Where possible, topics that are known to be of direct interest to remote participants have been given early slots on the agenda.
The W3C eGovernment Interest Group was chartered in June of 2008 recognizing that governments throughout the World needed assistance and guidance in achieving the promises of electronic government through technology and the Web. An updated charter was issued in June 2011.
The group and its efforts fill a distinct gap in the Web and technology standards space focusing on the unique and diverse needs and issues that governments throughout the developed and developing World face in enabling electronic service and information delivery and providing opportunities for discovery, interaction and participation.
This meeting will bring together government officials, computer scientists, civic activists, and academics specializing in both technical and legal eGovernment issues, leaders in the Web standards community, as well as a wide range of companies providing products and services in the government marketplace.
Purpose of the Meeting
The Group will be creating a resource of government data examples, standards, and policies in the areas of
- Government data
- Social media
- Community directory
- Education and outreach
- Data licensing
Sessions on open discussion following a provocation/reflection/action approach:
- Provocation of challenges in establishing and sustaining eGovernment activities
- Analyze how those could be addressed and examples of success
- Create actions that the Group should take to be most effective
(Please note that breaks and meals are on the participant's own)
