Returning for a third year, the conference will focus on the impact that civic technology and digital democracy are having upon citizens, decision makers and governments around the world. The participants will discuss themes of engagement, participation, institution, social behaviour, politics, community, digital capability, communication and ethics relating to the use and study of civic technology.
TICTeC2017 will bring together individuals from academic and applied backgrounds as well as businesses, public authorities, NGOs and education institutions to discuss ideas, present research and build a network of individuals interested in the civic technology landscape.
This 2 day conference provides the opportunity for researchers to present theoretical or empirical work related to the conference theme. The organizers also welcome proposals for individuals to lead workshops or give presentations relating to the conference theme and they encourage submissions to focus on the specific impacts of technologies, rather than showcase new tools that are as yet untested.
Further details on speakers and sessions will be added to the TICTeC website regularly.
