Open and collaborative governance refers to new forms of governance through the effective use of digital technologies to engage with and empower citizens and businesses. By replacing the traditional models of formulating and implementing public policies, collaborative governance can bring together government and other stakeholders for discussion and policy-making decisions from early stages of policy design, while also providing open, big and linked data across all sectors of the economy, enhancing transparency and springing entrepreneurship. This track seeks innovative contributions in the form of new approaches, case studies or more theoretical and visionary papers that cross the traditional boundaries of traditional bureaucracy and show the potential of "Government 2.0".
