TOPICS

1. Challenges of e-Democracy
Sharing the results of scientific researches on the use of e-Technology in administrative and management processes (AMP), contributes to the expansion of the democracy through greater transparency, predictability and broad citizen’s participation in decision making.
We are expecting reports on the work of professional and social networks in relation to e-Governance as a tool for increasing democratization on thematic and practical aspects of national, regional and international levels. The interest in the forms, techniques and organization of e-Participation in AMP through web based forums such as videoconferencing, online voting, etc is increased. Using of the most contemporary conference technology allows remote sharing of results, scientific achievements and "good practices". Remote presentation of the papers and their inclusion in conference proceedings, regardless of the geographic location of the participants, are provided.
Remote or on-site demos of innovative practices are welcome.

2. Contemporary aspects and trends of e-Governance
Through e-Governance is achieved not only greater public access to information and greater convenience of administrative services, but also more effective management at all levels (central, regional and local). Management has developed into “paperless” through automated implementation of activities such as creation, storage, editing, sharing, retrieving and information archiving.
Problems with increased interest in this thematic area are: achieving integration, interoperability and performance of the tasks of planning, reporting, decision making and control; presentation of ways and means for "open" use of data and "open" governance; examination of forms and methods of standardization in AMP; discussing techniques and tools for security and protection of the information (including personal information); introduction to the technology and organization of shared and virtual services etc.

3. e-Governance Education
Requirements of the European strategy for sustainable development present many challenges to e-Governance and education in this area. The researches in the field of e-Governance generate knowledge that need to be shown how to enter in the educational process.
The main purpose of this thematic area is to present different perspectives, methods and tools for integrating of scientific researches and trainings in the field of e-Governance for the spread of knowledge and formation of new ones. Sharing experiences, discussions and debates that lead to guidelines and recommendations for further development of e-Learning management are encouraged. We are expecting proposals and attempt to disseminate the results of research and ideas for discussion sessions and educational seminars for young scientists.

4. E-Governance in Public and Business Administration
On-line management has an important role for active citizen participation in all processes of society. The e-Governance in public and business administration is closely related to and strongly influenced by the methods and tools for modeling, evaluation, certification and its integration with innovation – issues where theoretical and practical research results are expected to be shared. Submission of works to improve the accountability, effectiveness and efficiency of the public administration and business competitiveness at all levels, stages and phases are encouraged. We are expecting also proposals to expand the place, time and availability of infrastructure and its administrative services. The developments in risk management, as well as the methods and pathways for innovative solutions in administrative and management systems are welcome. We are expecting in this thematic area also sharing of researches and "best practices" that have an impact on social development and quality of administrative service.
