12th National Conference on e-Governance,12th-13th February, 2009

e-Governance presents challenges and opportunities to transform both the mechanics of government, and the nature of governance itself. The big challenges are not technological but cultural. The National Conference on e-Governance has been providing a platform of meaningful interaction to policy makers, practitioners, industry leaders and academicians to deliberate, interact and recommend an actionable strategy for good governance and to improve the standard of services rendered to the common man.

At a time when many key technology and management strategies also are transforming the way government gathers, shares and gleans knowledge from the explosion of information available to policy makers and practitioners, the 12th National Conference on e-Governance based on the theme “e-Governance: Breaking Barriers, Building Bridges”, will explore how government departments are working collectively to simplify access to public information, ensure the accuracy and privacy of the information they share, and analyze large data repositories to support actionable decision-making especially at the lowest level of governance in Gram Panchayats and Municipalities.

The 12th National Conference on e-Governance is being convened at Hotel Holiday Inn, Goa, under the joint auspices of the Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances, Government of India, Department of Information Technology, Government of India and Department of Information Technology, Government of Goa.

The Holiday Inn Resort Goa is a Five Star resort located on the picturesque Mobor Beach in South Goa. Set in expansive tropical gardens that run right down to the unspoilt sands of Mobor Beach, it has been built in traditional grandeur and has been designed to blend colonial extravagance with exotic surroundings.
