AbstractIn this paper, we explore the notion of user participation in context-aware applications and environments from a transdisciplinary perspective. A critical view on user participation within calm computing is discussed and some problems are identified. The reflection of these problems in current context-aware applications and environments are described. We propose a set of recommendations and possible realizations to overcome these problems and empower users in configuring and using these applications.
