EGOV 2014 - home

IFIP EGOV 2014 took place at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

Date: 1st - 3rd September 2014

The annual international IFIP Electronic Government (EGOV) conference is the European core conference in the domain of ICT in the public sector. Each year, scholars from all over the globe present the state of the art and most recent innovations in e-government, e-governance and related fields of study. The conference is organised by the IFIP Working Group 8.5 on information systems in the public sector.

Since its beginnings in 2001, the EGOV conference has provided important guidance for research and development in this fast-moving domain of study. The IFIP EGOV conference brings together leading researchers and professionals from across the globe and from a number of disciplines. Together with IFIP ePart, the sibling conference on electronic participation, and frequently affiliated workshops on emerging topics, the IFIP EGOV conferences have attracted around 150 participants on average per year from all continents including developing countries.

E-government research demonstrates its relevance to practice and, consequently, influences and shapes government strategies and implementations. Conversely, e-government practice also inspires e-government research.

IFIP EGOV brings together the scientific research community in e‐government from all over the world. The conference provides a highly interactive and professional forum for exchanging research concepts, progress and results.

To stimulate new research, the tenth PhD Colloquium was held as well which was dedicated to learning and understanding from each other. It hosted topical threads of both conferences. 

As indicated above, the IFIP EGOV was co-located with the Sixth IFIP International Conference on electronic participation (IFIP ePart), which was dedicated to topics on e-participation and e- democracy. IFIP ePart took place in parallel to the IFIP EGOV conference at the same venue. Participants registering for one conference could also attend the other conference for no extra charge.

We thank all participants for their contributions and to Frank Bannister for the wonderful host location in 2014. We hope that all of you had successful discussions and networking occasions among e-government and e-participation researchers and practitioners and look forward to meet you again at EGOV 2015 in Thessaloniki, Greece.
