Citizen 2013 is an event focused on digital delivery of government services and citizen to government engagement which will be held on 13th June, 9 am – 5 pm.

Although the event is now full, it is possible to register and be put on a waiting list. However, for those who will not be able to attend, the event can be viewed right here on the Digital by Default News via live streaming. Check in to the website closer to the time for a link.

Speakers will include the UK Government’s Digital Champion, Martha Lane-Fox; Facebook’s Political and Government specialist Elizabeth Linder; and Antonio Acuna, Head of Data.gov.uk, amongst others.

The conference aims to draw together thought leaders in government IT, civil servants, technologists and market analysts.  It is a government service focused event with a number of key themes including:

  • “Omni-Channel” Services – is government embracing all channels or just some?
  • The “Digital First” Mantra – is it really a mantra or just lip-service?
  • The Austerity Agenda – how is digital helping?
  • Shared Services – Where are they?
  • Move Over Open Data – make way for Open Services?

According to conference organiser, Jeffrey Peel, this year’s event will have a strong focus on a number of interlocking themes: “Since our Citizen 2012 event last June the coalition government has put ‘digital’ at the centre of its efficiency and reform agenda. The government has set itself a remit to encourage as many people as possible to go online, and improve the convenience and efficiency of public services by driving online delivery. Our conference will discuss whether digital technologies are being embraced in order to improve service, citizen engagement and social care.”

“We’ll have sessions that look in detail at how public services are moving online and the technologies driving them. We’ll also look at how social media technologies are being embraced, how open data is giving way to open services, and whether digital by default is just a catch-phrase or a reality,” he adds.
