    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.
