International Conference on Electronic Government and the Information Systems Perspective and International Conference on Electronic Democracy

EGOVIS and EDEM 2012

Advancing Democracy, Government and Governance

Vienna (Austria)
September 3 - 7, 2012


Objectives of the Joint Event EGOVIS/EDEM 2012

Advancing Democracy, Government and Governance – For the first time the two established scientific conferencesEGOVIS and EDEM have joined forces in the area of eGovernment and eDemocracy. The joint event will be organized within the framework of DEXA 2012. Given that the two domains are closely related, the idea is to provide a cross-cutting forum where experts from both domains will be able to discuss and exchange innovative ideas. We invite original contributions or experience reports covering one of the topics of the 2012 EGOVIS and/or EDEM call for papers (for the thematic focus of EGOVIS/EDEM 2012 see below). All accepted conference papers will be published in "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" (LNCS) by Springer Verlag. We accept

  • full papers (15-page papers; descriptions of complete technical work), or
  • short papers (up to 8 pages; innovative ideas, which nevertheless require more work to mature).

Conference Programme Chairpersons:

  • Andrea Kö, Corvinus University Budapest, Hungary
  • Christine Leitner, CEPA, Danube University Krems, Austria
  • Herbert Leitold, A-SIT Secure Information Technology Center, Graz, Austria
  • Alexander Prosser, University of Economics and Business Administration, Vienna, Austria

Honorary Chairpersons:

  • Wichian Chutimaskul, King Mongkut's University of Technology, Thailand
  • Andras Gabor, Corvinus University Budapest, Hungary
  • Fernando Galindo, University Zaragoza, Spain
  • Roland Traunmüller, University of Linz, Austria

Important Dates:

  • Paper submission: March 2, 2012 --- extended to March 23, 2012
  • Notification of acceptance: May 11, 2012
  • Camera-ready copies due: June 8, 2012

Paper Submission Details:

Authors are invited to submit electronically original contributions or experience reports in English.

  • The submitted manuscript should closely reflect the final paper as it will appear in the proceedings.
  • Papers should not exceed 15 pages in LNCS format (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).
  • Any submission that exceeds length limits or deviates from formatting requirements may be rejected without review.

For paper registration and electronic submission see https://confdriver.ifs.tuwien.ac.at/dexa2012 starting January 2012. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. Duplicate submissions are not allowed. Authors are expected to agree to the following terms: "I understand that the paper being submitted must not overlap substantially with any other paper that I am a co-author of and that is currently submitted elsewhere. Furthermore, previously published papers with any overlap are cited prominently in this submission." Duplicate submissions will be rejected. Questions about this policy or how it applies to your work should be directed to the PC-chairs.

Accepted Papers:

All accepted conference papers will be published in "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" (LNCS) by Springer Verlag. Accepted papers will be of two sizes:

  • full (15-page papers) and
  • short (up to 8 pages).

The former will tend to be descriptions of complete technical work, while the latter will tend to be descriptions of interesting, innovative ideas, which nevertheless require more work to mature. Authors of accepted papers must sign a Springer copyright release form.

EDEM 2012 – Thematic Focus

The EDEM conference series focuses on electronic citizen participation (“eParticipation”). This application field has matured and been integrated in a large number of Government processes. Successful electronic democracy implementation has technical, legal, organisational and social aspects. The conference has hence reflected this multi-disciplinary approach. Both theoretical and applied research is welcome. We welcome papers with a diversity of methodological approaches but particularly those with a strong theoretical underpinning. The areas of interest include, but are not limited to

  • Citizen participation in administrative processes
  • Citizen involvement in administrative design
  • Participatory budgeting
  • eTransparency and anti-corruption
  • Municipal and local participation
  • eConsultation in the legislative process
  • Political education and citizen participation
  • eDemocracy as a means of involving young people
  • Web 2.0 and citizen participation
  • The role of social networks and platforms (Twitter, youtube, etc.)
  • Deliberation and citizen involvement
  • Participation of citizens abroad
  • ePetitions and eVoting
  • Observation and transparency in electronic citizen involvement
  • The European Union and electronic citizen participation
  • The European Citizens’ Initiative
  • eParticipation and the media
  • eParticipation and the digital divide
  • Pitfalls and dangers, limits of eParticipation
  • Privacy aspects
  • Changes in the “rules of play” by the introduction of electronic media
