Online programme IFIP EGOV2020
The goal of a conference is to meet each other, to discuss research and, in this way, advance our research field. Most presentations will be featured as a form of asynchronous manner, whereas the keynotes, workshops, Q&A, and discussions will be delivered synchronously, which means that these will be held LIVE on Tuesday 1 September and Wednesday 2 September from 8:30 to 19:00 (CEST).
The basic rule of asynchronous presentation method is that presenters/authors will record their presentation videos and upload their presentation using http://videolectures.net/. Participants are encouraged to watch the presentations in advance and to read the papers. For the live streams, we will have NO parallel sessions, and all sessions will be scheduled one after each other in the same room. This means longer days, but we expect that most persons will not attend all sessions.
Prepare before the conference!
Usually, the conference starts on Mondays. Instead of having sessions, we suggest watching the videos and read the papers in the proceedings on this day (or before). Write down your questions, but wait for the live sessions during the conference to ask them.
Live sessions – live Tuesday 1 and Wednesday 2 September (Zoom).
The live session will be managed as follow:
- The chair moderates the session: start recordings, and introduces speakers or discussion
- Videos should be turned off and microphones muted (except for presenters and moderators)
- Each author summarizes their main research in max 2 minutes, but less is better (remember participants have watched your film)
- Each presenting author prepares one question for the other papers in the session (not all questions have to be asked, but this ensure sufficient interaction)
- Each track chair prepares at least one question per paper (as there are 3 track chairs this means a minimum of 3 questions)
- Ask questions using the chat and wait for the moderator to speak
- The moderator determines who will be the next one to ask questions
- The person asking questions mention its name/ university before asking the first question
- The moderator ensures that all papers have a minimum amount of time for question
- End by summarizing the session
- If time does not allow, please share your question in the chat with the presenter (so there is plenty of feedback for each paper)
The moderator takes care of muting participants, and maintaining the video-sharing restrictions (you can, for example, disable webcam sharing for all users except moderators). Users who have audio issues can use a browser to view the room and participate in the chat, and retrieve the dial-in Information to join the audio by phone.

Keynote: E-Government: Overcoming the Systemic Failure of Digital Transformation – Vishanth Weerakkody
Digital technology undoubtedly has huge potential to contribute to the functions of government and public administration, but so far, the building of information portals and putting transactions on government web sites have not realised the great expectations for it in terms of “transforming government”. The “transformation of government” has often been proposed as an objective of e-government; frequently presented as a phase in stage models following the provision online of information and transactions. Yet in literature or official documents there is no established definition of transformation as applied to government. Implicitly or explicitly, it mostly refers to a change in organisational form, signalled by the terms “joining-up” or “integration”, of government. In some work, transformation is limited to changing processes or “services”— though “services” is a term unhelpfully applied to a multitude of entities. There is in academic or other literature little evidence of any type of “transformation” achieved beyond a change in an administrative process, nor a robust framework of benefits one might deliver. This begs the questions of what it actually means in reality and why it might be a desired goal. This presentation explores why the ambitions for transformational e-government (however it has been labelled) over the last 20 years have not been realised. It provides a critical analysis to offer a diagnosis of the problem and its causes. The presentation draws from evidence offered to the house of commons in the UK parliament regarding the progress made in digital transformation. It develops a structured frame of reference for making sense of how information and communications technologies (ICT), in all their forms, really fit within the world of government and public administration.
Brief Profile: Vishanth Weerakkody
I am currently the Dean for the Faculty of Management, Law and Social Sciences and Professor of Digital Governance at University of Bradford. Before moving to University of Bradford, I held various senior management roles at Brunel Business School and was a Professor of Digital Governance at Brunel University London. My current research is multidisciplinary and centred around public sector policy implementation, process transformation through digital government, social innovation and the implementation, diffusion and adoption of disruptive technologies within a smart city – services context. Focusing on the evolving role of technology, I closely follow and critique digital enabled service transformation efforts in government. My passion for solving societal problems through research and innovation together with a vast network of collaborators from both academia and industry has allowed me to attract over £25 million of R&D funding over the last few years from the EU, ESRC, Qatar Foundation, British Council and UK Local Government. As a research-active academic, I continue to publish in Chartered Association of Business Schools 3* and 4* journals. My publications have appeared in Journal of Information Technology, Journal of Business Research, European Journal of Marketing, International Review of Administrative Sciences, Government Information Quarterly, Information Systems Frontiers, Technological Forecasting and Social Change, Production Planning and Control, International Business Review, Computers in Human Behaviour and European Journal of Operational Research. Prior to my academic career, I worked in several multinational organisations both in the UK and overseas and my last role in industry was as a Methods and Process Analyst at IBM UK.
