Here you can download the call for papers for the e-Government track on Interoperability, that I will chair in the 12th European Conference on e-Government (ECEG 2012). The conference will be held at the Institute of Public Governance and Management, ESADE Barcelona – Campus Sant Cugat, Barcelona, Spain, during June 14-15, 2012 (see Google Map).
