CfP: PerPart 2015: 2nd International Workshop on Pervasive Participation


- in conjunction with UbiComp 2015

- September 8th, 2015, Osaka, Japan

- June 10th, 2015, submissions due


-------------------- Summary and Theme --------------------

Governments around the world are trying to improve methods how to integrate citizens in the public decision making processes. They aim to introduce new methods to broaden the scope of involved citizens as well as to encourage those previously less eager to participate, such as younger generations. In governing urban development, participation has been long encouraged and organized especially related to urban planning. Especially in that field, the penetration of mobile and wearable devices with their manifold features to interact with real-world surroundings provides new opportunities to collect citizen input directly from particular sites and on the go.

The 2nd International Workshop on Pervasive Participation (PerPart 2015) seeks to discuss the various requirements, opportunities, challenges and impact of novel concepts for advanced citizen e-participation based on the pervasive computing paradigm utilizing latest mobile technology such as feature-rich smartphones and wearables and appliances embedded in today's technically enriched urban surroundings. PerPart aims to provide an extensive outlook on relevant concepts, innovations and research issues in the field of advanced technology-mediated citizen participation. Thus, we plan to examine Pervasive Participation from various angles and to uncover the interdisciplinary challenges of creating feasible, efficient, and user-accepted Pervasive Participation methods.

-------------------- Topics of Interest --------------------

We invite contributions on topics including but not limited to

- Novel pervasive and mobile e-participation concepts and prototypes

- Innovative user interfaces and interaction techniques facilitating Pervasive Participation

- Exploitation of social media platforms on pervasive devices for citizen e-participation

- Approaches to attract and encourage different citizen groups to take part in decision-making processes using pervasive technology

- Privacy and security issues in Pervasive Participation and approaches to overcome them

- Integration of Pervasive Participation in traditional decision-making processes

- Methodologies for evaluating novel pervasive forms of citizen e-participation or assessing their impact

- Experiences from planning, conducting, and evaluating field trials and living labs in the fields of mobile and pervasive citizen e-participation

-------------------- Submission --------------------

Workshop candidates are invited to submit position papers up to 6 pages in the SIGCHI Extended Abstract format by June 10th, 2015 by Email to: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> The program committee will select participants based on the quality and relevance of their submitted papers. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
