about the symposium

This conference brings together stakeholders from academia, government, and the private sector in a symposium format to better understand next generation government issues from interdisciplinary perspectives in technology, education, government, and law. No longer can siloed approaches suffice for responding to society’s problems. Collaborative visions for the next generation of technology and architecture ensure not only the public sector’s delivery of e-services and participating citizens but securing the healthy operation of the nation-state itself.

NB! This symposium is open for paper submissions by Masters and PhD students relevant to the topics below:
