The European Science Foundation (ESF) has established the program
TOWARDS ELECTRONIC DEMOCRACY
(TED) with the overall objectives:
- To discuss and evaluate how advances of interactive
decision-analytic tools might help develop e-Democracy.
- To develop e-Government systems which involve their citizens more
fully in the public decision making process.
As part of this program, a conference on interdisciplinary methods
and techniques related to the TED program is being held in
Bozen-Bolzano in Spring 2005. The conference aims at addressing a
large spectrum of issues that are relevant and have to be investigated
for a successful transition from the traditional form of government to
a new form known as e-Government. The conference has a strong
interdisciplinary character and aims to bring together people from
different sectors, including researchers, technology providers,
administrative staff, and politicians.
The conference is jointly organized by:
