The CeDEM offers a PhD Colloquium in cooperation with the Danube University Krems’ Platform for Political Communication and netPOL (www.netpol.at). The PhD Colloquium provides PhD students the opportunity to present their work and gain feedback from experts as well as meet other PhD students. Students from any stage of their PhD are invited to submit their work and invited to apply for the CeDEM PhD Bursary.
The CeDEM also provides an Open Space, where participants can democratically choose and organise in a barcamp style their own presentations, workshops, birds of a feather, events, meetings etc..
Full papers submitted are peer-reviewed in a double-blind process. These are published with IEEE Proceedings. Workshop proposals, PhD colloquium papers and reflections that have been submitted and selected by the chairs are also published in the Proceedings published by Edition Donau-Universität Krems.
Authors of the best peer-reviewed papers will be asked to re-submit their revised and extended papers for the autumn issue of the Centre for E-Governance’s Open Access eJournal of eDemocracy and Open Government (www.jedem.org).
Since 2014, the CeDEM conference presents the author/s of the best paper with the “CeDEM Best Paper Award”. Papers are nominated for this award by the reviewers during the peer-review process, the best paper is then selected by the CeDEM’s track directors.
Authors are expected to present their papers at the conference!
