ICEGOV2016 will explore how digital technology can contribute to inclusive and sustainable human development which are at the core of the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. UNESCO’s work on building knowledge societies, the priorities of the intergovernmental Information for All Programme (IFAP), various Internet-related studies and its contributions to WSIS will all serve to inform these debates and the development of research agendas, policies and action plans.
The series of International Conferences on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV) brings together governments, academia, the United Nations system and other international organizations, the civil society, and the private sector to share the insights and experiences in theory and practice of Electronic Governance. ICEGOV promotes interactions between different groups of stakeholders, from policy-makers, government officials and elected representatives, to researchers, innovators and educators from developing and developed countries, all sharing a common concern that public investment in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Electronic Governance (EGOV) create public value. ICEGOV is a platform for such stakeholders to discuss effective ways to working together across the national, thematic, development, political and other borders towards addressing common concerns.
