ICEGOV 2020 postponed

On behalf of the University of the Aegean, the Harokopio University of Athens, and the United Nations University (UNU-EGOV), we would like to inform you that due to the recent developments in Europe regarding the COVID-19 virus outbreak, and the decision of the Greek government to postpone all conferences in the country for a month (starting on 9 March), we have to postpone ICEGOV 2020 to a later time this year.

Within the next few days, we will commit our best efforts in collaboration with the conference patron and partners to set a new date for ICEGOV 2020. The conference will still be held in Athens, Greece, with the same overall programme, as currently published on

We will continue with the conference preparations and remain fully committed to the success of ICEGOV 2020. We thank you for your interest and work done so far, especially those in charge of thematic sessions and authors of accepted papers.

In case you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by email to We will try to reply as soon as possible.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and still look forward to welcoming you to Athens later this year.

Kind regards,

The ICEGOV 2020 Team
