Abstract

In recent years, the number of vacant houses is increasing in Japan, as the population decline in local communities. In this context, there is an urgent need to develop smart socio-Technical systems that enable effective use and management of vacant houses, thereby preventing them from having negative impacts on local communities. In this paper, we propose an approach to support community-centric use and management of vacant houses based on an integrated crowdsourcing platform. We describe our ongoing project in Kashiwa City, and argue for an open, inclusive, and community-centric distributed platform to cater for some of the important needs in the community.
