Information Society and eGovernment in USA

/ Keynote

Funding specifically for e-government research in the US began in 1999 when the National Science Foundation created the Digital Government Research Program.  Since then, this program and associated ones have provided over $20 million to university researchers working in collaboration with government agencies at various levels.  The DG Research Program is scheduled to continue for at least another two years.  This amount of funding has led to the creation of at least 3 prominent centers of research in the field at US universities and to several international collaborations.

This presentation will survey the history, current situation and future directions of e-government research in the US that is being performed with the support of the Federal government and several large states. 

In addition the presentation will survey current non-research-related e-government initiatives at the Federal level.
