Electronic Government Track
E-Government Emerging Topics
Since e-Government is a nascent academic field, its structure is still evolving. While initial emphases wither, new directions of practice and research are forming. Whereas some new trends in technology and management cut across existing perspectives, other new topics may have the potential to become a subfield in their own right. Furthermore, the research foundations of the field still need to be spelled out more explicitly and rigorously. New data is badly needed. More new topics and trends are emerging in e-Government, for which it may be difficult to locate a nurturing home in one of the existing minitracks within the e-Gov Track at HICSS. Therefore, the e-Government Emerging Topics minitrack provides a home for incubating those new topics and trends. Topics and research areas include but are not limited to:
  • The conceptual and practice-based boundaries of the field of e-Government
  • Agendas for e-Government research
  • Research methodologies for the study of e-Government
  • he nature of inter and multidisciplinary research designs in e-Government
  • Differences and similarities between e-Government, PMIS and MIS research
  • Mobile Government: Challenges, opportunities, standards, and protocols
  • Mobile voice/data integration
  • Mobile to legacy/non-mobile application integration
  • Web 2.0 in government
  • Data-driven public policy and decision -making
  • e-Voting experience and issues
  • Gov’t role in open-source
  • Archiving and Preservation for small organizations
  • IT, government, and an aging population
  • Others as appropriate to the purposes of the mini-track
