    Abstract The 13th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV 2020), originally scheduled to take place in Athens, Greece, from 1 to 3 April 2020, was held instead on 23-25 September 2020 as a fully online conference in real-time. This was due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought massive disruption to most countries of the world, including lockdowns, travel bans, and closure of borders, conditions that did not allow people to physically meet, as is usual. Under the theme Digital Governance in the Era of Disruptive Technologies and Globalisation, ICEGOV 2020 explored how existing and emerging digital technologies can be effectively harnessed to foster inclusiveness, equality, and sustainability. It also addressed the implications and costs associated with the use of such technologies. Several tracks on diverse themes were available for paper submission, ranging from broad topics in the field, such as digital transformation, to more specific topics, such as smart cities, security and privacy, open government, digital citizenship or government research and policy. Due to the unusually long organisational period of the conference (around 15 months), two Call for Papers were issued: the regular Call for Papers in June 2019 and a Special Call for Short Papers in July 2020. In response to both calls, the conference received a total of 209 paper submissions written by 288 authors from 51 countries. Subsequently, there two double-blind peer-review processes carried out by the Programme Committee, which was composed of 221 people from 53 countries. This review process resulted in 478 reviews and 122 accepted papers written by 308 authors, which are now published as part of these proceedings. Of these 122 papers, four were further selected by the Awards Committee and received the respective Best Paper award. The acceptance rate for ICEGOV 2020 is 38%. ICEGOV 2020, much like its 12 past editions3, featured a rich 3-day programme of Keynote Lectures (6), Plenary Sessions (4), Paper Sessions (16), and Invited Sessions (6). Previously, on the pre-conference day (22 September), the Doctoral Colloquium and the Workshops (5) were held. All sessions were based on submitted or invited contributions by researchers, experts, policy-makers, and practitioners from around the world. A total of 341 people from 55 countries registered for the conference. Of these, academia represents the majority with 190 people registered (55%), followed by government (49, 14%), industry (46, 13%), international organisations (36, 11%), and other (20, 7%). Greece topped the list of countries with 95 participants.
