1st International Academic Workshop on E-Governance (EG’15)

In conjunction with the 27th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE 2015), 8-12 June 2015, Stockholm, Sweden

This presentation-oriented workshop scientifically addresses e-governance that we define as the set of electronic means for achieving the goals of an organization by performers of interrelated roles with means of service-ecosystems. Electronic means are rules, policies and processes supported by information-system infrastructures that govern the actions of collaborating participants. A service refers to a set of related software functionalities that can be reused for different purposes, together with the policies that should control its usage. Organizations may be of private, public, or non-profit nature. Currently, organizations find themselves governed by centralized governance structures that are not aligned with the dynamically changing context within which these organizations operate. As a result, the quality of service is unsatisfactory, the services are too expensive to develop and maintain. Technological innovation may serve as a catalyst for improving such deficiencies. However, there is a lack of systematic approaches for developing and interrelating services of e-governance. In addition, the current technological state of the art offers requires more attention on big data analysis, smart solutions in the Internet-of-Things, agent technologies, service-oriented cloud computing, novel business models and so on. Currently, they are underutilized for the improvement of e-governance.

The topics of interest for e-governance include, but are not limited to

- Agent-oriented modeling and simulation
- Augmented e-governance
- Big data for steering decision making
- Collaboration models and conceptual modeling
- Ecosystems and service-oriented cloud computing
- Enhancement means for participation and citizen engagement
- Enterprise architectures and best practices
- e-governance as a system of socio-technical systems
- Governmental decision-making models
- Key-performance indicators
- Legal aspects of e-governance
- Multi-modeling and multi-formalisms
- Ontologies and ontology alignment
- Open standards (-source) for interoperability
- Pervasive infrastructures
- Privacy, security and safety related to cross-service behaviour dependability
- Requirements engineering for heterogeneous systems
- Self-organizing and evolutionary e-governance
- Sociotechnical collaboration agents
- Transformational e-governance and maturity

The workshop solicits original research and practice papers on the above topics. Submitted papers will be evaluated according to their rigor, significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. All papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Full papers are not to exceed 12 LNCS pages including all references and figures. Short papers, up to 6 LNCS pages, can present new ideas and preliminary results. All papers must be prepared in the Springer LNCS format and be submitted electronically in PDF. Submit using
