Kalender-Icon CeDEM11 – Conference for E-Democracy and Open Government

Ort: Danube University Krems, Dr.-Karl-Dorrek-Straße 30, 3500 Krems an der Donau
Donnerstag, 5. Mai 2011 09:00 bis Freitag, 6. Mai 2011 17:00

CeDEM11 brings together e-democracy, e-participation, e-voting and open government specialists working in academia, politics, government and businesses.

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?
