This year's Conference for e-Democracy and Open Government (CeDEM16) will take place in Krems, Austria, on 18-20 May. The three-day programme features four keynotes, six workshops, and a new panel on 'Co-Creation'.
Other highlights include 25 full paper presentations, a reflections session, and a PhD colloquium. In the Open Space, participants can organise their own presentations, workshops, birds of a feather sessions, events, meetings, and so on in a BarCamp style. On the second day of the conference, the winner of the Best Paper Prize will be announced.
The international Conference for e-Democracy and Open Government brings together eDemocracy, eParticipation and open government specialists working in academia, politics, government and business to critically analyse the innovations, issues, ideas and challenges in the networked societies of the digital age.
These conferences have been organised by the Centre for E-Governance at the Danube University Krems since 2007. CeDEM is also held biennially in Asia, this year on 7-9 December in Daegu, South Korea.
