ICT innovations such as Big Data, Internet of Things, Cloud Computing as well as Intelligent Systems employed in e-Government services raise issues relating to Security, Privacy and Data Protection. Governments want to integrate more services and enhance participation, but they have to convince the users that they can be trusted. At the same time e-Government services need to improve their efficiency and to do so they need to reengineer their back office processes, to support them with intelligent systems, but also improve openness, collaboration and citizen participation. This last point can be hugely enhanced by offering citizens participation in devolved decision making and e-voting facilities for elections. Such services are often quoted as being dependent on political will, but are the systems and services ready? Are they privacy-friendly and secure to withstand attacks and malicious or even terrorist activities in cyberspace? Are they trustworthy to be embraced by the citizens in a digital world that is moving fast and becoming more intelligent? And finally, where should be drawn the “golden line” between anonymity and confidentiality, and accountability and certification? The conference is intended to provide a forum for presenting and debating the latest developments in the field, from a technical, political, legal and regulatory point of view.
