The 1st International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV2007) took place in Macau, China, from 10 to 13 December 2007 and under the high patronage of the Government of Macau SAR. It was co-organized by the Center for Electronic Governance of the United Nations University International Institute for Software Technology (UNU-IIST-EGOV), the Center for Technology in Government (CTG) of the University at Albany, and the United Nations Asian and Pacific Training Centre for Information and Communication Technology for Development (APCICT).
In a diverse international setting of networking and community-building, the conference brought together practitioners, developers and researchers from government, academia, industry and non-governmental organizations to share the latest findings in the theory and practice of Electronic Governance. The conference provided a unique opportunity for close interactions between the three categories of participants, so that each could benefit from the interaction with others. Government participants described concrete initiatives, lessons learned and the remaining challenges. In return, they learned about the latest research results, and how such results are implemented by industry and other governments to address the challenges they face. Industry and non-governmental participants demonstrated concrete technological and organizational solutions for governments. In return, they learned about the challenges faced by governments and the latest research findings available for developing solutions. Academic participants presented models, theories and frameworks which extend the understanding of Electronic Governance and upon which concrete solutions can be built. In return, they learned about the problems faced by governments, gaining access to concrete cases, and identifying opportunities to implement and deploy research prototypes.
