***  Bringing Mobile Technologies and Government Businesses Together. ***
***  Research, Policy, and Practice Presentations - Exhibitions and Demos ***

The EURO mGOV 2005 is the first in the series of international conferences
on mobile government (ICMG -
http://www.icmg.mgovernment.org )  It aims to
be the largest platform bringing together researchers, government officials,
and practitioners from the mobility and e-government fields: technology and
its impacts on the government organizations and the society.

Similar to m-commerce or business, m-government is becoming increasingly
popular field under the e-government and mobility umbrellas. The EURO mGOV
aims to be probably the first largest mobile government gathering setting
the concepts, and providing examples of current developments from various
countries in terms of technology, applications and services. It will also
look at the issues related to the impact of mobile technologies on
government organizations and the society.

At this early stage of the organization, the EURO mGOV 2005 is receiving
continuous interests from government officials, IT and Telecom companies,
and the academia. We have managed to build a large base for  International
Program Committee of significant expertise from all around the world.

Euro mGov 2005 will have two major streams: Industrial Exhibitions/Demos and
Practice/Policy/Research presentations. The research stream will promote
discussions and exchange of ideas on significant and recent research on
Mobile Government. The industrial stream will have various exhibitions and
demos of Mobile government IT solutions, Telecom infrastructure,
applications and services. The organization puts every effort to make EURO
mGOV an "INTERACTIVE PLATFORM" for the best possible knowledge dissemination
and networking.

There will also be pre-conference tutorials on mobile technologies,
e-government, m-government, and special sessions/mini tracks on  various
areas of expertise of eGov, mobility and mGov researchers and practitioners
in the field.
