Over the years the international EGOV conferences have gained the reputation of presenting and representing the current status of e-Government research. In a sense, the EGOV conference series provides a log for the unfolding of this particular domain of study and practice. This ?fth EGOV conference promises to be as special and as unique a milestone as its four predecessors. Every past conference marked a speci?c major accomplishment: The ?rst conference at A- en-Provence,France,establishedtheconferenceanditsformatwithintheDEXA cluster of conferences. The second conference in Prague, the Czech Republic, saw a drastically increased number of submissions, and many more scholars - came involved in a decentralized paper review process. The third conference in Zaragoza, Spain, witnessed another increase in submissions from around the world (among which were also a higher number of contributions from North America)leadingtoanincreasedattentiontothemanydi?erent?avorsofgov- nanceande-Governmentaroundtheworld. The2005conferenceinCopenhagen, Denmark, with an increased volume (again) established a rigorous double-blind review process and also introduced the distinction between full (and ?nished) research papers (published in Springer’sLecture Notes in Computer Science), on the one hand, and posters, work in progress, as well as workshops (published by Trauner Druck, Linz, Austria), on the other hand. Also, a pre-conference PhD colloquium was added to the schedule. The Copenhagen conference was instrumental in greatly furthering the - search collaboration between Europe-based researchers and scholars from other parts of the world.
