1. INTRODUCTION---

As the post2015 United Nations development agenda to guide the worldcommunity in the pursuit of inclusive and sustainable development isshaping up, a broad agreement is emerging that accountable publicgovernance is a key enabler to such development, and that digitaltechnology, by empowering citizens with access to vast amounts ofgovernance- and policy-related data and the means to analyze andinterpret such data, is a key enabler to accountable publicgovernance.

The main purpose of ICEGOV2014 is to explore research andpolicy implications and discuss way forward for technology-enabled anddata-intensive public governance in the post-2015 world.The series of International Conferences on Theory and Practice ofElectronic Governance (ICEGOV) brings together governments, academia,the United Nations (UN) system and other international organizations,civil society and the private sector to share the insights andexperiences in theory and practice of Electronic Governance. ICEGOVpromotes interactions between different groups of stakeholders, frompolicy-makers, government officials and elected representatives, toresearchers, innovators and educators from developing and developedcountries, all sharing a common concern that public investment inInformation and Communication Technology (ICT) and ElectronicGovernance (EGOV) creates public value. ICEGOV creates a forum forsuch stakeholders to discuss effective ways to working together acrossthe national, thematic, development, political and other boarderstowards addressing this concern.

Following earlier conferences in Macao (ICEGOV2007), Cairo(ICEGOV2008), Bogota (ICEGOV2009), Beijing (ICEGOV2010), Tallinn(ICEGOV2011), Albany (ICEGOV2012) and Seoul (ICEGOV2013), the ICEGOVconference series has become a source of significant research andpolicy events, able to reach to global and multi-stakeholderaudiences. On average, every ICEGOV conference attracts 136submissions from 51 countries and is attended by over 400 participantsfrom more than 50 developed and developing countries includingrepresentatives from government (40%), academia (36%), industry andcivil society (14%), and international and UN system organizations(10%).----------------------------------------------------------------------
