You are invited to submit an extended abstract for presentation and discussion at the 2016 pre-ICIS Workshop on e-Government, co-organized by the Association of Information Systems (AIS) Special Interest Group on e-Government (SIGe-Gov) and the Digital Government Society (DGS), to be held on 11 December 2016 in Dublin, Ireland.

The general objective of the AIS SIG e-Government is to promote quality and relevance in e-Government research within the IS community. The DGS is a global multi-disciplinary organization of scholars and practitioners engaged in digital government research and practice that nurtures technical, social, and organizational transformation in the public sector. This workshop presents the first collaborative effort between the AIS SIG e-Government and the DGS.

Workshop Objective

As with previous SIG eGovernment pre-ICIS workshops, this joint workshop will be designed to provide the maximum opportunity for knowledge sharing and discussion of the abstracts submitted. The workshop will include brief formal presentations and a variety of large and small group discussions designed to help facilitate knowledge sharing among participants and to lay the foundation for future collaborations. The discussion will be moderated to ensure opportunity for full participation.
