Call for Workshop Position Papers 
Interaction Design for Citizen Engagement and Digital Government

Sunday, June 12, 2011 
University of Maryland, College Park

We invite participation in a workshop to be held in conjunction with the 12th Annual International Conference on Digital Government Research (dg.o 2011). The workshop focuses on the role of human-computer interaction (HCI) and user-centered design in the development and evaluation of digital government applications and information systems that support and encourage citizen engagement with government and politics.

We invite practitioners, developers, planners, government workers, citizens and others interested in user-centered approaches to digital government to submit a 1-page position statement to help guide workshop planning (submit to [log in to unmask]). Position statements should describe and take a position on an issue of broad and significant interest to likely workshop participants, and should be on a topic likely to spark creative and actionable discussion.

We hope to bring together diverse parties that might include civil servants, IT managers in government settings, developers of digital government applications, NGOs interested in citizen participation, developers and designers of ICTs for political organizing and campaigns, interaction designers and usability specialists involved in government projects, academics and researchers in the area of digital government, social network and mobile computing entrepreneurs interested in politics and activism, and others with an interest in this area.

Workshop participants will meet on Sunday, June 12 at the University of Maryland, College Park for a half-day workshop. The workshop setting is designed to encourage interaction and participation. The workshop precedes the 3-day Annual International Conference on Digital Government Research (dg.o 2011).

Position statements are accepted up to the June 5, however please note that the early conference registration date is May 15th.
