::: dg.o2006 :::
The DGRC annually organizes and hosts the National Conference on Digital Government Research. Next year's conference is to be held May 21-24 in southern California. Details
For a look at the depth and breadth of the fast-growing digital government research discipline, please see the proceedings of past conferences:
dg.o2005 Theme: "Emerging Trends"
This year, we focus on:
- the nature of digital government research as a new interdisciplinary field that spans computer science and social science
- the breadth and depth of current digital government projects
- the unique partnership of university researchers and government partners
- outcomes and impacts of digital government research in the public sector
Digital government research is interdisciplinary and multi-sector, with a focus on research at the intersections of computer and information sciences, social, political, and behavioral sciences, and the problems and missions of government agencies. Digital government research addresses problems in government in all sectors and at any scale -- local, regional, national, and transnational. We invite researchers in relevant disciplines, government agency representatives, policy specialists, industry experts, and members of the public to attend and participate in the many activities of this conference.
The 2005 National Conference on Digital Government Research includes paper sessions, panels, demonstrations and poster sessions, and field trips. The 2005 conference continues its tradition of showcasing exemplary NSF digital government research projects through the project highlights presentations. It continues the Birds-of-a-Feather sessions, which promote informal discussions on emerging digital government topics. The conference also includes a student-led mini-conference featuring research papers authored solely by students and reviewed by a student program committee.
