US-China International Workshop on Digital Government Research and Practice
October 11-13, 2006
The first US-China International Workshop on Digital Government Research and Practice (IntDG 2006) was held in Beijing on October 11 - 13, 2006. The objective was to create an intellectual forum for digital government researchers in the U.S. and China to exchange research ideas; foster collaboration; and explore collaborative opportunities between the professional DG societies from both countries. The workshop focused on four panels: city government and services, environment, public health, and international digital government research and societies.
Sharon Dawes, director of CTG, and Lei Zheng, a Public Administration Ph.D student at Rockefeller College and Graduate Assistant at CTG, attended as members of the U.S. delegation. Sharon served as one of the Honorary Co-Chairs of the workshop, which was organized by Prof. Daniel Zeng of the University of Arizona and Valerie Gregg of the Information Sciences Institute of USC. Sharon chaired the government practitioner panel and presented the results of a comparative study of new models of collaboration for delivering government services.
About 20 digital government researchers from the U.S., China and U.K. presented their work. Funding agency representatives from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NNSFC) also gave presentations aimed at promoting collaboration between both countries. IntDG 2006 also featured a government roundtable discussion with participation from three Chinese officials and two U.S. officials, including Norman Jacknis, CIO of Westchester County, NY.
Digital government (DG) research is rapidly maturing. However, DG research has been typically confined within national boundaries, resulting in the lack of comparative and transnational understanding. There is a critical need for DG researchers and practitioners from different countries to share their findings and lessons learned, and ultimately to form a global community with a core set of common principles and methodologies to promote the further advancement of the field and practice. This workshop was one such effort supported by NSF to facilitate and encourage transnational collaborations.
