The workshop brings together theoretical and empirical perspectives on citizens' participation in automated service design processes (co-engineering) and policy development (co-governance).

It focuses on how the public is, should be, and could be involved in developing rules and regulations for deploying intelligent systems and robots in the context of public services.

Theoretical contributions are derived from a broad range of formalisms, including social choice theory, game theory, and decision theory. Empirical approaches include laboratory experiments, field experiments on interactions between human subjects and robots and AI, agent-based modeling, mass surveys, and observational data.

The workshop provides a forum for researchers from diverse scientific fields, including administrative sciences, computer science, economics, management, mechanical engineering, and psychology.

The first day of the workshop, 15 September, is devoted to presentations from researchers and is in hybrid mode with both presenters and audience participating either online or in-person.

The second day, 16 September, is devoted to discussions that are open to all participants including non-presenters.

We welcome participants from any scientific field, any corporation, and any public institution to take part in the discussion day particularly, but also the first day of presentations in the audience.
