CALL FOR CASES Proposal Submission Deadline: March 15, 2009 Full Case Submission Deadline: June 15, 2009 Cases on Adoption, Diffusion and Evaluation of Global E-Governance Systems: Impact at the Grass Roots A book edited by Dr. Hakikur Rahman, ICMS, Bangladesh To be published by IGI Global: http://www.igi-global.com/requests/details.asp?ID=598 This publication is part of the Advances in Electronic Government Research (AEGR) Book Series found at http://www.igi-global.com/aegr Introduction Generally, e-government refers to the use of new ICTs by governments applied to the full range of government functions. In a broad sense, e-government is the use of information technology to provide citizens and organizations with more convenient access to government information and services, and offer delivery of public services to citizens, business partners, and others who are working in the public sector. E-governance is a network of organizations to incorporate government, non-government, profit, nonprofit, not-for-profit and private sector entities. In e-governance there are no distinct boundaries. The model for e-governance could be a one-stop portal, where citizens have access to a variety of information and services. Overall Objective of the Book Most of the e-government systems at the early stages are being built to exactly mimic the age-old conventional systems, and virtually computerize the traditional methods and procedures. Electronic solutions are merely implanted into government offices without looking into the transformational aspects (mental, organizational, physical, logical, cultural, working style, etc.) and are not providing the entire eco-system for long-term sustenance. This book will accommodate cases related to theories, issues and methodologies for designing, implementing and operating successful e-government systems. This book will cover a variety of services and applications across the globe that have been improving the overall governance of nations and economies. This book will be concise in synthesizing the theoretical analysis, focus more to pragmatic implementations, and emphasize on effective e-government systems for better implementation at the grass roots. Target Audience Being a casebook on e-government, this book will try to cover other aspects of the e-society, such as e-learning, e-business, e-procurement, e-commerce, e-payment, e-health, e-democracy, e-voting, e-police, and other e-applications and e-services. Therefore, this book will be useful to development partners, policy makers, government and non-government staffs, knowledge managers, researchers, academics and individuals. Recommended topics for case studies include, but are not limited to, the following: - Laws, jurisdictions, policy matters related to e-government - Benchmarking of e-government system - Designing of e-government systems - Adoption of appropriate solutions and utilities - Assessment of e-government policies and systems - Comprehensive analysis of e-government implementations - Performance and effectiveness measurement of e-government systems - Incorporation of decision supports tools - Learning and Knowledge development - Economic empowerment, Social empowerment, and Sustainable development - Recommendations on Benchmarking and its algorithms Submission Procedure Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before March 15, 2009, a 2-3 page case proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed case.
