The International Conference in e-Governance was first held in India in 2003 and was inaugurated by H.E. the President of India. After a very successful conference, the organizing committee of ICEG2003 requested Mr. Lalith Weeratunge, Director, Re-Engineering Government of the ICT Agency (ICTA) to make suitable arrangements to hold ICEG2004 in Sri Lanka. Mr. Weeratunge then requested Prof. V.K.Samaranayake, the Chairman of IITC2004 and the then Director of the University of Colombo School of Computing (UCSC), the organization that has managed IITC since 2001 to consider holding ICEG2004 in Colombo and manage it.
This request was considered by the IITC2004 organizing committee and it was agreed that ICEG2004 be held in parallel with IITC2004. e-Governance is of particular interest to Sri Lanka. On one hand, it is clear that one of the benefits of ICT which can reach the public at large is the deployment of e-Government service. On the other hand, the very ambitious e-Sri Lanka project has a major component in the area of Re-engineering government, a necessary re-requisite for successful implementation of e-Governance. e-Governance is not just an ICT enabled, efficient and effective public service with
enhanced revenue generation for the Government but also a way of providing better citizen services through the use of ICT.
