CTG participates in ICEGOV2009
November 10-13, 2009 | Bogotá, Colombia
The 3rd International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV2009), took place in Bogotá, Colombia. Theresa A. Pardo, director, served on the ICEGOV2009 Advisory Board and Sharon S. Dawes, senior fellow, sat on the ICEGOV2009 Awards Committee. The goal of ICEGOV is to share the latest findings in the theory and practice of Electronic Governance from a multi-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder, and community-oriented approach. During the 2009 conference, CTG staff made several presentations sharing the Center’s research. Dawes jointly conducted a tutorial session on e-governance policy, with CTG visiting scholar Evgeny Styrin, and Pardo conducted a workshop on collaboration and information sharing. Two papers were also presented by CTG alumnus Lei Zheng, currently at Fudan University, and Santiago Guerrero, a UAlbany Rockefeller College PhD student.

Better reporting technology an unexpected byproduct of stimulus
"New York's agencies, including the state departments of health, education and transportation, submitted their own reports. Several of the officials who managed the reporting, which involved collecting details from subrecipients such as vendors and local governments, shared best practices on Friday at a forum in Albany."
"In addition, other New York agencies had to rely on less sophisticated technology, including spreadsheets and e-mail, to exchange information with subrecipients, said researchers at the Center for Technology in Government at the State University of New York at Albany. The center hosted Friday's event and is studying the use of state and local technology resources to manage recovery reporting."

The pre-conference sessions provide unique opportunities for researchers and government officials to interact intensely around a critical digital government domain. Individuals proposing workshops will assume the responsibility of identifying and selecting participants for the workshop and for conducting workshop activities. Tutorials are half- or full-day presentations offering deeper insight into the scientific or government domains, research topics or methods, technologies or field experiences of veteran digital government researchers and practitioners. Conveners of successful tutorials will receive a $500 stipend.
