We hereby invite all interested researchers, locally and internationally, to the 2016 Fall PIT Symposium on November 3rd 2016. The symposium will be a full day event with presentations of activities and research results from the Participatory Information Technology Center (PIT) together with talks by invited guests. PIT proudly brings you tastes and examples of our research from the past five years, that will then be discussed together with the audience and our invited guests. These international guest speakers present their own work as a lead-up to the discussions. The day is scheduled as four main themes, with an introduction, and a reception to round everything off.

The symposium day will consist of four sessions with the titles:

  *   Participation and Participatory Design
  *   Technologies of Participation
  *   Communities and Cities

Each session includes an overview presentation, a case presented by a local research, and a talk by an invited guest.

The Center for Participatory IT (PIT –<>) has been founded as an Aarhus University interdisciplinary research center. It has strong roots in the Scandinavian tradition for Participatory Design (PD), which combines the areas of technology development and use with a broader interest in participative practices at the workplace. The PD field has since the mid-80’s developed into a distinct research community, demonstrating that the quality of IT could be im­proved by involving future users in the design process. With IT in recent decades diffusing from the workplace to people’s everyday lives, PD practice and research face new challenges due to the nature of new communities of IT use as well as technological developments.
