CTG Scholars Recognized as Ranking Members of the Digital Government Community

Theresa Pardo, Anthony M. Cresswell, Sharon Dawes, and J. Ramon Gil Garcia were recently ranked in the top ten of scholars in the field of digital government. The area of digital government research is a relatively young field compared to other well established disciplines. Yet, according to a new research paper, approximately 300 peer-reviewed articles have been produced per year since 2004. The paper's author, Hans J. (Jochen) Scholl, associate professor, Information Science, University of Washington, notes that "for a young domain of study, this is a remarkably high output volume."

CTG to Work with UAlbany to Develop Pioneering Curricula in Financial Market Regulation

UAlbany's Center for Financial Market Regulation (CFMR) has received a grant of $800,000 to create materials that will be freely available for educators and others to use, through case studies, modules, and a series of courses to help students develop computational thinking skills in financial market supervision and beyond. As a co-principal investigator on this grant, Theresa Pardo, CTG Director, will bring knowledge of the use of technology in government to the development of the curricula.

New dg.o 2010 Doctoral Consortium | Now Accepting Applications

dg.o 2010 will hold its first doctoral consortium at this year's conference in Puebla, Mexico on Monday, May 17, 2010. Participation is limited to 12-15 students. The program includes brief faculty presentations, opportunities for all students to give short presentations of their work for extensive feedback in small group discussions, and informal discussion and networking.

We welcome applicants from a broad range of research areas relevant to digital government. Ideally, student participants will have completed one or two years of doctoral study or progressed far enough in their research to have a structured proposal idea and perhaps some preliminary findings, but have not reached the stage of defending their dissertations.

To learn more about how to apply and about the conference, visit: >> The application materials for the Doctoral Collquium are due on February 15, 2010.
