***** Proposals to be sent to:

1. Introduction

With the widespread use of social media, Web 2.0 and Cloud technologies, the societies are becoming more online and better connected. Citizens are now better able to voice their opinions and concerns, and keener than ever to participate in the functioning of their governments. General public, who have easy and sometime free access to cloud storage and social media, expect governments to be deploying the newer emerging technologies to develop e-services and integrate their information systems. With this awareness, Electronic Government (EG) that previously relied on older ICT is now making use of the newer technologies and evolving into what is often referred to as Connected Government (c-government or CG). Governments that are at a higher level of c-government maturity are successfully employing technologies such as SOA, cloud computing, web-based services and mobile media, as a way of becoming more relevant to citizens. They are already publishing accessible e-services and enabling open communication channels with their citizens. However, majority of developing nations are not as advanced; still, they are keen to deploy the newer technologies for more effective c-government, mobile government (MG) and c-governance.

The purpose of this book is twofold. Firstly, to discuss how the Web 2.0 and cloud computing technologies can be effectively used by governments to enhance the effectiveness and transparency of their functions including the provision of e-services. Secondly, to discuss how these technologies and tools can be used by the citizens to effectively access the e-services and fully participate in the affairs of the state.

2. Suggested Topics

The relevant topics include:

• Web 2.0, social media and cloud computing technologies for connected government
• E-government and m-government policies, strategies and frameworks
• E-democracy, e-voting, e-legislation and e-services using emerging technologies
• Effective use of SOA and cloud computing for connected government provision
• Privacy and protection of citizens’ data in distributed computing environments
• Conversational web, social media and mobile technologies for connected EG
• Success factors and best practices in relation to the use of newer technologies
• Challenges/opportunities in relation to the use of cloud-related technologies
• Ethical and legal issues with reference to c-government and c-governance
• E-government Case studies from developed nations and developing countries
• Government-to-government and government-to-business interactions using Web 2.0
• E-participation of citizens using social media and conversational web
• Effective provision of e-services and use of Web 2.0/social media/mobile tech
• Pre-requisites for EG implementation when using the afore mentioned technologies
• E-readiness. ICT infrastructure and training provision for citizens
• EG and c-government project initiation, planning and implementation
• EG, c-government and m-government project evaluation metrics.

It is expected that the book will comprise a number of sections. A tentative idea is as follows:

• Section 1: Technologies, Methodologies and Frameworks
• Section 2: Implementation Examples and Case Studies
• Section 3: Guidance, Recommendations and Future Directions

3. Submission Procedure

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit 1-2-page chapter proposals clearly stating the objective, scope and structure of the proposed chapters - by the deadline mentioned above. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified within two weeks (in most cases) and given guidelines for full chapter preparation. Completed chapters should be approximately 10,000 words or 20-30 pages in length – longer chapters will also be acceptable. Full chapters will be reviewed following a double-blind peer review process to ensure relevance, quality, originality and high information content. IGI’s e-editorial discovery system will be used for most the chapter development and submission processes. In the first instance, 1-2-page chapter proposals, as WORD files, should be sent to:

4. Important Dates

• Chapter proposals due date: 10 November 2019
• Notification of acceptance: within 2 weeks of receipt of proposals
• Full chapters due date: within 6 weeks of acceptance notification
• Chapter reviews feedback: within 6 weeks of chapter due date
• Revised chapters due date: within 3 weeks of review feedback
