International Conference for E-Democracy and Open Government (CeDEM) 2016

  • Conference Call
  • The Cen­tre for E-​Governance at the Danube Uni­ver­sity Krems has been organ­is­ing con­fer­ences on e-​democracy and pub­lic admin­is­tra­tion since 2007: the E-​democracy Con­fer­ences began in 2007, and the CeDEM, first pre­sented in 2011, rep­re­sents the devel­op­ment and con­tin­u­a­tion of the con­fer­ence series. The CeDEM is also held bien­ni­ally in Asia (CeDEM Asia).

    We invite indi­vid­u­als from aca­d­e­mic and applied back­grounds as well as busi­ness, pub­lic author­i­ties, NGOs, NPOs and edu­ca­tion insti­tu­tions to sub­mit their papers, reflec­tions as well as work­shop pro­pos­als to the top­ics addressed in the tracks. We wel­come inter­dis­ci­pli­nary approaches to the con­fer­ence topics.
