In this one-day workshop we aim to develop the concept of Pervasive Participation further by reflecting on current forms of advanced e-participation that utilize latest pervasive technologies such as feature-rich smartphones and technically enriched appliances embedded in urban environments. Together we want to brainstorm ideas for effectively leveraging of in-situ participation as well as the combination of mobile and stationary forms of participation. The objective of the workshop is to jointly develop requirements for innovative strategies that engage a broader range of citizens, thus also encouraging less motivated people. The second part of the day will be used for a creative prototyping session that will be fueled with topics from our discussions and presentations.
As outcome of the workshop we envision guidelines as well as a research roadmap for Pervasive Participation that combines mobile and stationary engagement methods in an engaging way.
