I am on the program committee for the CEDEM conference and this is their call for papers.


Conference for E-Democracy and Open Government
DEADLINE for Submission: 1 December 2010

CeDEM11 presents the following Tracks:


with co-chairs:  Julia Glidden (21C Consulting, UK) and Jeremy Millard (Danish Technological Institute, DK)


with co-chairs:  Philipp Müller (University of Salzburg, Business School, AT) and Axel Bruns (Queensland University of Technology, AUS)

with co-chair:  Andy Williamson (Hansard Society, UK)

During the last 10 years, the world has focused on social media and the new forms of societal behaviour, including content generation, collaboration and sharing as well as network organisation. These behaviours and expectations, in particular transparency and access to data, new ways of interacting with government and democratic institutions will continue to develop, and profound changes in society are to be expected. Society has been confronted with Open Government, Open Data and Open Access. What have the experiences been so far? How do these impact society, democratic structures and organisations? What changes occur at citizen level? What are the implications for democracy, society, science and business?

DEADLINE for Submissions: 1 December 2010

We would like to invite individuals from academic, applied and practitioner backgrounds as well as public authorities, NGO/NPOs, education institutions and independent organisations to submit their research and project papers as well as workshop proposals related to the CeDEM11 Tracks.  We welcome different multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches and disciplines including (but not limited to): law & legal studies, social sciences, computer sciences, political sciences, psychology, sociology, applied computer gaming and simulation, democratic theory, media and communication sciences.
