The submission of Workshop proposals for ICEGOV 2022 is now closed.
ICEGOV 2022 will feature a number of Workshops on 7 October 2022 (Friday), with six slots of three hours each available in the programme:
- Three morning Workshops from 10:00 to 13:00
- Three afternoon Workshops from 14:00 to 17:00
The workshops’ aim is to highlight topics not explicitly covered in the main conference sessions but still related to the conference theme and tracks while providing more interactive approaches to engage the participants. At the same time, workshops aim to provide an interesting discussion of novel ideas, insightful practical and theoretical discussions, and networking with international experts, researchers, practitioners, government officials, policy-makers, among others. As such, the organiser(s) of the workshop must include activities that foster the participation of the attendees; the session is not meant to be sit-and-listen, but rather interactive.
Submission, dates, and registration
The proposal should be submitted using the form available below; no other means of submission are accepted.

All proposals will undergo a formal review process by the Workshops Coordinator, who in turn will suggest a list of candidate workshops to the Programme Committee Chairs for validation. The specific selection criteria for the evaluation of each proposal are based on: relevance, timeliness, novelty, and content. When selecting the proposals, priority will be given to workshops that address exciting topics in creative formats that are likely to generate lively interactions and attract multiple types of participants. For a successful proposal, make sure that you explain how you meet these criteria and what distinguishes your workshop. Some important questions that you should address in the proposal are:
- Why is the topic(s) relevant to the conference?
- Why is the topic(s) novel and important?
- Who is your expected audience and what is the strategy foreseen (if any) to attract participants for the workshop?
- How is the workshop covering topics that are original and not necessarily covered by other conference sessions?
