The aim of the workshop is to involve researchers from various disciplines in researching the areas of policy-making and public administration. Participants will dicuss the advances in complexity theory and the application of the methods of complexity research and network analysis in public policy, governance, public decision-making, and public management.

The workshop along IFIP EGOV and IFIP ePart is organized by the eGovPoliNet project and it contributes to stimulate discussion on future grand challenges and research needs.

Some challenges have been identified by the project as managing the complexity and uncertainty of the policy-making process, an increasingly diverse stakeholder involvement, a variety and magnitude of sources of data and information, as well as the importance of including technologies throughout the whole process of policy-making.

To take advantage of recent developments, new approaches, concepts, instruments, and methods are needed which are able to deal with societal and computational complexity.
