> March 2-4, 2005 Bozen-Bolzano, Italy
>Jointly organized by:
>- European Science Foundation, TED working group
>- Free University of Bozen-Bolzano
>- City of Bozen-Bolzano
>- IFIP WG 8.5 - Information Systems in Public Administration
>The European Science Foundation (ESF) has established the program
>TOWARDS ELECTRONIC DEMOCRACY (TED) with the overall objectives: (1) to
>discuss and evaluate how advances of interactive decision-analytic
>tools might help develop e-Democracy; (2) to develop e-Government
>systems which involve their citizens more fully in the public decision
>making process.
>As part of this program, a conference on interdisciplinary methods and
>techniques related to the TED program is being held in Bozen-Bolzano
>in Spring 2005. The conference aims at addressing a large spectrum of
>issues that are relevant and have to be investigated for a successful
>transition from the traditional form of government to a new form known
>as e-Government. The conference has a strong interdisciplinary
>character and aims to bring together people from different sectors,
>including researchers, technology providers, administrative staff, and
>E-Government is generally defined as the use of information and
>communication technology in public administrations in order to improve
>public services and democratic processes. This complex and
>interdisciplinary research field requires contributions from different
>sectors, including the various fields of computer science which
>provide the enabling technology for the implementation/realization of
>this new vision of government.
>The conference will put a special emphasis to the following areas:
>1. Improving citizen participation and policy making (e-Democracy)
>2. Decision support systems (e-Decision)
>3. Security aspects for e-Government services
>4. Cross-border and inter-organizational services
>5. Data and application integration in the public administration
>These areas include but are not limited to the following
>- Decision support systems on the Web
>- Semantic Web and Web services for e-Government
>- Government application integration
>- Semantic and technical interoperability
>- Integration of heterogeneous data sources
>- Knowlege management, data mining, and intelligent systems
>- Open source in the public sector
>- e-Negotiations
>- e-Procurement
>- Digital divide
>- Social and cultural issues
>- Political and societal implications of e-Government
>- Electronic identity card
>- Access control to information and services
>- e-Government and multilingualism
>- e-Government for small and medium sized government organizations (SMGO)
>- Best practice experiences and case studies
>The TED conference welcomes the submission of original research papers
>dealing with all aspects of e-Government, particularly those relating
>to the areas and topics listed above. We encourage theoretical,
>methodological, empirical, application, and best practice papers.
>Submitted papers shall not be longer than 4000-4500 words. Authors are
>encouraged, but not obliged, to format the submission according to the
>Springer LNCS formatting guidelines
>Paper submission will be electronic, via the paper submission
>page. The only formats allowed for submission are PDF (preferably) or
>PostScript. The deadline for paper submission is September 14, 2004.
>Each paper will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 reviewers. Reviewing
>will be blind to the identities of the authors and their institutions.
>Thus, authors' names and affiliations must not appear in the paper and
>bibliographic references must be made in such a way as to preserve
>author anonymity.
>Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and published in
