    Abstract From 2007 until 2017, ten editions of the ICEGOV conference have been held in ten cities, in ten countries and economies, across four continents. A total of 1841 papers have been submitted, a yearly average of 90 submitted papers (58%) have been accepted. This ongoing experience paper gives a brief overview of the major trends of all past ICEGOV editions, based on keywords sets and other information. As expected, initial findings show a consistent dominance of keywords at the core of ICEGOV including “egovernment” and “e-governance”. The paper highlights that others have emerged over time, including new phenomena, such as “social media” in 2010, “open government” after 2011, and “open data” or “open government data” from 2012. To better portray the transition of the relative importance of each keyword, a key research index (KRI) inspired by Kwon & Kwon (2017) is employed. The KRI identifies neither a particular grand theme dominating the discussion nor a transition of particular keywords towards a central theme. By contrast, the KRI shows that specific themes have dominated research in particular geographic regions, e.g. “e-democracy” in Europe, “interoperability” in North America, “information sharing” in Europe and Asia, and “public administration” in Africa and South America.
