Persuasive Technology (PT) is a vibrant interdisciplinary research field focusing on the design, development, and evaluation of interactive technologies.
Persuasive Technology aims at changing people’s attitudes or behaviours through persuasion and social influence, but with strong considerations regarding transparency and ethics. The Persuasive Technology conference brings together international researchers and practitioners from industry and academia who are working in the field of behaviour design and persuasive technologies. As a community, we aim at enriching people’s lives in various domains – e.g., health, safety, and the environment – by supporting their personal goals to change their behaviour.
The 15th international conference on Persuasive Technologies will be hosted by the University of Aalborg, Denmark. The previous successful conferences have been organized in Salzburg, Chicago, Padua, Sydney, Linköping, Columbus, Copenhagen, Claremont, Oulu, Palo Alto, Eindhoven, Amsterdam, Waterloo and Cyprus.
The Persuasive Technology Steering Committee works to ensure continuity between conferences, and growth in the persuasive technology field
