IFIP 8.5 EGOV-EPART 2017 Conference Russia

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Fed­er­a­tion for Infor­ma­tion Pro­cess­ing, Work­ing Group 8.5 will be hold­ing its 2017 IFIP EGOV-​EPART Con­fer­ence on Sep­tem­ber 47, 2017 in St. Peter­burg, Rus­sia at the St. Peters­burg State Uni­ver­sity of Infor­ma­tion Tech­nolo­gies, Mechan­ics and Optics (ITMO Uni­ver­sity).


    The 2017 edi­tion of the IFIP EGOV-​EPART con­fer­ence, the annual con­fer­ence of IFIP Work­ing Group 8.5, con­tin­ues to host five top­i­cal tracks. Two gen­eral tracks will main­tain the tra­di­tion of EGOV and EPART.

    Three special-​topics tracks expand the reach and scope of the IFIP WG 8.5 annual conference:

    • The Gen­eral E-​Government Track serves as an umbrella for all e-​government-​related top­ics except the special-​topics tracks. In par­tic­u­lar, it also cov­ers emerg­ing and spe­cial top­ics in e-​government research.
    • The Gen­eral ePar­tic­i­pa­tion Track serves as an umbrella for all eParticipation-​related top­ics except the special-​topic tracks. It focuses on research top­ics regard­ing cit­i­zen engage­ment in pub­lic affairs, and, in par­tic­u­lar, on research that stud­ies par­tic­i­pa­tion facil­i­tated by infor­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion technologies.
    • The Open Gov­ern­ment & Open and Big Data Track focuses on prac­tices and meth­ods of trans­parency, account­abil­ity, pub­lic big data shar­ing, data for improv­ing pub­lic value, and data analytics.
    • The Pol­icy Mod­el­ing and Pol­icy Infor­mat­ics Track focuses on sup­port­ing pub­lic policy-​making with inno­v­a­tive ICT involv­ing rel­e­vant stake­hold­ers. The scope ranges from pol­icy analy­sis and con­cep­tual mod­el­ing to pro­gram­ming and visu­al­iza­tion of sim­u­la­tion models.
    • The Smart Gov­er­nance, Smart Gov­ern­ment, Smart Cities & Smart Regions Track focuses on the orches­trated inter­play and bal­ance of smart gov­er­nance prac­tices, smart pub­lic admin­is­tra­tion, smart resource and tal­ent lever­age in urban and regional spaces facil­i­tated by novel uses of ICTs and other tech­nolo­gies, in par­tic­u­lar the Inter­net of Things.

    Despite some inten­tional over­lap, the five tracks cover and empha­size dis­tinct areas of research and appeal to spe­cific and impor­tant sub-​communities within the over­all IFIP WG 8.5 schol­arly com­mu­nity. There­fore the tracks have their sep­a­rate and detailed call for papers.


    Prior to the con­fer­ence, a PhD stu­dent col­lo­quium will be held pro­vid­ing an inter­na­tional forum for doc­toral stu­dents under the guid­ance of senior schol­ars for pre­sent­ing their work, net­work­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties and cross-​disciplinary inspi­ra­tion. Papers of accepted sub­mis­sions will be included in the proceedings.

    Out­stand­ing Paper Awards

    Award Categories

    Three types of paper awards are used. These are loosely aligned with the types of papers the IFIP EGOV-​EPART con­fer­ence was look­ing for:

    • Cat­e­gory 1: The most inno­v­a­tive research con­tri­bu­tion or case study. Awards the paper with the most out-​­of‐the‐box and forward-​looking idea and con­cept. Rel­e­vance is more impor­tant than rigor.
    • Cat­e­gory 2: The most com­pelling, crit­i­cal research reflec­tion. Awards the paper with the most com­pelling crit­i­cal reflec­tion on and dis­cus­sion of e-​government research.
    • Cat­e­gory 3: The most promis­ing prac­ti­cal con­cept. Awards the paper deliv­er­ing a con­cept or solu­tion with the high­est poten­tial to have a high impact in e-​government imple­men­ta­tions and applications.

    Selec­tion Process

    • Step 1 (after sub­mis­sion): Papers sub­mit­ted to the con­fer­ences were reviewed by at least three inde­pen­dent review­ers. Among the papers scor­ing best in the review process, best paper can­di­dates were selected and handed over to the awards committee.
    • Step 2 (after sub­mis­sion of camera-​ready paper): The out­stand­ing paper awards com­mit­tee then reviewed the camera-​ready papers along a list of 5 to 8 cri­te­ria per awards category.
    • Step 3 (shortly before the con­fer­ence): The paper awards com­mit­tee pro­posed a short list per cat­e­gory (approx 3 nominees).
    • Step 4: The awards com­mit­tee decided at the con­fer­ence, which paper won per category.


    The out­stand­ing paper awards cer­e­mony will take place at the con­fer­ence dinner.
