The Conference on Electronic Governance and Open Society: Challenges in Eurasia (EGOSE 2015) will be conducted by the ITMO University in St. Petersburg, Russian Federation on November 24 – 25, 2015 under the patronage of the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation.
EGOSE 2014 was the first international academic event in the field of Electronic Governance in the vast Eurasian region comprising mainly the post-Soviet states. The Conference was held during 18 – 20 November 2014 in St Petersburg, Russia, and was designed to focus on the current and emerging challenges these countries are facing in developing sound and effective e-Governance solutions that promote public sector innovations both in terms of administrative efficiency and governance openness.
Another important objective was to seek other regions’ experiences to compare approaches, solutions, practices. Accepted papers have been published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series.
The EGOSE 2015 aims to address the main issues of concern within the Information Society, e-government, e-governance, and e-democracy. The Conference provides a platform for networking and collaboration of eGovernance experts in the Eurasian area.
