ICT innovations such as Big Data, Internet of Things, Cloud Computing as well as Intelligent Systems employed in e-Government services raise issues relating to Security, Privacy and Data Protection. Governments want to integrate more services and enhance participation, but they have to convince the users that they can be trusted. At the same time e-Government services need to improve their efficiency and to do so they need to reengineer their back office processes, to support them with intelligent systems, but also improve openness, collaboration and citizen participation. This last point can be hugely enhanced by offering citizens participation in devolved decision making and e-voting facilities for elections. Such services are often quoted as being dependent on political will, but are the systems and services ready? Are they privacy-friendly and secure to withstand attacks and malicious or even terrorist activities in cyberspace? Are they trustworthy to be embraced by the citizens in a digital world that is moving fast and becoming more intelligent? And finally, where should be drawn the “golden line” between anonymity and confidentiality, and accountability and certification?

These are the questions and the focus of the 7th occasion of the International Conference on e-Democracy that will be held in Athens, the cradle of democracy, on December 14-15, 2017. The conference is organized by the Scientific Council for the Information Society, in co- operation with the Hellenic Data Protection Authority and a number of European and Greek Universities, Academia and Research. It is intended, similarly to previous occasions, to provide a forum for presenting and debating the latest developments in the field, from a technical, political, legal and regulatory point of view.

The conference will include keynote addresses, tutorials, panels, Ph.D. colloquia and sessions, workshops, special, regular and poster sessions. All submitted papers to the conference will be peer reviewed, while acceptance will be based on quality, relevance, and originality. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and selected papers will be invited to participate (after the necessary enhancements) to the evaluation process for inclusion in special issues of peer-reviewed journals.

The working language of the 7th International Conference on “e-Democracy 2017: Privacy-Preserving, Secure, Intelligent e-Government Services”
e-Government Services” is English. It is possible though, that Greek Law cases on e- Democracy issues can be presented in Greek.
