government has to deal with clouds, big data, open data, dig­i­tal work­space, mobile envi­ron­ments, sus­tain­abil­ity and more. E-​government is an essen­tial ele­ment of pub­lic admin­is­tra­tion that wants to per­form its tasks effi­ciently, effec­tively, trans­par­ently focus­ing on pub­lic good and stake­hold­ers’ inclusion.

    The ECEG 2016 hopes to bring together researchers and prac­ti­tion­ers for stim­u­lat­ing dis­cus­sion, net­work­ing and dis­sem­i­na­tion of cur­rent think­ing in e-​government activity.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    As gov­ern­ments seek to remodel and restyle their ser­vices, e-​Government con­tin­ues to stir inter­est and atten­tion. New dynamic issues such as e-​democracy, e-​citizenship, inter­op­er­abil­ity, e-​identity and e-​voting have become core ele­ments in the devel­op­ment of pub­lic sec­tor deliv­ery. The multi-​tier nature of e-​Government, rel­e­vant at local, regional, and cen­tral gov­ern­ment but also at the supra­na­tional level such as the Euro­pean Union, makes it of impor­tance to aca­d­e­mics and prac­ti­tion­ers alike. Vital ques­tions are posed which link tech­no­log­i­cal devel­op­ment and a stream­lin­ing of gov­ern­ment ser­vices to more social based val­ues of inclu­sion, acces­si­bil­ity and power rela­tion­ship ratios.

    e-​Government encom­passes more than just tech­nol­ogy – it chal­lenges the way in which pub­lic sec­tor ser­vice providers and cit­i­zens inter­act. Demo­c­ra­tic renewal, the trans­for­ma­tion of ser­vice deliv­ery, com­mu­nity lead­er­ship and cit­i­zen­ship inte­gra­tion are all key ele­ments of this fas­ci­nat­ing sub­ject. e-​Government is tightly related to legal, eco­nom­i­cal and organ­i­sa­tional fields and as such holds a strong inter­dis­ci­pli­nary sta­tus.
