Seminar on Information Technology in the Electoral Process

Our colleague and friend Robert Krimmer launches a very interesting event: a Seminar on Information Technology in the Electoral Process, to be held next May in Krems (Austria).
"Electronic Voting is part of the future of voting. While e-voting systems are partly in use since the 1960s, nowadays there is a serious public debate over the introduction of E-Voting as an extension of the conventional voting channels.
To provide a guideline in this controversial discussion E-Voting.CC offers a two-day Seminar on Information Technology in the Electoral Process in cooperation with the Danube University in Krems. It will take place on the 26th & 27th of May 2008 in Krems, Autria.
The seminar adresses employees of public administration and public service, politically engaged persons, and people with general interest in recent developments of e-voting. The target of the Seminar is to give the participants a profound understanding on the ongoing developments in order to improve their professional skills in this constantly developing field.
Module 1: Understanding of legal basics and electoral engineering
Module 2: Workflow & election design, comparison of European, national and local legal fundamentals.
Module 3: Technological challenges of electronic elections.
Module 4: Implementing E-voting, technical aspects, election observation of electronic voting processes.
