On May 26, 2021, Escuela Politécnica Nacional (venue of ICEDEG) has made an important announcement regarding the COVID-19. The statement says that.

Authors of accepted papers for the Conference
For the "Escuela Politécnica Nacional," it was an honor to have been chosen as the host for the Eighth International Conference on eDemocracy & eGovernment (ICEDEG 2021).
As a university, we are very interested in fostering the development and diffusion of science. It is the reason why we were motivated to hold ICEDEG 2021, to become a leading Conference on eCollaboration, eDemocracy, eSociety, and eGovernment.
Unfortunately, due to the health emergency caused by the widespread infections of COVID-19, the restrictions for traveling affect some countries around the world.
Given the limited advance of the vaccination program in Ecuador and the current regulations still enforced, we cannot hold the Conference in person. Consequently, we are forced to run ICEDEG 2021 as an Online Event.
We express our intention to host ICEDEG in the future, and we will be waiting for the time when our lives would return to normality. We encourage everybody to take care of themselves, and we will be happy to meet you in the future.

Since many ICEDEG 2021 participants, keynote speakers, and workshop and tutorial chairs come from different countries around the world. The ICEDEG 2021 Organizing Committee has decided to cancel the conference in person and hold it exclusively online.
We thank you for your understanding and your support of the ICEDEG Conference.
