Workshops

The conference is now accepting Workshop proposals.

▢ About

The conference welcomes the submission of Workshop proposals. The accepted workshops will take place on 26 September 2023 and are planned as 2-hours long sessions: three in the morning and three in the afternoon. Workshops are submitted through a form available on this page below.

The major goal of the workshops is to draw attention to topics that are not explicitly discussed in the main conference sessions but are still pertinent to the conference theme and tracks while introducing more interactive techniques to engage the participants. Workshops should not be solely used for the presentation of research work (e.g. reports or papers); they should also seek to facilitate networking with worldwide experts, researchers, practitioners, government officials, and policy-makers, among others, as well as an engaging debate. Because the workshop is designed to be participatory rather than passive, the organiser must incorporate activities that encourage participation and engagement from the attendees.


▢ Important dates

Each workshop proposal must be submitted using the form available below until 23 April 2023. Submissions past this deadline will not be accepted and no other means of submission are available. Each proposal should be as complete as possible, although respecting the word limit for each field. A copy of the proposal is sent automatically by email to the person responsible for the submission. The decision notification will be issued to the same email address on 5 July 2023.


▢ Selection criteria

All proposals will undergo a formal review process by the Workshops Coordinator, who will, in turn, suggest a list of candidate workshops to the Programme Committee Chairs for validation. The specific selection criteria for evaluating 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 likely to generate lively interactions and attract multiple types of participants. For a successful proposal, the following questions should be taken into consideration:

  • Why is the topic or topics relevant to the conference?
  • Why is the topic or topics novel and important?
  • Who is the expected audience, and what is the strategy foreseen (if any) to attract participants for the workshop?
  • How is the workshop covering original topics not necessarily covered by other conference sessions?

▢ Conditons

Kindly note that the following conditions apply:

  • All workshops must be in-person (no remote presentations).
  • Each workshop’s Chair will receive one free registration to attend the conference in full. Regardless of the nature of their presentation, the remaining speakers invited to the workshops shall pay the respective registration fee to attend ICEGOV 2023.
  • As the workshops take place outside the three main days of the conference, the organiser(s) of each workshop is the sole responsible for attracting participants. Although the ICEGOV team will promote and disseminate the accepted workshops as much as possible, it is unable to guarantee attendance.
