17th European Conference on Digital Government (ECDG) 2017 Lisbon

  • Conference Call
  • The Euro­pean Con­fer­ence on e-​Government has been run­ning now for 16 years. This event has been held in Italy, Ire­land, Bel­gium, UK, Slove­nia, to men­tion a few of the coun­tries who have hosted it. This year we are refo­cus­ing the con­fer­ence to look more broadly at the area of Dig­i­tal Gov­ern­ment. The con­fer­ence is gen­er­ally attended by par­tic­i­pants from more than 40 coun­tries and attracts an inter­est­ing com­bi­na­tion of aca­d­e­mic schol­ars, pub­lic sec­tor work­ers and indi­vid­u­als who are engaged in var­i­ous aspects of Dig­i­tal Gov­ern­ment research and appli­ca­tion.

    17th Euro­pean Con­fer­ence on Dig­i­tal Gov­ern­ment (ECDG) 2017 is being hosted by the Por­tuguese Mil­i­tary Acad­emy (Lis­bon), and is being held at the Mil­i­tary Acad­emy Quar­ters in Amadora City near Lis­bon, Por­tu­gal on June 1516, 2017.

    The con­fer­ence will also host the finals of the Dig­i­tal Gov­ern­ment Excel­lence Awards.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    As gov­ern­ments seek to remodel and restyle their ser­vices, Dig­i­tal Gov­ern­ment is play­ing an increas­ingly cen­tral role. Issues such as Dig­i­tal Democ­racy, the Dig­i­tal Cit­i­zen, inter­op­er­abil­ity, e-​identity and e-​voting have become core ele­ments in the devel­op­ment of pub­lic sec­tor deliv­ery. These issues together with the impor­tance placed on Joined-​up Gov­ern­ment and Open Gov­ern­ment are rel­e­vant at local, regional and cen­tral gov­ern­ment, as well as at the supra­na­tional level such as the Euro­pean Union.

    Dig­i­tal 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 and Dig­i­tal Gov­ern­ment is also tightly related to legal, eco­nom­i­cal and organ­i­sa­tional fields and as such holds a strong inter­dis­ci­pli­nary sta­tus. We wel­come con­tri­bu­tions on any aspect of dig­i­tal gov­ern­ment research – both empir­i­cal and practical.

    Key Topics

    • Appli­ca­tions of e-​Government
    • Chal­lenges to Dig­i­tal Government

    Dr Jolien Ubacht is Assis­tant Pro­fes­sor in Insti­tu­tional Aspects of ICT at the Fac­ulty of Tech­nol­ogy, Pol­icy and Man­age­ment of Delft Uni­ver­sity of Tech­nol­ogy, the Nether­lands. Her research focus is the design of gov­er­nance arrange­ments for com­plex adap­tive sys­tems in the infor­ma­tion soci­ety. The core of her research is on the soci­etal con­se­quences of inno­va­tion based on tech­no­log­i­cal devel­op­ments in ICT, such as peer to peer plat­forms, open and big data, blockchain tech­nol­ogy, Inter­net of Things. Tak­ing a com­plex adap­tive sys­tems approach, Jolien Ubacht explores the design of gov­er­nance arrange­ments to address soci­etal issues such as pri­vacy and security.

    Danilo Piag­gesi is a rec­og­nized global devel­op­ment man­ager with exper­tise in busi­ness, inter­na­tional devel­op­ment and non-​for-​profit sec­tors, focused on achiev­ing faster and more inclu­sive eco­nomic growth, with 30 years of expe­ri­ence man­ag­ing large devel­op­ment projects, impact invest­ments, fundrais­ing and tech­ni­cal coop­er­a­tion funds to pro­mote ICT and inno­va­tion in sup­port of poverty reduc­tion, edu­ca­tion and social inclu­sion. He has a strong inter­na­tional back­ground, hav­ing lived and worked in the field in Latin Amer­ica and the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Europe and the USA.

    Dr Ahmed Imran is an Infor­ma­tion Sys­tem researcher with spe­cial inter­est on Strate­gic use of IT, eGov­ern­ment, IT for development/​devel­op­ing coun­tries (ICT4D), socio-​cultural and orga­ni­za­tional trans­for­ma­tion impacted by ICT. Ahmed had a ver­sa­tile and chal­leng­ing career before his tran­si­tion to acad­e­mia. His past expe­ri­ence is invalu­able for research in under­stand­ing and pro­vid­ing rich insight of the con­text, which is crit­i­cal to design appro­pri­ate infor­ma­tion sys­tems for devel­op­ing courtiers. Ahmed has pub­lished widely includ­ing the recent text­book on eGov­ern­ment Man­age­ment for Devel­op­ing Coun­tries as the lead author (with Gre­gor & Turner). Ahmed is a Senior Lec­turer at UNSW Can­berra, Australia.

    Alfredo Ter­zoli is the Head of the Telkom Cen­tre of Excel­lence in Dis­trib­uted Mul­ti­me­dia at Rhodes Uni­ver­sity and the Research Direc­tor of the Telkom Cen­tre of Excel­lence in ICT for Devel­op­ment at the Uni­ver­sity of Fort Hare. His main research inter­ests are in Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions Con­ver­gence and the use of ICT for Devel­op­ment. He has started and over­sees the Siyakhula Liv­ing Lab, a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary, long term ini­tia­tive to bring mean­ing­ful and sus­tain­able ICTs to poor and mar­gin­al­ized areas. The Siyakhula Liv­ing Lab is cur­rently explor­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of dig­i­tal gov­ern­ment ser­vices to sup­port the dif­fu­sion of ICT in poor and mar­gin­al­ized areas.
