Welcome to CeDEM18!

The Centre for E-Governance at the Danube University Krems has been organising conferences on e-democracy and public administration since 2007: the E-democracy Conference Series began in 2007, and the CeDEM, first presented in 2011, represents the development and continuation of the conference series. Since  2014, CeDEM is also held biennially in Asia (CeDEM Asia).


We invite individuals from academic and applied backgrounds as well as business, public authorities, NGOs, NPOs and education institutions to submit their papers, reflections as well as workshop proposals to the topics addressed in the tracks. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches to the conference topics.


Full papers are peer-reviewed in a double-blind process and if accepted, are published by the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and available online on IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Workshop proposals, PhD colloquium papers and reflections that have been submitted and selected by the chairs are published by Edition Donau-Universität Krems and available online according to Open Access principles.


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.

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 Colloquium 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..

We look forward to seeing you at CeDEM18!
Peter Parycek (Conference Chair)
