The International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV) has  been stablished in 2007. The conference runs annually and is coordinated by the United Nations University Operating Unit on Policy-Driven Electronic Governance (UNU-EGOV). Part of the United Nations University and based in the city of Guimarães, north of Portugal, UNU-EGOV is a think tank dedicated to Electronic Governance; a core centre of research, advisory services and training; a bridge between research and public policies; an innovation enhancer; a solid partner within the UN system and its Member States with a particular focus on sustainable development, social inclusion and active citizenship.

The conference took place for the first time in 2007, in Macau. It was the beginning of a journey that has led ICEGOV and its participants to 12 different cities spread over 11 countries and 5 continents. In all its previous editions, ICEGOV addressed pertinent subjects for academics, practitioners, and decision-makers in the EGOV domain.

The host country of ICEGOV-2020 is GREECE, which comes from the Latin word Graecia (as used by the Romans) and literally means “the land of the Greeks”. In Greek, however, the country is known as Hellas and thus officially as the Hellenic Republic. Located in Southern Europe at the crossroads of three continents (Europe, Asia, and Africa), Greece is widely considered the cradle of Western civilisation, being the birthplace of democracy, Western philosophy, Western literature, historiography, political science, major scientific and mathematical principles, Western drama and, notably, the Olympic Games.
