The Greek Interoperability Centre organized a Workshop on "Demonstrating eParticipation Projects: Platforms and Pilots Evaluation" and participated in the 8th International EGOV Conference 2009 and the 1st International Conference on eParticipation (ePart) 2009 (within the DEXA Conference Cluster).

Organizers of the Workshop:

The Workshop on "Demonstrating eParticipation Projects: Platforms and Pilots Evaluation", held in conjunction with the 1st International Conference on eParticipation (ePart) 2009 on September 1st, 2009, brought together eParticipation researchers and stimulated discussion among representatives of Enterprises, Governments and European Commission on the practical achievements and current challenges of electronic participation research. To achieve the above goal, the first part of the workshop was given to real-life demonstrations and cases analysis, accompanied by additional relevant contributions from other international research projects, whereas the second part was dedicated to general policy making and eParticipation issues that formulate the future landscape of the domain.

The International EGOV conference annually presents the state of eGovernment and eGovernance research and practice and brings together leading researchers and professionals from all over the globe and from many disciplines. In the EGOV 2009, topics, such as Research theories and frameworks for public sector modernization with the support of ICT, Analysing and assessing contemporary research in eGovernment and eGovernance, Designing systems for the public sector: innovative cases and systems and Future directions in research and practice of ICT in the public sector, were included in the scope of the conference.

The ePart Conference is dedicated to innovative and rigorous eParticipation research and specifically provides a ground for researchers of distinct disciplines to come together and discuss advances of eParticipation research from distinct disciplinary angles.  The scope of the ePart 2009 covers the whole range of research in eParticipation with the principal aim to review research advances in both social and technological scientific domains, seeking to demonstrate new concepts, methods and styles of eParticipation.

Place: Linz, Austria
