    Abstract The 12th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV2019) took place in Melbourne, Australia, from 3 to 5 April 2019. The conference was held under the high patronage of the Digital Transformation Authority, Australian Government. The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT University) co-organised ICEGOV2019 with the United Nations University Operating Unit on Policy-Driven Electronic Governance (UNU-EGOV), which is as well the conference series coordinator. The conference organisation was also supported by the following sponsors: Huawei Technologies, Deloitte / Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM Corporation, and Springer. Under the theme Exploring Digital Government Synergies to Foster Equality, Inclusiveness, and Productivity, ICEGOV2019 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. In response to the Call for Papers, the conference received a total of 171 submissions written by 329 authors from 55 different countries. Subsequently, there was a double-blind peer-review process carried out by the Programme Committee (150 people). This review process resulted in 364 reviews and 81 accepted papers written by 187 authors, which are now published as part of these proceedings. Of these papers, three were further selected by the Awards Committee and received the respective Best Paper award. The acceptance rate for ICEGOV2019 was 36%. ICEGOV2019, much like its past editions3, featured a rich programme of Keynote Lectures (6), Plenary Sessions (4), Paper Sessions (12), Invited Sessions (5), Industry Sessions (6), Workshops (6), a Poster Exhibition, and a Doctoral Colloquium, all based on submitted or invited contributions by researchers, experts, policy-makers, and practitioners from around the world. A total of 225 people from 43 different countries attended the conference over its 3-day duration. Many institutions and individuals contributed to the successful organisation of the conference. In particular, we wish to thank the Patron of ICEGOV2019 and both Conference Chairs for supporting the organisation of the conference. We also warmly thank the Local Organiser for its efforts in hosting the conference and providing all the necessary organisational and logistic support. We also wish to express our most sincere thanks to the Sponsors, whose generous contributions enabled participation in the conference by many practitioners and experts from developing countries. Last but not least, we are most grateful to all ICEGOV2019 Committees, as well as to all speakers, panellists, moderators, chairs, authors, organisational staff and volunteers for their contributions to the success of the conference and these conference proceedings. We sincerely hope that ICEGOV2019 will contribute to advancing the global digital governance research, policy, and practice agenda. We look forward to continuing the discussions on how Digital Governance can effectively support Sustainable Development at the 13th edition of the conference (ICEGOV2020), which will take place in Athens, Greece.
