ICT in Government, Education and Healthcare

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are playing increasingly transformative roles in Government, Education and Healthcare. Through e-Government portals and associated initiatives, citizen-centric services are now more accessible. The Education sector has witnessed tremendous changes due to ICT as well, with eLearning, blended learning and distance learning now recognized as alternative delivery modes to the traditional classroom delivery. More recently the importance of ICT in Healthcare has gained renewed attention with the need to develop electronic health records by federal and provincial/state governments. The need to develop policies and frameworks, as well as a good understanding of the potential challenges to implementing ICT in Government, Education and Healthcare remain critical success factors. The ICT in Government, Education and Healthcare track invites papers covering a wide array of topics in these areas including but not limited to: Design, Assessment, Review and Management of ICTs; ICT Strategic and Policy issues; and emerging roles and potential impact of ICT on Government, Education and Healthcare.
