Maria Wimmer had a visionary speech along the High-level E-Gov Conference 14-15 November 2013 in Vilnius, Lithuania about eGovPoliNet research contributions for future e-Government and e-Participation. She drew six scenarios for future visions of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) solutions for e-Government and e-Participation.
The 7th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV2013) was organised under the patronage of the Ministry of Security and Public Administration by the National Information Society Agency and the Center for Electronic Governance at UNU-IIST (founder and coordinator of the ICEGOV series). A dedicated Track on Policy and Governance Innovations organised by eGovPoliNet members brought together experts to discuss about bridging researchers from different fields, communities and countries.
The 7th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV2013) will take place in Seoul, Republic of Korea from 22 to 25 October 2013. The conference is organized under the patronage of the Ministry of Security and Public Administration by the National Information Society Agency and the Center for Electronic Governance at UNU-IIST (founder and coordinator of the ICEGOV series).
The field of policy-making is changing driven by developments in data analysis and social media. To deal with the new challenges, involvement of multiple disciplines is needed.
IRSPM Conference - Panel "Supporting Public Policy and Governance: The Emerging Role of Policy Informatics"
CALL FOR PAPER ABSTRACTS - DUE OCTOBER 1, 2012 Panel Sessions on: Supporting Public Policy and Governance: The Emerging Role of Policy Informatics
Abstracts now being accepted until March 30. Submissions can be marked for review among the papers on policy informatics in addition to other substantive policy areas. Great opportunity to connect EgovPoliNet to APPAM community.
ICEGOV 2012 attracts participants throughout the world to come together to share knowledge, discuss efforts of countries on governance and open government, as well as to share challenges and lessons learned.
The European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST) would like to invite you to submit papers for the conference, "Design and displacement – social studies of science and technology", on 17th-20th October 2012. Please refer to the attached document for more information. Please note that the deadline for submission of papers and session proposals has been extended to 5th March.
"Design and displacement – social studies of science and technology" Call for Abstracts
Computational Modelling and Social Simulation refers comprehensively to current scientific paradigms – be it complexity, generative modelling, micro-macro duality, scaling problems, system theory, process dynamics, or heterogeneity, just to mention a few.
The workshop is part of the projects’ activities to establish a strong community on ICT for governance and policy modelling and to stimulate discussion on future grand challenges and research needs. With the particular objectives of the projects to cross-fertilize among key actors of distinct disciplines and policy practitioners, the workshop will first present results from • the State of the Art tools and methodologies for next-generation policy-making (Crossover), and from • the study to investigate the coverage of objectives of FP 7 and future research needs (eGovPoliNet)
Social sciences are moving in a direction in which their various constituent parts are sharing a common set of foundations, languages and platforms, which makes the social sciences be unprecedentedly behavioral, algorithmic and computational. At the turn of the 21st century, a group of computer scientists and social scientists worked together to initiate new series of conferences and to establish new academic organizations to give momentum to this emerging integration now known as computational social sciences. Among the largest of such conferences, WCSS is sponsored by the three regional scientific associations on social simulations: ESSA (the European Social Simulation Association), PAAA (Pacific Asian Association for Agent-based Approach in Social Systems Sciences) and CSSS (Computational Social Science Society, US). It aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields on social simulations, whether theoretical, experimental, practical, or technical, to present the latest results of various researches and to discuss emergent phenomena and modeling issues of a variety of research subjects related to social simulations, which will provide further understanding on social complex problems.
European Conference on Complex Systems has the following tracks: Foundations of Complex Systems, Information and Computation Prediction, Policy and Planning, Environment Biological Complexity Interacting Populations, Collective Behavior Social Systems, Economics and Finance. Experts meet to discuss and advance findings in the field.
