Summary

About

The 11th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV2018) took place in Galway, Ireland, between 4 and 6 April 2018. The conference was held under the high patronage of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform (DPER), Government of Ireland. The Insight Centre for Data Analytics, part of the National University of Ireland Galway, co-organised ICEGOV2018 with the United Nations University Operating Unit on Policy-Driven Electronic Governance (UNU-EGOV), the latter also serving as the ICEGOV Series Organizer. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) acted as a collaborator.

Continuing the ICEGOV tradition, ICEGOV2018 featured a rich academic, capacity-building and network-building programme (available for download here) of keynote lectures, plenary sessions, track sessions, invited sessions, a poster exhibition, and a doctoral colloquium, all based on submitted or invited contributions by researchers, experts, policy-makers, and practitioners from around the world.


Call for Papers

In response to the Call for Papers (available for download here), ICEGOV2018 received a total of 183 submissions written by 378 authors from 60 countries and economies. Subsequently, there was a double-blind peer-review process carried out by the Programme Committee. On this basis, 107 papers were accepted, including 73 full papers, 7 short papers, 22 posters and 5 doctoral research papers. However, 3 papers were later withdrawn, leaving a total of 104 papers that were then revised to address the comments received from the reviewers and were presented at the conference as part of the Track Sessions, the Poster Exhibition, and the Doctoral Colloquium, and are included in the conference proceedings.

A poster exhibition was organized in a reception style to allow authors to present their ongoing work, receive feedback, and engage in discussions and networking. A total of 22 posters were accepted for the conference and presented at the Poster Exhibition.

An interactive Doctoral Colloquium took place on 3 April 2018, providing doctoral students from different disciplines an opportunity to present their accepted papers and discuss a variety of EGOV topics and issues associated with their research work, dissertations, and career plans. During the Colloquium, 5 PhD students presented their research work and received feedback from senior faculty members.
