Across its tracks, the dual IFIP EGOV/ePart 2015 conference hosts three distinct formats of contributions:

• Completed research papers (max. 12 pages, published in the IFIP EGOV proceedings of Springer LNCS)
• Ongoing research and innovative projects (max. 8 pages, published in alternate proceedings by IOS Press)

Beyond the tracks, the dual IFIP EGOV—ePart 2015 conference also hosts

• Posters (max. 2 pages), to be exposed along the welcome reception on Tuesday evening and included in the alternate proceedings
• Workshops and panels on pertinent issues, short abstracts (2 pages) to be included in the alternate proceedings, and
• PhD colloquium submissions (max. 8 pages)

all to be included in the alternate proceedings by IOS Press.

These formats encourage both, scientific rigor and discussions of innovative research approaches, work in progress, and studies of practical e-Government, e-Governance or e-Participation projects along with papers on system implementations.

Prior to the conference (that is, on Sunday and/or Monday, August 30 and 31), a PhD student colloquium will be held providing doctoral students with an international forum guided by senior scholars for presenting their work, networking opportunities and cross-disciplinary inspiration.
