To bolster Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI) initiatives, Nigeria announced its plans to host a workshop during the 17th Edition of the International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV). The Federal Government (FG) aims to enhance the effective design and implementation of DPI, calling upon interested researchers to contribute their expertise.

Scheduled to take place in Pretoria, South Africa, from October 1st to 4th, 2024, at the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, ICEGOV2024 will revolve around the theme “Trust and Ethical Digital Governance for the World We Want.”

The workshop’s overarching objective is to deepen Nigeria’s global research standing in pivotal technology domains, as outlined in the FMCIDE strategic plan. Additionally, it seeks to offer diverse local and global perspectives on implementing and expediting digital governance while fortifying Nigeria’s research leadership in digital governance within the Global South.

Researchers from various academic networks are invited to submit papers tailored to the workshop’s theme, “Designing and Implementing Scalable and Inclusive Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI) in African Context.” The submission deadline is set for April 21, 2024.

Papers should align with specific tracks of the conference, including:

  1. Trust and Ethical Digital Governance for the World We Want.
  2. Digital Transformation and Innovation in the Public Sector.
  3. Future-ready Digital Workforce and Infrastructure Development.
  4. Public and Private Sector Governing Digital Economies.
  5. Focus on the Global South Digital Transformation.

Authors of the top three selected DPI-tailored papers will receive sponsorship to participate in the Special Workshop. Those whose papers are accepted by ICEGOV must notify the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) by forwarding their acceptance notifications no later than July 12, 2024.

ICEGOV serves as an annual convergence of academia, governments, international organizations, civil society, and industry players to exchange insights and experiences in Digital Governance theory and practice. Organized by the United Nations University (UNU-EGOV) in collaboration with UNESCO, ICEGOV2024 aims to advance discussions on ethical digital governance and trust-building in today’s digital landscape.

Through ICEGOV2024, Nigeria aims to solidify its position in the global digital governance discourse by presenting meticulously researched and world-class papers from academia, industry, and government sectors. The event underscores Nigeria’s commitment to leveraging research and collaboration to drive sustainable digital transformation both locally and globally.
