This year V4DIS conference key themes will include state of e-government at the local level and its further development, “smart cities” and “smart regions” concepts or ICT utilization in promoting areas interesting from the touristic point of view—and all that mainly from the point of view of the V4 region. There will be also interesting speeches concerning further development of cross-border cooperation, using geoinformation or experience in modern technologies implementation in the wide spectrum of areas connected with public administration.
