Digital Age is defined by the use of technology to support the way people
communicate and interact in their everyday and working lives. Digital age
therefore offers new and exciting opportunities to people, but it also

efficiency, productivity, trust and other human values should be 
considered in
a holistic sense oriented to enhance the 'quality of life' of people.

The goal of this workshop is to promote the study of the new realities 
by the emerging of digital age. The following questions will be explored
(but no limited to):

- How and how much cultures of participation affect, positively or

- How to assess the quality of a contribution? Is it possible or of

- How to design for massive EUD, e.g. a type of meta design?
- How to provide zones of end-user development (ZEUD) in socio-technical
systems, like hooks and open points in the run-time environments of these
systems so that end-user developers can create personally motivated
extensions to these systems?

- How EUD tools can support cultures of participation?
- What types of interactive environments can stimulate participation?
- What kind of technological platforms could support large community and
mass collaboration EUD?
