This workshop is the international meeting point for e-voting experts from
all over Europe and beyond to hold an interdisciplinary and open discussion
of all issues electronic voting involves. It is the continuation of the
successful 2004 E-Voting workshop in the same location. It also serves as
the academic review conference for the 2004 Recommendations on electronic
voting of the Council of Europe, preparing the Council of Europe's own
biennial review, and guarantees hereby heightened visibility for
presentations and papers.


The aim of this ESF TED Workshop is to bring together e-voting specialists
working in academia, politics, government and industry in order to

- Discuss all forms of electronic voting (including but not limited to
polling station, kiosk or remote voting by electronic means)
- Formulate the interdisciplinary issues involved (technology, law, politics
and society) in designing and implementing e-voting.
- Present new ways of solving the voting paradigm of unequivocal
identification of the voter and full anonymity of the vote.
- Report on implementations, their legal, organisational and technical
framework, the project experience made, and future plans.
- Analyse the interrelationship with and the effects of e-voting on,
democratic institutions and processes as well as voter behaviour.
- Conduct a social and political analysis of the effects of electronic
- Report on practical experience in implementing and conducting elections
with electronic voting parts.
- Discuss security requirements and testing in accordance to international
security standards i.e. Common Criteria or ITSEC.
- Evaluate electronic voting, the effects of it and how to evaluate

The idea of this workshop is to discuss the development in this field in a
3-day workshop that deals with the topics from a theoretical view as well as
practical case studies.

castle of Hofen at Lochau/Bregenz on the shores of Lake Constance in
