To be published by IGI Global:

E-Government is rapidly changing the way governmental services are provided to citizens and businesses, over the last years. The increasing number of data, regulations, policies and their updates is resulting by a huge number of semi-structured heterogeneous documents including semantic and multilingual problems, etc. On the other hand, globalization, migration, financial crisis, climate changes and other natural hazards that may happen either locally or across the globe are putting new challenges to e-government, e.g. how to provide accurate information to citizens with respect to their constitutional laws and to businesses with respect to desired economic growth.

Aside from the financial costs and threats to the success of E-government are challenges that have often been overlooked or ignored. E.g. governments have not employed many democratic strategies in tailoring e-government services to match citizen’s and/or business requirements. Additionally, different or even the same levels of governments are suffering by too much heterogeneity of data and standards in use.

The objective of this book is to address which services in e-government should be provided to users and how: i.e. dealing with existing data, new data acquisition, even in real time, and intelligent data bringing to either citizens or to business in an accurate, timely and secure manner. At the same time the interoperability within an e-government, in B2G and B2C domain should be at the highest possible level. To achieve these goals the effective usage of advanced Web technologies such as crowdsourcing, data mashup, ontologies, Web services, Internet of Things and their power effective combination should be analyze, develop and deploy in e-government services. Despite the common interoperability goals above in depth analysis of specific domain requirements should also be taken into account.

New approaches, including thinking about new possibilities for the Internet of Things and the Internet of Services and for “cloud oriented” approaches is also of real interest to researchers who hope to solve these problems. E-Government applications play a part in the evolution of future technologies, promise a new way to share and discover information, and may improve business and government exchange capability. Moving toward real business intelligence, many researchers hope to discover where intelligent agents and Semantic Web technologies fit in now and how they support the goal of improving Electronic government services at the highest possible level.
