International Conference for E-Democracy and Open Government (CeDEM) 2017

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence for e-​Democracy and Open Gov­ern­ment brings together e-​democracy, e-​participation and open gov­ern­ment spe­cial­ists work­ing in acad­e­mia, pol­i­tics, gov­ern­ment and busi­ness to crit­i­cally analyse the inno­va­tions, issues, ideas and chal­lenges in the net­worked soci­eties of the dig­i­tal age. The conference’s 2017 edi­tion will be held on May 1719, 2017 in Krems an der Donau, Aus­tria and will be organ­ised by the Cen­ter for E-​Governance at the Danube Uni­ver­sity of Krems.

    The Cen­tre for E-​Governance has been organ­is­ing con­fer­ences on e-​democracy and pub­lic admin­is­tra­tion since 2007: the E-​democracy Con­fer­ence Series began in 2007, and the CeDEM, first pre­sented in 2011, rep­re­sents the devel­op­ment and con­tin­u­a­tion of the con­fer­ence series. Since 2014, 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.

    The CeDEM also pro­vides an Open Space, where par­tic­i­pants can demo­c­ra­t­i­cally choose and organ­ise in a bar­camp style their own pre­sen­ta­tions, work­shops, birds of a feather, events, meet­ings etc..

    Full papers are peer-​reviewed in a double-​blind process and if accepted, are pub­lished by the IEEE Com­puter Soci­ety Con­fer­ence Pub­lish­ing Ser­vices (CPS) and avail­able online on IEEE Xplore Dig­i­tal Library. Work­shop pro­pos­als, PhD col­lo­quium papers and reflec­tions that have been sub­mit­ted and selected by the chairs are pub­lished with Edi­tion Donau-​Universität Krems and avail­able online accord­ing to Open Access principles.

    Authors of the best peer-​reviewed papers will be asked to re-​submit their revised and extended papers for the autumn issue of the Cen­tre for E-Governance’s Open Access eJour­nal of eDemoc­racy and Open Gov­ern­ment. Since 2014, the CeDEM con­fer­ence presents the author/​s of the best paper with the “CeDEM Best Paper Award”. Papers are nom­i­nated for this award by the review­ers dur­ing the peer-​review process, the best paper is then selected by the CeDEM’s track directors.

    The CeDEM offers a PhD Col­lo­quium in coop­er­a­tion with the Danube Uni­ver­sity Krems’ Plat­form for Polit­i­cal Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and net­POL. The PhD Col­lo­quium pro­vides PhD stu­dents the oppor­tu­nity to present their work and gain feed­back from experts as well as meet other PhD stu­dents. Stu­dents from any stage of their PhD are invited to sub­mit their work and invited to apply for the “CeDEM PhD Col­lo­quium Bursary”.
