This minitrack offers a multidisciplinary forum to present cases and discuss theories associated with the design, implementation, management, and evaluation of digital government. The minitrack invites submissions that contribute to the analysis and discussion of the impact of digital government on public sector, especially on the organization of government activities, the delivery of public services, and on the value these services deliver.
We invite and encourage the submission of case studies which demonstrate best practices in the design, management, and evaluation of digital government policies and strategies. In addition, the minitrack welcomes contributions exploring the issues associated with the design and deployment of policies and strategies that change the nature of the interactions between government and citizens, private sector organizations, and NGOs.
