In Wien findet vom 7. bis 8.9. die EDem09-Konferenz über elektronische Demokratie statt.
There are a number of eDemocracy applications, ranging from transparency sites and information, discussion, deliberation and consultation platforms to decision-making and voting systems, thus encompassing the entire democratic process. As technical devices have matured and feasibility is largely not considered an issue any more, other questions are now considered:
- To what extent can eDemocracy support and enrich our democracy?
- What and where are the interfaces, what methods can be used to integrate eParticipation in present public administration processes?
- How can we ensure that the greatest number of people are reached and are able to use the means of participation?
- How can the modern media support political education?
- How can the Internet increase participation in political discussion?
- What are the limitations and the risks of eDemocracy?
- How may traditional Decision Support Systems be included in the eDemocracy framework?
- How may microeconomic models (eg, game theory) contribute to the understanding of the dynamics created by electronic citizen involvement?
