Government at all levels (federal, state, and local) and across all branches (legislative, executive, and judicial) is the biggest single investor in and user of Information Technology (IT). Given its enormously varied missions, government employs a vast range of information technology applications which have dramatically changed the way government is conducted and will continue to affect the way citizens and businesses expect government to function in the 21st century. Government is also a powerful incubator, creator, influencer, precursor, and director of information technology programs, initiatives, and trends. The creation of the Internet and the National Science Foundation's current multiyear Information Technology Research (ITR) and Digital Government programs are examples of this kind of government involvement in IT development. The close and complex relationship between information technology and the public sector has become a major focus of academic research in fields such as public administration, organizational behavior, information science, and technology innovation.

The study field of E-Government is covered by four minitracks (s-Gov-Management, e-Policy, e-Democracy, and e-Government Services), which are intended to contribute to the increased understanding of this complex and important topic and to promote improved research in these fields of study. To promote these goals, the four minitracks complement each other by establishing distinct focal points. Please read the detailed CfP under
