Track: Electronic Government
Minitrack: e-Services and Information
Citizens have come to expect and demand governmental services matching private-sector services in every aspect of quality, quantity, and availability. E-Government services poses numerous challenges in terms of interoperability of services, design of services in use, optimization of process chains, identification and assessment of the value-chain of services, cross-organizational service chains, workflow support of e-services, integration of internal IT support, G2G and G2C e-services, outsourcing of services, digital preservation, electronic records management, etc. At the same time, governments are struggling to meet expectations especially under intensified pressure to reduce costs and reduce budgets. As a result, research to guide the development, management and evaluation of e-Government services is in great demand in this important and rapidly growing domain of inquiry. The Minitrack seeks research papers and practitioner reports addressing the characteristics, development, implementation, uses, and evaluation of e-Government services and systems.

Topics and research areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Citizens' expectations, and acceptance on e-Government services across government levels and branches

  • Impacts of the e-Government services

  • Service modeling, optimization and analysis

  • Value assessment of e-Government services

  • Success factors for e-Government services development and implementation

  • The willingness of citizens to share personal information with the government electronically

  • Challenges and/or recommendations for increasing citizen trust of e-Government

  • Opportunities and challenges of e-Government mobile services

  • Business process analysis, value-chain analysis and change requirements for e-Government services

  • IT-based procedures, workflow support, protocols, and schemes used for government services

  • Development and maintenance issues of government portals

  • Access to governmental documents and records, including legal, policy, and technical implications, program models, and case studies

  • Electronic record management and archiving
