Knowledge Management in Electronic Government (KMGov2002)

Copenhagen, Denmark, May 23– 24, 2002

jointly organised by:
Roskilde University, Copenhagen, DK
University of Linz, Austria
IFIP WG 8.3 (Decision Support Systems) & WG 8.5 (Infomation Systems in
Public Administration)

Workshop Theme:
The workshop will continue the second workshop on the topic in Siena,
Italy, held in May 2001. Electronic Government (e-Government) is as a
powerful guiding vision for the transformation which governments and
public administrations have to undergo in the next decades. It is the
striking success of the Internet and e-Commerce that promise profound
change to the public sector: improving the communication with the
citizens, redesigning co-operation within and between governmental
agencies, and supporting complex administrative decision making. All
these changes need and urge an essential redistribution of knowledge.
The challenge for e-Government is to find a successful way of
re-engineering and distributing the administration’s knowledge.
Distributed knowledge becomes the key question of successful
re-organisation and so, knowledge management becomes of prime concern.
The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners from
different research disciplines to discuss the many perspectives and
aspects influencing knowledge management for e-Government. These
perspectives need to be integrated in a comprehensive approach to
develop e-Government strategies and systems.
We ask for contributions which may address theoretical, methodological
or practical aspects of distributed knowledge and knowledge management
in public administration. In specific, we encourage you to address
issues like:
- e-Government as a challenge for public administration
- the various fields of knowledge in e-Government
- specific concepts of knowledge management for the public sector
- transparency of knowledge & knowledge management in e-Government and
- relationship between knowledge management and e-Government; what is
the common theoretical grounding for knowledge management in
- (alternative) design concepts and practices for government and virtual

- case studies and best practice experiences on distributed knowledge
and knowledge management in e-Government
- technical aspects on knowledge flow and information retrieval in
- human factors and usability issues in knowledge management for
- CSCW, Groupware and other knowledge management tools supporting
knowledge working communities in the public sector
- studies on the impact/disclosure of powerful knowledge management
tools/systems in public administration
- studies on cost/benefit of knowledge management in the public sector
- evaluation means, quality measures and feasibility studies on
knowledge management systems
- cultural, social and political issues on knowledge management in
- transformation of software into e-Government services (ASP, etc.)
