Description : ICT, e-government and electronic participation have become increasingly important in the public sector and the social sphere in recent years. This book presents 53 of the papers accepted for the dual IFIP EGOV-ePart conference 2016, which took place in Guimarães, Portugal, in September 2016. This conference, which consisted of five partially intersecting tracks, presented advances in the socio technological domain of the public sphere demonstrating cutting edge concepts, methods, and styles of investigation by multiple disciplines. The conference has been a premier academic forum for over 15 years and has a worldwide reputation as one of the top two conferences in the research domains of electronic, open and smart government, policy and electronic participation. The papers in this joint proceedings of the 2016 IFIP EGOV-ePart conference comprise accepted submissions from all categories and all tracks (with the exception of some 38 papers which are published separately). The book is divided into 9 sections: eParticipation, e-Government Evaluation, Open Data and Open Government, Governance, Smart Cities, e-Government Implementation and Adoption, Ph.D. Colloquium Papers, Posters, and Workshops. Offering a comprehensive overview of research and practice on electronic government and electronic participation, this book will be of interest to all those involved in the socio-technological domain of the public sphere.
Description : Electronic government and electronic participation continue to transform the public sector and society worldwide and are constantly being transformed themselves by emerging information and communication technologies. This book presents papers from the 14th International Federation for Information Processing’s EGOV conference (IFIP EGOV 2015), and its sister conference, the 7th Electronic Participation (ePart) conference, held in Thessaloniki, Greece, in August and September 2015 with the support and sponsorship of the University of Macedonia. Through the years, both of these conferences have established themselves as leading scientific events in their field, providing a forum for scholars to present and discuss their work. Included here are 31 accepted ongoing research papers, grouped under the following headings: eParticipation; policy modeling; open government and smart cities; general e-government; and e-government services; as well as 6 Ph.D. colloquium papers, 5 accepted posters and 3 workshops. With their combination of scientific credibility and rigor and with high relevance to practice, the papers presented here will be of interest to all those whose work involves electronic government and electronic participation.

Description : Electronic media and ICT have become indispensable in the fields of public governance, policy-making and public service provision. E-government research demonstrates its relevance to practice, influencing and shaping government strategies and implementations. The way in which technology can enable and enhance public participation in government is of particular importance. This book presents the proceedings of the ongoing research of the IFIP EGOV and ePart conferences, jointly held at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, in September 2014. Included are 24 ongoing research papers, case studies and posters from the EGOV conference, grouped into the sections: stakeholders and participation; open data and interoperability; ICT-enabled policy-making; services; design, architecture and processes; and evaluation and public values. From the ePart conference, 5 ongoing research papers are included. The book also includes workshops from both conferences. IFIP EGOV and ePart bring together the scientific research community in e-government from all over the world, and this book will be of interest to all those involved in public governance and service provision.
Description : Senior information executives are currently confronted by a continually growing and increasingly complex set of challenges. These include rapidly changing technologies, environmental issues and the current global economic situation. This book, volume 3 in the Global E-Governance Series, brings together the contributions of acknowledged experts from all over the world, who have presented papers and participated in discussions at three recent conferences on e-government, the role of the CIO (Chief Information Officer) and e-governance. They give us their frank and honest insights, and share with us not only their successes, but also their failures and the lessons they have learnt from them. Divided into five parts, the book covers subjects such as: e-participation and perspectives from citizen involvement, national e-government strategies, innovative CIO, ICT (Information & Communication Technology) in the context of the world economy and finally, global e-government rankings. Despite the different backgrounds and nationalities of the contributors, what is notable are the common themes which emerge from their work. This book will undoubtedly be a valuable resource of interest to all those involved in the field of e-government.

Description : The relationship between citizens and city governments is gradually transforming due to the utilization of advanced information and communication technologies in order to inform, consult, and engage citizens. Citizen E-Participation in Urban Governance: Crowdsourcing and Collaborative Creativity explores the nature of the new challenges confronting citizens and local governments in the field of urban governance.

Description : "E-governance affects every citizen. New information and communication technologies (ICTs) have made public services easier to access and information easier to obtain; fines and taxes can be processed more rapidly and votes can be counted faster. Channeling the potential of ICTs in the public sector has affected how states, and governments at all levels, do business. It will inevitably shape how they will continue to change in the future. This book has grown out of an executive training program, leading to an Executive Master's degree in e-governance, from Switzerland's âEcole Polytechnique Fâedâerale de Lausanne (EPFL). Participants in this Master's program came from all over the world; from government, the private sector and non-governmental organizations. They were all interested in electronic governance and motivated by the desire to learn from the numerous and varied e-governance experiences worldwide. The 12 chapters have been written by 10 participants, one manager and one professor involved in the program. The book is divided into four sections: e-governance visions; local e-governance; transversal e-governance issues and the future of e-governance. E-governance has already led to many significant changes in the way society operates, and this book provides some insight into how this has been achieved, as well as taking a look at the further developments which may happen in the future."--Publisher's website.
