A few more words on the conference I mentioned below. The Call for Participation for the conference Open Source: A Case for e-Government is out there as you see, although we are yet to send out the formal announcement. But it is no secret … So, the essentials:
Where: Washington, DC
When: Oct. 17 – 18, 2002
Whom: Everyone 🙂
Organisers: World Bank/infoDev, the UNDP, the Cyberspace Policy Institute of The George Washington University, GSA and GOL-IN.
Along with the Call for Speakers, I would also on behalf of GOL-IN like to invite writers for a special publication on these issues. For acceptance, at least one co-author must be a government employee, but we are open for other contributions if they are high-quality and original. I need abstracts by August 20 and final chapters by late September. Drop me a message if you are interested in submitting a chapter.
