7th International Conference on e-Democracy (e-Democracy 2017), Athens, Greece, December 14-15, 2017

"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..." Source: e-Democracy2017

10th International Conference on Security, Privacy and Anonymity in Computation, Communication and Storage (SpaCCS 2017), Guangzhou, China, December 12-15, 2017

"The SpaCCS 2017 conference is the 10th event in the series of conferences which are devoted to security, privacy and anonymity in computation, communication and storage. SpaCCS is now recognized as the main regular event of the world that is covering many dimensions including security algorithms and architectures, privacy-aware policies, regulations and techniques, anonymous computation and communication, encompassing fundamental theoretical approaches, practical experimental projects, and commercial application systems for computation, communication and storage."

13th EAI International Conference on Collaborative Computing: Networking, Applications and Worksharing, Guangzhou, China, November 11-12, 2017

"Over the last two decades, many organizations and individuals have relied on electronic collaboration between distributed teams of humans, computer applications, and/or autonomous robots to achieve higher productivity and produce joint products that would have been impossible to develop without the contributions of multiple collaborators. Technology has evolved from standalone tools, to open systems supporting collaboration in multi-organizational settings, and from general-purpose tools to specialized collaboration grids. Future collaboration solutions that fully realize the promises of electronic collaboration require advancements in networking, technology and systems, user interfaces and interaction paradigms, and interoperation with application-specific components and tools."
