From the Inter-Parliamentary Union:
We are pleased to inform you that the World e-Parliament Conference 2014 will be held in Seoul on 8, 9 and 10 May 2014 at the National Assembly of the Republic of Korea.
The World e-Parliament Conference is the biennial forum of the community of parliaments on their use of information and communication technologies (ICT). It addresses, from both the policy and technical perspectives, how ICT can help improve representation, law-making and oversight and increase parliament’s openness, accessibility, accountability and effectiveness.
The overarching theme of the Word e-Parliament Conference 2014 is “Lessons learned and future horizons”. By focusing on this theme, the sixth World e-Parliament Conference intends to take stock of the progress made by the parliamentary community in responding to citizens’ calls for greater institutional openness and dialogue. At the same time, it will look at the emerging and future challenges that parliaments will need to address to keep pace with technological change in society.
During the World e-Parliament Conference 2014 simultaneous interpretation will be provided in English, French and Spanish.
The preliminary agenda, a document outlining the goals, expectations and structure of the World e-Parliament Conference 2014, a practical information note and the registration form are available on the web site http://www.ipu.org/splz-e/eparl14.htm
