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.


Digital Government at the Transformation stage aims at improving internal processes, structures and working practices of government organizations through digital technology. The improvement often takes place as part of a larger administrative and institutional reform in government, and aims at internal efficiency, effectiveness, rationalization, simplification and other reform-related goals. The reform includes but is not restricted to improvements pursued within a single organization – cooperation with other government organizations, even whole-of-government arrangements comprising entire sectors and levels of government, are pursued at this stage. The main mechanism to carry out such improvement is technological and organizational innovation, including a fundamental rethink of what a technology-enabled government, organization or sector does or should do in digital terms and how to align its business and technological developments. The main enabler to carry out such improvement is the digital and technological environment, including related capabilities and structures, established as part of the Digitization Stage.

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

  • Business process reengineering and integration
  • Connected and networked government
  • Digital Government competencies and frameworks
