Digital transformations are radically affecting the activities of governments across the globe in a wide variety of ways, including the digitalization of public agency organizations, government service provision, and citizen engagement. New and disruptive digital phenomena are beginning to challenge well-established assumptions on the role of the public sector, and on how it provides societal value. These phenomena include, for example, the emergence of Artificial Intelligence applications, algorithmic governance, big and open data analytics, blockchain, and the Internet of Things. Yet, the age old problems of implementation, adoption and diffusion continue to plague digital government initiatives across the word. This track welcomes research on the multiple dimensions of transformations in digital government, or e-government. We invite studies on the design, management, and implementation of Information Systems in the unique public sector setting that can help unearth the novel challenges that e-government research is facing. Papers that can combine methodological rigor with practical relevance are particularly welcome.