KEYNOTE: The book of YES and the book of NO: Between governance and engineering in times of crisis
Abstract: Initially, this talk would have been about how we can build a secure Internet. However, then times changed. Now the question no longer only is ‘how can we secure our infrastructure’, but instead ‘how can we build and maintain critical infrastructures in a time of crisis’. All of a sudden, we look at the question whether Netflix might be critical infrastructure, a tool keeping people locked in their houses sane. We now do not only wonder about being secure from attackers, but also have to ask the question whether the design decisions we make when moving to remote teaching and collaboration technology are sufficiently privacy preserving—a question we happily neglect to satisfy an immediate need. In the end, this all boils down to a core governance question in times of crisis: How much red tape can we cut when building networked systems in a time of crisis, and how can we ensure this red-tape is stitched back together, as soon as the crisis is gone.
Bio: Dr.-Ing. Tobias Fiebig is an assistant professor in the Information and Communication Technology section at the faculty of Technology, Policy and Management of TU Delft, focusing on identifying and mitigating human-factors based and preventable security issues in IT systems. For this, Dr.-Ing. Fiebig uses qualitative research methods, but also develops new tools for the future-proof Internet scale assessment of vulnerabilities. His most recent publications include a significant contribution towards making the IPv6 Internet scanable, understanding and mitigating the impact of DNS misconfigurations in the DNS ecosystem, and the first study on system operators’ perspective on security misconfigurations. Furthermore, he leads the work package on Governance in the EU Cyber Security Pilot ‘CyberSecurity4Europe’. In addition to the academic reception of his work, Dr.-Ing. Fiebig is also actively involved in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) where he works on improving the resilience of protocols against common misconfigurations. However, most of all, he is a system and network engineer and builds systems,
Workshop: SPIDER: open SPatial data Infrastructure eDucation nEtwoRk
Bastiaan van Loenen, Frederika Welle Donker and Ali Mansourian
The experiences of the geographic data domain will be shared with the open data research & education community to promote and strengthen active innovative learning and teaching in both worlds. The domain of geographic data can be considered as one of the front running in open data. Over the past two decades, many geographic datasets in Europe became available as open data through the open [spatial] data infrastructure. Several of the high value dataset categories in the EU Directive on Open data and reuse of Public Sector Information have a geographic component. Teachers in this domain are struggling with the concepts of data ecosystems and data infrastructures presented in the academic literature. A very current discussion is on the exact scope of ‘open’ spatial data infrastructures (SDIs), in which also nongovernment data and nongovernment actors should be considered as key to the performance of the infrastructure and/or ecosystem. Moreover, teaching methods are still limited to traditional teaching in the classroom. As a consequence, there is barely an international exchange of educational material and approaches on open SDI among universities. In this workshop an overview and detailed analysis of the concepts of open data ecosystems and infrastructures are presented and discussed and existing open data education highlighting good practices of learning, teaching and training in open [spatial] data infrastructures or ecosystems explored.
Workshop: Understanding Data-Sharing and Collaboration
Natalia Kadenko, Marijn Janssen, Michel van Eeten, Tobias Fiebig, Fabio Massacci, Pierantonia Sterlini and Wolter Pieters
Data-sharing is key to scientific breakthroughs and successful collaboration. With the additional challenges facing the world nowadays, understanding the drivers of scientific collaboration becomes essential; this workshop will be able to contribute to the growing body of research on collaboration in the cybersecurity field and provide helpful insights for the CyberSec4Europe project, as well as for the whole cybersecurity community. The workshop participants will be invited to contribute their experiences on data-sharing and cooperation. They will be asked the following questions:
– What are your own experiences with data-sharing?
– What would be your motives to share/absolutely not to share?
– Would you say that A/I/other affiliation plays a role for you while you make decisions on data-sharing?
– Would you say that it is essential to encourage data sharing? Why (not)?
Based on the results and the audience experiences/participation, conclusions will be drawn on the role of data-sharing in collaboration and community-building.
Workshop: Assessment of the use of Artificial Intelligence to support public services: methodology and roadmap
Anne Fleur van Veenstra, Gabriela Bodea, Tjerk Timan, Gianluca Misuraca and Colin van Noordt
To assess the social and economic impacts of Artificial Intelligence on public services, a methodology using a public value perspective was developed. The objectives of the workshop are to engage the audience in a discussion on the social and economic impact of AI on public services, to validate the proposed impact assessment methodology, and to identify opportunities, threats, enablers and barriers to develop a roadmap for the implementation.
