CFP: Social and Mobile Media for Governance « Digital Government & Society

The International Conference on e-Democracy and Open Government-Asia 2012 (CeDEM-Asia-2012) is a forum that aims to bring together academics, researchers, policy-makers, industry professionals, and civil society activists to discuss the role of social and mobile media in the future of governance in Asia and elsewhere. CeDEM-Asia-2012 will be held on November 14-15 in Singapore.

Call for Papers

New means of interacting with government and political institutions are causing significant shifts in political and social life. The emerging social and mobile media practices, including content generation, collaboration, and network organization, are changing our understanding of governance and politics. While the changes are already widely debated in mature, developed democracies, there is an even greater need to address them in the context of rapidly developing Asian societies. Following five successful conferences at the Danube University of Krems, CeDEM is looking to open a new forum in Asia for the exchange of ideas, networking, and collaboration on the topics of e-democracy and open government. This year, CeDEM is pleased to be working with the Asian Media Information and Communication Centre (AMIC) as its conference organizer and the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore as its main partner. CeDEM-Asia-2012 seeks to critically analyze present and future developments in field, with a special focus on the following themes:

  • Social media to engage citizens, smart & mobile democracy, sustainability of e-participation
  • Mobilization via social media, networks vs. traditional party-structure, online campaigning
  • Communication technologies and their use for governmental transformation
  • Open data initiatives, transparency, participation and collaboration in government
  • Cultures of governance, access and openness, crowdsourcing for government
  • Information provision, mobile devices, service delivery via new communication channels
  • Online communities, innovation, bottom-up vs. top-down
  • Network effects, power laws, long tail, social web

Conference Chairs

  • Nojin Kwak (University of Michigan, USA)
  • Peter Parycek (Danube University Krems, Austria)
  • Marko M. Skoric (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore)

Submission Guidelines

The submission portal will be open mid June 2012.

  • Research papers, case studies and policy papers should be 12 pages maximum and will be double-blind peer-reviewed.
  • Reflection papers should 6 pages maximum and will be selected by the chairs.
  • Workshop proposals should be no more than 2 pages and will be selected by the chairs.

Publications

The conference proceedings will be published (ISBN) and made available online under the Creative Commons License. A selection of best research papers and case studies of CeDEM-Asia-2012 will be published with the open access eJournal of eDemocracy and Open Government .

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline for full papers and workshop proposals: 15 July 2012
  • Notification of acceptance: 24 September 2012
  • Camera-ready paper submission: 15 October 2012
