In these critical public finance conditions, which are obviously becoming a constant of public sector functioning, eGovernment and eGovernance policies, programmes, projects and services and their effects will become increasingly subject of critical examining by laic and professional public. It is expected that public sector decision makers (be it at political or institutional level of decision making) will increasingly need qualified methods for evaluation of policies/activities - ex-ante or ex-post. The basis of each qualified decision making is quality and comparable information based on selected models of indicators and adequate data sources.
Recent theory and practice of evaluation and benchmarking is revealing that models of indicators and related data sources are the most critical issue of evaluation. The workshop will be focused on issues of indicators, their data sources and problems of their usage and evaluation.
The workshop will be focused on issues of indicators, their data sources and problems of their usage and evaluation.

- Decision models and ICT solutions supporting policy evaluation
- Data sources for successful ex-ante and ex-post evaluations
- Good practice examples in the field of eGovernment and eGovernance evaluation
Other closely related topics will be welcomed as well.
We invite researchers and practitioneers dealing with eGovernment/eGovernance policies evaluation in the broadest sense. We seek for active participation with presentation and/or paper. We also invite other professionals from the field who would like to participate in the debate.
We will invite EU and other relevant international organizations representatives active in the field of eGovernment/eGovernance policies evaluation.
Papers presented at the workshop will be published in the electronic workshop proceedings. After the workshop, a monograph publication will follow on the basis of selected and peer-reviewed contributions and published by the internationally recognised publisher.
