In the last two decades, eGovernment research maturated into an active scientific field with a number of publication venues, many of them taking form of regular annual conferences. In this paper, we address the central question of whether the active researchers of these different venues converge towards a joint eGovernment research community. To answer this question, we perform a comparative analysis of the collaborative networks of co-authorship relationships between scholars that published papers at the two major conferences in the field: the European Conference on eGovernment, and the International Conference on eGovernment. Surprisingly, the obtained results show that each conference has built its own relatively stable community, and there are only weak ties that do not really indicate an emergence of a joint eGovernment scientific community.
