*Track: *eGovernment
*Minitrack:* Cloud Computing in E-Government


The emergence of the cloud computing paradigm shifts the way information
technology (IT) is transforming service in today’s economy. Cloud computing
provides scalable access, elastic and shared computing capabilities anytime
and anywhere, and thereby requires minimum management and interaction with
service providers. It promises efficiency gains and potential cost savings,
which makes cloud solutions attractive to the public sector. However, due
to different, often more restrictive security requirements, the
implementation of cloud solutions in the public sector is different from
the private sector. To enable public sector organizations to leverage the
power of cloud computing, research is needed to address a number of issues.

Therefore, we explicitly call for full paper and research-in-progress
submissions ranging from exploratory to confirmatory work. All methods of
research are encouraged, including design science, empirical, and
theoretical research.

*Potential topics include, but are not limited to the following:*

•    Adoption of cloud-based G2C e-services by citizens
•    Implementation of cloud-based G2G applications
•    Values of cloud-based e-government service platform for government,
society and environment
•    Cloud computing in e-governance
•    Privacy and security issues of cloud computing in public sector
•    Collaborative innovation enabled by cloud computing through
public-private partnership
•    Cloud computing and e-participation
•    Cloud computing and e-democracy (e.g., enablement of secure e-voting)
•    Cloud service models (e.g., IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) in e-government
•    Cloud deployment models (e.g., public cloud, private cloud, community
cloud, hybrid cloud) in e-government
•    Best practices of cloud computing in e-government
•    Country-level comparison of cloud computing in e-government
•    Role of policymakers and IS professionals in enabling cloud computing
in public sector
•    Benefits, risks and recommendations for cloud-based information
security in e-government
•    Cases of failure of cloud computing in e-government

*Submission Process:*
