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.


Aimed at modernization, internal efficiency and access, Digital Government at the Digitization stage involves the development, operation and maintenance of the technological environment, including the availability of technological capabilities, services and infrastructure within and between government organizations.  In this environment, Digitization entails the representation of data, documents and other information in digital formats, when previously held by government organizations in physical or analog forms; making such information available to staff, partners and other stakeholders within and outside a government organization in digital formats, when previously available to the same stakeholders in physical and analog forms; automating existing processes, services and the entire offices based on digitized information and its exchange through digital networks; and making the services accessible to citizens in digitized format and through digital networks, when previously accessible in physical and analog forms.

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

  • Administrative process automation
  • Big data outlier handling
  • Big data, linked data and data analytics
  • Computer-supported government work
