Researchers and practitioners around the world are currently exploring 
novel participation methods with the objective to better integrate 
citizens in the public decision making processes. By using contemporary 
technology, they not only aim to lower traditional participation 
barriers but also broaden the scope of involved citizens by trying to 
encourage those previously less eager to participate, such as younger 
generations. Especially in urban planning, the penetration of mobile and 
wearable devices with their manifold features to interact with 
real-world surroundings as well as public screens or technically 
enriched artifacts embedded in urban surroundings provide new 
opportunities to collect citizen input directly from on-site and on the 
go.This focus section features the concept of Pervasive Participation, 
which use the latest pervasive technologies such as feature-rich 
smartphones and instrumented urban environments. We invite original 
contributions that effectively leverage in-situ participation as well as 
the combination of mobile and stationary forms of participation. The 
objective of the IXDA focus section is to provide a timely collection of 
rigorous research on the design and use of pervasive participation 

*Topics of Interest*
We invite contributions on topics including but not limited to

• Novel pervasive and mobile e-participation concepts and prototypes
• Evaluations of pervasive e-participation prototypes
• User Experience factors of pervasive participation; new methods for 
assessing UX factors in pervasive participation
• Innovative user interfaces and interaction techniques facilitating 
Pervasive Participation
• Exploitation of social media platforms on pervasive devices for 
citizen e-participation
• Approaches to activate and encourage different citizen groups to take 
part in decision-making processes using pervasive technology
• Novel strategies to entice previously less interested citizens to 
become engaged (e.g. gamification, persuasive technologies)
• Privacy and security issues in Pervasive Participation and approaches 
to overcome them
• Integration of Pervasive Participation in traditional decision-making 
• 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
