Call For Papers

Short description and goals
This presentation-oriented workshop scientifically addresses emerging and disruptive information technology in the role for enhancing the transparency of e-governance services, specifically in the field of blockchain technology use for cross-organizational collaboration. 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 information-technological context within which these organizations operate. As a result, the quality of service is unsatisfactory, the services are too expensive to develop and maintain. Blockchain-technological innovation may serve as a catalyst for improving such deficiencies by establishing decentralised, distributed, disintermediated and disruptively immutable traceability in e-governance.

Currently, we lack systematic approaches for developing and interrelating blockchain-technology based services for e-governance. Thus, the workshop aims at exploring systematic approaches for developing and interrelating blockchain-technology supported services as well as increasing issues concerning blockchain-tech enabled security and privacy of personal data use in e-governance. In addition, technological advances in the field of big data analysis, blockchains for distributed application deployment, smart contracts, the Internet-of-Things, agent technologies, etc., offer new research directions in the blockchain-technology space for further improvements of existing solutions.
