Software Research Towards Future eGovernment
Future eGovernment will have to keep pace with rapid technology development while responding to the social and economic changes. This seminar will outline two research areas in computer and software engineering which, in our view, will have a major influence on the future eGovernment – multimedia and virtual reality, and network-based cooperation. The former defines new ways for man-computer interaction while the latter covers four cooperation scenarios: 1) between organizations – Service Oriented Architecture, 2) between organizations and engineers – Cloud Computing, 3) between people – Social Networks, and 4) between devices – Internet of Things. Both areas are pursued by the Department of Information Technology, Faculty of Informatics and Electronic Economy, Poznań University of Economics. The seminar will explain some research problems investigated by the Department in these areas, and describe the results obtained to date.
