This one-day event and workshop has been developed by the Virtual Policy Network in conjunction with Coventry University’s Serious Games Institute. The event is aimed at those interested in how government should operate in a post Web2.0 world. Virtual worlds such as Second Life, Habbo Hotel and World of Warcraft pose opportunities and challenges for governments, mirror worlds and augmented realty add even more dimensions to the choices of engagement that government faces in the emerging future. Does v-Government offer new and exciting way to provide government services, engage citizens, innovate policy making, and foster e-democracy or is it yet another distraction from the true business of government.
