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 2023 conference will be hosted by Eindhoven University of Technology. The previous versions of conferences have been successfully organised in Doha (2022, online due to COVID-19), Bournemouth (2021, online due to COVID-19), Aalborg (2020, online due to COVID-19), Limassol (2019), Waterloo (2018), Amsterdam (2017), Salzburg (2016), Chicago (2015), Padua (2014), Sydney (2013), Linköping (2012), Columbus (2011), Copenhagen (2010), Claremont (2009), Oulu (2008), Palo Alto (2007), and Eindhoven (2006). The conference series seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia working with various topics of persuasive technology. These researchers have very diverse scientific backgrounds, ranging from engineering, computer science, human-computer interaction, design, psychology, ethics, communication, and many other specializations.
