The times are Mountain time:

8:45 a.m.  10:00 a.m.               Session III.  Citizenship in the
Public Sphere
Certainly the understanding of how citizens engage within his or her
community has transformed in the digital era.  How do citizens come
together to address common issues, solve problems and create a sense
of place?  How do we envision the public sphere of tomorrow?  What
policies are necessary or warranted to bring about a robust public
sphere today?

10:00 a.m.  11:00 a.m.         Session IV.  Global Citizenship
Concepts of citizenship do not start and end within traditional
jurisdictional borders.  What does global citizenship mean in 2011 and
beyond?  How do digital and network technologies alter conceptions of
citizenship and connectedness to the rest of the world?  Indeed, how
does one identify as a citizen in the modern world?

11:00 a.m.  11:30 a.m.         Break

11:30 a.m.  12:30 p.m. Session V.  Digital Governance
This session will describe how the technologies, which have
transformed business and organizations, might reform democracy and
citizenship.  How might the technologies of mobility, sensing, games,
and broadband change the relationship between individual and
institution?  How do they change the processes of governance and
citizen involvement?  What new approaches to the provision of
government services will allow Federal, State and local governments to
provide more at lower cost?  Generally, what democratic innovations
are made possible from the new digital technologies?
