EGOV 2007 was the sixth edition of this highly successful series of annual int- national conferences dedicated to electronic government research and practice. Like all its predecessors, EGOV 2007 achieved a remarkable number of paper submissions. Moreover, the quality of this year’s submissions again superseded previous years’ submissions. For the third year in a row, the conference was anteceded by a doctoral colloquium, with approximately 20 PhD projects d- cussed. The conference also provided a forum for academic work in progress, for practitioner reports, and for workshops on specialty topics. Along with the International Conference on Digital Government Research (dg.o)intheUSA andthe e-GovernmentTrackatthe HawaiiInternationalC- ference on System Sciences (HICSS), the EGOV series of conferences has est- lished itself as the leading annual conference on e-Government, e-Participation and e-Governance in Europe, with a global reach. Last year, the ?rst two professional societies were formed in North America 1 and Europe, the Digital Government Society of North America (DGSNA) and 2 the European EGOV Society (EGOV-S) . Both sister societies work closely - gether.Itisnoteworthythatbothsocietieshaveadoptedalmostidenticalmission statements. They both de?ne themselves as multi-disciplinary organizations “of scholars and practitioners engaged in and committed to democratic digital g- ernment. Digital (or electronic) government fosters the use of information and technology to support and improve public policies and government operations, engage citizens, and provide comprehensive and timely government services”.
