CONFERENCE GENERAL TOPICS

1. E-Democracy and Management Processes
The latest scientific achievements in the field of e-Technology has a significant impact on the Administrative Management processes (AMP) contributing to its greater democratisation by making possible the transparency and the more active citizens participation in the decision making.
Papers investigating professional and social networks in relation to e-Governance as a tool for increasing democratization on regional, national and international management levels are expected. Researches on various forms, techniques, and organisation of e-Participation in AMP through the application of web based forums, videoconferencing, online voting, and others are encouraged. The benefits of distance communication, knowledge and good practices sharing are of a particular interest. The comparison and discussions on the freedom and ethics in digital societies and on the democracy, globalization and migration are welcome.
A work shop for problems of virtualization and cloud services will be organized. Remote videoconference presentation of papers and their inclusion in conference proceedings, regardless of the geographic location of the participants, are provided.
2. E-Governance State of Arts and Trends
E-Governance not only enables public access to information and strengthens the social confidence in the administrative services, but increases the effectiveness of the management processes. The “paperless” management was made possible as a result of the implementation of ICT in creation, storage, editing, sharing, retrieving and information archiving. The expected conference issues in the field include but are not limited to: achieving integration, interoperability and performance of management tasks as 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; discussions of techniques and tools for security and protection of the information (including personal information). Papers on advanced topics for introduction to the technology and organization of shared and virtual services, cloud public services, smart technologies etc are welcome.
3. E-Governance Education
The Requirements of the European strategy for sustainable development lead to many new challenges in front of 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-Training process management are encouraged. We are expecting papers trying to disseminate the results of use of advanced educational methods as distance and e-Learning, and offering topical ideas for discussion during conference sessions.
Attention will be focused on presentations of young scientists. The winners of students course works/projects and PhD competitions can present their results.
4. Public and Business e-Governance
E-Governance in Public and Business Administration is tightly related to methods and tools for its modelling, evaluation, certification and integration with innovation. Therefore theoretical and practical research presenting solutions on how to improve the accountability, effectiveness and efficiency of the public administration and business competitiveness at all levels, stages and phases are encouraged.
Further topics of interest include: administrative infrastructure, model of collaboration in administrative processes, smart service technologies, risk assessment, as well as sharing of researches and "best practices" that have an impact on social development and quality of administrative service. Finally taking into consideration the growing use of social media and its social and economic impact to citizens, business and administration, paper reporting on the development and application of “big” data for the improvement of business and administration, are more than welcome.
Show forum for good practices demonstration in public and business administration will take place.
