Government of India Emblem



Government of India with UNESCO and the United Nations University's unit on policy-driven electronic governance (UNU-EGOV) are organizing the 10th  edition of ICEGOV – The International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance – in March 2017, in New Delhi.

The objectives of the ICEGOV series resonate with the participative and inclusive ethos and intent of our FLAGSHIP DIGITAL INDIA PROGRAMME, which, under the guidance and leadership at the highest levels in the country, has amplified the focus on e-governance with major thrusts on infrastructure for electronic connectivity, access to e-services in real time, and digital empowerment of citizens.

ICEGOV events feature rich academic, capacity-building and network programme of keynote lectures, plenary discussions, paper tracks (that include tutorials, paper sessions and workshops), thematic sessions, invited sessions, poster exhibitions, and doctoral colloquia, all built from submitted or invited contributions by researchers and experts from around the world.

ICEGOV2017 invites submissions of original work including research, experience or both, not published or considered for publication elsewhere, that contribute to the conference theme “Building Knowledge Societies - From Digital Government to Digital Empowerment”. The submissions can be targeted at one of the several defined tracks.

Several governments around the world have done much to leverage IT to deploy e-government services, but much more still needs to be done about how best to adopt already-existing technologies and practices, and targeted research efforts for helping government and its suppliers address challenging new requirements. The Policy, Research and Innovation track examines the emerging visions for e-government in research and practice, the technologies required to implement them, and approaches that can be taken to accelerate innovation and the transition of innovative information technologies from the laboratory to operational government systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Conceptual and practical boundaries of the Digital Government field
  • Cybersecurity assessment of critical information infrastructure
  • Design approaches for Digital Government solutions
  • Digital Government and Knowledge Societies transition
  • Digital Government and Sustainable Development Goals
