ICEGOV is a series of International Conferences on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance taking place annually around the world. The conference is coordinated by the United Nations University Operating Unit on Policy-Driven Electronic Governance (UNU-EGOV), based in the city of Guimarães, Portugal. It is a continuation of the work started by the Center for Electronic Governance at UNU-IIST, which was based in Macau.
The conference focuses on the use of technology to transform the working of government and its relationships with citizens, businesses, and other non-state actors in order to improve public governance and its contribution to public policy and development (EGOV). It also promotes the interaction and cooperation between universities, research centres, governments, industries, and non-governmental organizations needed to develop the EGOV community. It is supported by a rich program of keynote lectures, plenary sessions, papers presentations within the thematic sessions, invited sessions, and networking sessions.
