Persuasive Technology 2021 Conference
In a world in which technology is increasingly present in people’s lives, and changing human behavior and attitudes is often the key to solving many societal and personal problems, studying how technology might be used to influence humans (in their behavior, attitudes and information processing), is paramount. Persuasive Technology is a vibrant interdisciplinary research field, focusing on the design, development and evaluation of technologies aimed at influencing people’s attitudes and/or behaviors through informed persuasion, but not through coercion or deception. The research community aims at enriching people’s lives in various domains such as health, sustainability, education and well-being, by supporting the setting and achieving of goals they set for themselves, and thus change their behaviors.
The 2021 conference will be hosted by Bournemouth University in the UK. The previous versions of conferences have been successfully organized in Aalborg (2020, online due to COVID-19) , Limassol (2019), Waterloo (2018), Amsterdam (2017), Salzburg (2016), Chicago, Padua, Sydney, Linköping, Columbus, Copenhagen, Claremont, Oulu, and Stanford Eindhoven. The conference series seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia working with various topics of persuasive technology.
