The Digital Government Society of North America (DGSNA), with major  
support
from the US National Science Foundation, presents the 11th International
Digital Government Research Conference (dg.o 2010). The dg.o meetings  
are an
established forum for the presentation, discussion and demonstration of
interdisciplinary digital government research, technology innovation,  
and
applications. Each year the conference combines:

* Presentations of effective partnerships among government  
professionals,
university researchers, relevant businesses, and NGOs, as well as  
grassroots
citizen groups, to advance the practice of digital government.

* Research on digital government as an interdisciplinary domain that  
lies at
the intersections of computing research, social and behavioral science
research, and the problems and missions of government.

The dg.o 2010 conference theme "Public Administration Online:  
Opportunities
and Challenges" focuses on open government, information sharing,
interoperability, distributed collaboration, and massive intelligence in
government areas, as well as Web 2.0, and cloud computing. The theme
encompasses issues related to the capabilities to be provided by such
environments; user interactions and experiences with such online Digital
Government resources and environments; and, the technical infrastructure
needed to support such environments. Topics in Web 2.0 technologies,  
online
collaboration environments, user adoption and adaptation, and use of  
cloud
computing to support such environments are all relevant and pose  
interesting
scientific questions. At the same time, governments around the world  
are being
confronted with incredible challenges in privacy and policy issues,  
even as
there are trends and pressures to make these data accessible via more
platforms, e.g. mobile devices. An additional important focus area of  
the
conference is on policy issues related to the above topics.

The goal of this year's conference program is to encourage active  
discussions
between practitioners and academics in order to provide insights into  
Digital
Government issues leading to future innovations. In addition, we also  
welcome
submissions from the broader domain of digital government research. More
specifically, we invite research papers, management, policy and case  
study
papers, student research papers, on-going research posters, and live
demonstrations that address the impact of public administration  
online, use of
cloud computing, and effectiveness of social networks as transformative
technologies for G2G, G2C, C2C, and G2B interactions. We particularly
encourage submissions on interdisciplinary and crosscutting topics  
addressing
social computing in the context of broad government challenges. We also
encourage the submission of panels, 'birds-of-a-feather' discussions,  
and
pre-conference tutorials and workshops.

While the overall conference theme this year is "Public Administration
Online", topics can also include, but are not limited, to the following,

* Digital Government Application Domains: such as courts, crisis  
management,
education, emergency response, government statistics, grants  
administration,
intelligence, international initiatives and cooperation, health and  
human
services, law enforcement and criminal justice, legislative systems,  
natural
resources management, open government (o-government), regulation and
rulemaking, security, tax administration, transportation systems, and  
urban
planning.

* IT-enabled Government Management and Operations: such as cross- 
boundary
information sharing and integration, decision-making processes, digital
government organization and management strategies, information  
assurance,
information technology adoption and diffusion, IT and service  
architectures,
long-term preservation and archiving of government information, program
planning, service integration, as well as technology transition and  
transfer.

* Information Values and Policies: such as accessibility, digital  
democracy
and governance, digital divide, openness, privacy, public  
participation in
democratic processes, security, transparency, trust, and universal  
access to
information and services.
* Information Technology and Tools to Support Government: such as cloud
computing for digital government domains; collaboration tools; digital
libraries and knowledge management; geographic information systems;
human-computer interaction; intelligent agents; information integration;
interoperable data, networks and architectures; large scale data and
information acquisition and management; mobile government; multiple  
modalities
and multimedia; national and international infrastructures for  
information and
communication; service-oriented architectures; semantic web; and social
networking, mashups, and software engineering for large-scale government
projects.

* Pre-Conference Workshops (maximum of 2 pages)

Submissions must not exceed the maximum number of pages specified for  
each
type of submission in camera-ready ACM Proceedings format (double  
column,
single spaced pages). Please do not use page numbers. Paper titles  
should be
on the first page of text, rather than on a separate cover page.

* Research and Policy track papers will be reviewed through a double  
blind
review process. Therefore, author names and contact information must be
omitted from all submissions. Authors must identify the topic(s) being
addressed by the paper to assist the program committee in the review  
process.
* All other submissions should follow the same ACM proceedings camera- 
ready
format with author names on the paper.
* All accepted submissions will appear in the proceedings, and authors  
are
expected to present their work.  At least one author for each accepted  
paper
must register before the camera ready version is due in order to be  
included
in the proceedings.

Research papers (maximum 10 pages) -- blind review
These submissions report innovative digital government research  
results in the
form of a formal scholarly paper. Papers on any digital government  
topic and
all research methodologies are welcome. Relevance to digital government
problems, goals, or policies must be explicit.

Management, case study, or policy papers (maximum 6 pages) -- blind  
review
These submissions describe and evaluate practical digital government  
projects
or initiatives, discuss major policy themes, or present and evaluate
