CeDEM12 - International Conference for eDemocracy and Open Government 2012
CeDEM12 brings together eDemocracy, eParticipation and open government specialists working in academia, politics, government and business.
In modern democracies, people are to be empowered by means of information and communication technologies. Transparency and access to data, new ways of interacting with government and democratic institutions cause profound changes in society. Social media and the new forms of societal behaviour, including content generation, collaboration and sharing as well as network organisation change our understanding of politics and business. Governmental and private internet services have increased the citizens' independence and flexibility. However, enthusiastic ideas and projects often failed to produce the expected results as technology is only the basis for new forms of organisation and interaction. CeDEM12 seeks to critically analyse present and future developments in eDemocracy and open government.
CeDEM12 will present the following tracks:
- Government 2.0
- Social Media and Public Administration
- ePolitics and eCampaigning
- European Citizen Initiative
- Participatory Budgeting
- Bottom-Up Movements
- Open Data and Open Access
The conference proceedings will be published with the new Edition of the Danube University; additionally, the complete proceedings will be made accessible online. A selection of best research papers and case studies of CeDEM12 will be published with the Open Access eJournal of eDemocracy and Open Government. (http://www.jedem.org).
Useful information about important dates and paper submission may be found on the event website.
Registration for the event can be performed online.
