The International Conference on e-Democracy and Open Government-Asia 2012 

The International Conference on e-Democracy and Open Government-Asia 2012
(CeDEM-Asia-2012) is a forum that aims to bring together academics, researchers, policy-makers, industry professionals, and civil society activists to discuss the role of social and mobile media in the future of governance in Asia and elsewhere. CeDEMAsia-
2012 will be held on November 14-15 in Singapore.

Call for Papers
New means of interacting with government and political institutions are causing significant shifts in political and social life. The emerging social and mobile media practices, including content generation, collaboration, and network organization, are changing our understanding of governance and politics. While the changes are already widely debated in mature, developed democracies, there is an even greater need to address them in the context of rapidly developing Asian societies. Following five successful conferences at the Danube University of Krems, CeDEM is looking to open a
new forum in Asia for the exchange of ideas, networking, and collaboration on the topics of e-democracy and open government. This year, CeDEM is pleased to be working with the Asian Media Information and Communication Centre (AMIC) as its conference organizer and the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore as its main partner. CeDEM-Asia-2012 seeks to critically analyze present and future developments in field, with a special focus on the following themes:

Social media to engage citizens, smart & mobile democracy, sustainability of eparticipation

Mobilization via social media, networks vs. traditional party-structure, online
campaigning

Communication technologies and their use for governmental transformation

Open data initiatives, transparency, participation and collaboration in government

Cultures of governance, access and openness, crowdsourcing for government

Information provision, mobile devices, service delivery via new communication
channels

Online communities, innovation, bottom-up vs. top-down

Network effects, power laws, long tail, social web
