CALL FOR PAPERS

Persuasive Technology (PT) is a vibrant interdisciplinary research field, focusing on the design, development and evaluation of interactive technologies aimed at changing people’s attitudes or behaviors through persuasion and social influence, but not through coercion or deception.

The 11th international conference on Persuasive Technologies will be held in the heart of Europe, in the beautiful city of Salzburg, Austria. After the conference being held in Chicago in 2015 the annual conference comes back to Europe. We are proud to host Persuasive Technologies in Salzburg, following exquisite sites such as Padua, Sydney, Linköping, Columbus, Copenhagen, Claremont, Oulu, Palo Alto, and Eindhoven.

The conference will bring together researchers, colleagues and friends from industry who are working in the field of persuasive technologies. As a community we aim at enriching people’s lives in various domains by supporting their personal goals to change their behavior.

SCOPE

The scope of the conference includes (but is not limited to) the following topics:

  • Theory of persuasive technologies
  • Cognition and persuasive technology
  • Design of persuasive technologies
  • Persuasive systems, interfaces, visualization
  • HCI issues in persuasive technology
  • Behavior change support systems
  • Tailored and personalized persuasive systems
  • Mobile, pervasive and ubiquitous persuasion
  • Persuasion through gamification
  • Persuasion in social technology
  • Evaluation and validation of persuasive applications
  • Technical infrastructures and intelligent systems for persuasion
  • Smart environments and persuasion
  • Habit change, social practices and cultural values
  • Ethical aspects of persuasive technology
  • Political and cultural consequences of persuasive technology
  • Persuasive technology and religion
  • Persuasive technologies for healthy living
  • Persuasive technologies for a sustainable environment
  • Persuasive technologies in learning and training
  • Persuasive applications for marketing and commerce
  • Empowering technology for organizations and work environments
  • Mass persuasion and interactive technologies

CONFERENCE THEME: CONTEXTUAL PERSUASION: Supporting Life Situations and Challenges by Persuasive Design

With the conference theme for PT-16 being “Contextual Persuasion”, we emphasize the situatedness of interactions. How are interactions with persuasive technologies influenced by spatial, temporal, social, or individual conditions? How can we analyze and design for specific contexts or conditions? We will put emphasis on special target groups (e.g. children with anxiety disorders, adults with obesity, etc.) and stimulate the audience with potential technologies (e.g. platforms such as the Health Suite Digital Platform, the use of advanced sensing technologies such as NeuroSky devices, etc.).

Decision notification: January 22, 2016
Camera ready: February 12, 2016

POSTER:

This format is suitable for descriptions of small studies/experiences, of project outlines, of work in progress. Authors should submit a 2-page abstract in Springer LNCS format. Accepted posters will be included in the adjunct conference proceedings. Posters will be displayed and presented during a dedicated session of the conference.

Dates:
Poster submission deadline: January 29, 2016
Decision notification: February 19, 2016

DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM:

The Doctoral Consortium is a special session of the conference where PhD students in the early phases of their research can receive advice in a constructive atmosphere. Students present and discuss their research with other PhD students and a panel of established researchers in the area of persuasive technology. Students interested in participating in the Doctoral Consortium should submit a 2-page abstract in Springer LNCS format describing their research question, its position with respect to the state of the art, their research plans and methodology, ideas, and results achieved so far. Accepted abstracts will be included in the adjunct conference proceedings.

Dates:
DC submission deadline: January 29, 2016
Decision notification: February 19, 2016
Camera ready: February 26, 2016

DEMOS:

If you want to demonstrate a piece of persuasive technology during the demo session so that attendees can try and interact with it, please submit a 2-page description in Springer LNCS format, including the description of the system and its purpose, its status of implementation and deployment, contents of the demo to be shown at the conference, and equipment. If you want to show a commercial product then you might be asked to pay an exhibition fee. Accepted abstracts will be included in the adjunct conference proceedings.

Dates:
Demos submission deadline: January 29, 2016
Decision notification: February 19, 2016
Camera ready: February 26, 2016

WORKSHOPS:

Workshops are meant to gather a number of people to work interactively on a (future) topic and exchange ideas. Approved workshops will be announced on the website. They will take place during a half- or full-day session before the conference. If you want to organize a workshop, please submit a proposal as a 2-page description in Springer LNCS format, including a description of the topic, motivation, organization, expected outcome, and supporting materials. Accepted proposals will be included in the adjunct conference proceedings.

Dates:
Workshop proposal submission deadline: November 13, 2015

PERSUASIVE [GAME] DESIGN JAM:

For the first time we will host a design jam at Persuasive Technologies 2016. The idea behind this design jam is to create games and playful interactive objects that act as persuasive artifacts in various social settings. Prototypical implementations of game designs will be accomplished in a one-day workshop and presented at the conference. The detailed procedure for applicants and dates will be announced.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS

All types of submissions must be written in English, and sent electronically as pdf files through the conference submission system (http://persuasive2016.org/authors/). Submissions must comply with the

Springer LNCS format (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0). Attention will be paid in the reviewing process to originality, technical soundness, quality of writing, ethics, validation, and connections with other work in the domain of persuasive technology. To support the blind review process of long and short papers, submissions need to be anonymous. Names and affiliations must be removed from the title page, excessive self-citation in the bibliography must be kept to a minimum and citation to the authors’ previous work in the text body must be in third person (e.g. avoiding “As we described in [1], …” and using instead “As <Author Name> described in [1]).

When accepted a camera ready version of the paper (as .pdf) including source files (e.g., .doc, .docx or LaTeX files) must be submitted. At least one author per submission is required to register before the end of the early registration period and be present at the conference. Inclusion in the proceedings is conditional upon successful registration.

PUBLICATIONS

Accepted papers will be published by Springer in a volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (www.springer.com/lncs). Workshop and demo descriptions, abstracts from posters, and doctoral consortium abstracts will be published as an adjunct proceedings volume with an ISBN.
