Abstract
Е-government is based on electronic document management systems, state management automation systems, and other information and communication systems. A description of four е-government models—Continental European model, Anglo-American model, Asian model, and Russian model—are reviewed. The basis for the creation of the е-government portal is the Decree of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan dated November 10, 2004, Nº 1471 “On state program of formation of Е-government in the Republic of Kazakhstan for 2005-2007.” Е-government supports the following goals: creating new forms of interaction between government agencies, optimizing the provision of government services to the public and businesses, supporting and expansion of citizens' self-service capabilities, increasing technological awareness and skills of citizens, and increasing the degree of participation of all voters in the processes of governance and management of the country.

Art and the Avatar in Virtual and Mixed-Reality Exhibition Space
Virtual reality is defined as that which is not real but which may display qualities of the real. ( Milgram and Kishino, 1994 ; Sherman and Craig, 2003 ) By definition then, reality is a floating term inside virtual environments. As Margaret Wertheim points out, virtual cyberspace may feel like a new concept but its conception has been framed by thousands of years of spiritual and scientific thought. The concept of the virtual world may be compared to historical models such as Plato’s spheres and medieval notions of heaven and hell. ( Wertheim, 1999 )

State of the Art of XR Management Training Applications
The VR (virtual reality) is a realistic simulation of a reality that does not exist. It comes from the combination of hardware and software devices that “collaborate” to create a virtual space within which the user can move freely. Access to this digital world is made possible by VR viewers and accessories (not just joypads, but also gloves, shoes and more) developed specifically to interact and “live” within virtual reality. In this way a simulated and three-dimensional world is created which in the eyes (but not only) of the users appears to be real.

Immersive Technologies: Benefits, Challenges, and Predicted Trends
Is a technology that uses computer-generated imagery, sounds and touch-feel to create a simulated virtual environment, which can be experienced and interacted with by people in a way that makes them feel they are actually a part of the virtual setup. VR causes the brain to suspend belief, so that it does not distinguish between simulation and reality. This change in brain reaction helps to shape the sense of fantasy and excitement which are integral components of VR in video gaming and in certain types of mindset training. The experience is enabled by hardware such as Head Mounted Display Devices, probes, and haptic gloves.
