About dg.o2004
The National Science Foundation and the Digital Government Research Center (DGRC) invite you to attend dg.o2004, the 5th annual conference on digital government research. This year, we focus on:

reflecting on the practical aspects and unique opportunities presented by digital government research projects, projects that are inter-disciplinary with the collaboration of government partners,
highlighting the breadth and depth of current digital government projects, and
exploring the nature of digital government research as a new and growing research area.
Digital government research is interdisciplinary and multi-sector, with a focus on research at the intersections of computer and information sciences, IT-related social, political, and behavioral sciences, and the problems and missions of government agencies. Correspondingly, the conference attracts researchers in the varied disciplines, government agencies representatives, policy specialists, business experts, representatives from the software industry, and members of the public.
