Host: Southwestern Oklahoma State University
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN THE OKLAHOMA RESEARCH DAY EVENT
Now in its 20th year, Oklahoma Research Day is a premier annual event celebrating student and faculty research, creative, and scholarly activities. The event has grown in numbers and in stature with contributions from all of Oklahoma’s institutions of higher education, including many collaborative contributions from national and international academic and research institutions. The 2018 Oklahoma Research Day event had over 1,000 registered students, faculty, and guests and featured over 550 unique poster presentations.
The 2019 event will be hosted by Southwestern Oklahoma State University at the SWOSU Wellness Center and the Pioneer Cellular Event Center in Weatherford. Details concerning directions to the Pioneer Cellular Event Center, the city of Weatherford, local restaurants, and parking will become available to participants in early 2019.
Oklahoma Research Day promotes cross-campus and cross-disciplinary research among all institutions of higher learning in the State of Oklahoma. The event seeks to encourage networking among researchers and interchange of ideas among those studying and researching in their respective academic disciplines.

|Abstract Format||The abstract for submission should consist of no more than 1,500 characters with spaces and include the following information: 1) Objective of the research; 2) Thesis statement; 3) Methodology; and 4) Findings|
Innovation in city hall has accelerated with the rise of information communication technologies (ICTs) since the 1990s. The adoption of these technologies in local government has contributed to the emergence of electronic-government or e-government. While a growing body of research is assessing e-government across large metropolitan areas, a systematic analysis as to why and how e-government policies have been adopted in local government remains rare. Cross-national comparative studies are even rarer. Relying on a Evaluation Index of Local E-Government Sophistication as well as quantitative and qualitative approaches, the purpose of the analysis is threefold: 1) based on multiple regression, explain local e-government sophistication among a randomly selected sample of incorporated municipalities in the state of Washington in the U.S. and communes in the Aquitaine region in France; 2) based on descriptive statistics, illustrate the high level of e-government sophistication in the cities of Seattle and Bordeaux; and 3) guided by a model of policy innovation and based on a series of semi-structured interviews with city officials in Seattle and Bordeaux, explain the adoption of e-government policies in these cases that are embedded in very different national contexts. The results of this study help us understand macro trends in local e-government sophistication and some of the processes that guide the adoption of the relevant innovative ICT policies at the local level.
