1st International Workshop on Behavior Change Support Systems (BCSS) -- April 2013 -- Sydney

 

An array of persuasive applications have been developed over the past decade with an aim to induce desirable behavior change. Persuasive applications have shown promising results in motivating and supporting people to change or adopt new behaviors and attitudes.

The purpose of this workshop is to develop a richer understanding of the Behavior Change Support Systems (BCSSs) – as an object Persuasive Technology. The workshop will provide a platform where students, researchers, experts and practitioners will have an opportunity to not only present their work but equally importantly develop a mutual and broader understanding of Behavior Change models using the BCSSs.

The participants of the workshop will have a unique opportunity to discuss their work including on-going work relating to the design process of developing BCSSs for health, well-being, persuasive design, ethical issues, measuring behavior, task adherence and persuasive techniques.

The workshop will also cover research designs and methodologies that are applicable to BCSSs.

The workshop will be organized at the 8th International Conference on Persuasive Technology April 3-5, Sydney, Australia.

[CfP] ECIS 2013, Persuasive Systems Design Track

The 21st European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS 2013), June 5-8, 2013, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

Track: Persuasive Systems Design

Track Chairs

Harri Oinas-Kukkonen, University of Oulu, Finland

Fahri Yetim, University of Siegen, Germany

Track Description

The study of users’ attitudes and behavior has a long history in information system research. The IS field has drawn many lessons from social psychology over the past few decades, in particular from theories such as Theory of Reasoned Action, Self-Efficacy Theory, Social Cognitive Theory, and Theory of Planned Behavior. IS researchers have also developed new models and frameworks based on these such as Technology Acceptance Model, and Unified Theory of Use and Acceptance of Technology. But beside these general attitude and behavior-related theories, there are also other useful attitude and/or behavior change related theories in social psychology, like Elaboration Likelihood Model, information processing theory, and cognitive consistency theory. These have been used to some extent in IS research, but these change related theories are not well known among IS researchers, however. A key element in behavior and attitude change is persuasion. Persuasive technology is a young and vibrant research area, focusing on how interactive technologies may be used to create, maintain, or change human thought and behavior. Combining well-established research methods and traditions from reference disciplines such as social psychology and communication with cutting-edge technologies brings about a special flavor characteristic of the track. The track will feature new insights, research and practice into how the development and use of technology may change and influence our behavior, thoughts, feelings and society at large. The track is expected to gather researchers, doctoral students, practitioners, and other people interested in presenting, discussing, reflecting, and networking on central themes associated with the development and use of persuasive systems. We welcome theoretical and empirical papers that employ diverse methodologies and philosophical perspectives, as well as design research papers which describe and evaluate novel design methods and system prototypes. In addition to full research papers also research in progress papers and teaching cases are welcome.

Themes of the conference include, but are not limited to:

  • Methods, models, and principles for persuasive systems design
  • Evaluation of persuasive systems
  • Mobile persuasion
  • Behavior change support systems
  • Smart/ambient/ubiquitous environments
  • Affective computing
  • Persuasive systems in inclusive ICT
  • Wellbeing and health behavior
  • e-Interventions for addictions
  • Metrics and evaluating measures of behavior change
  • Social and organizational issues
  • Motivational information behavior
  • Emotions and persuasion
  • Explanation/argumentation and persuasion
  • Personalization and persuasion
  • Value sensitive design of persuasive systems
  • Methodological issues in R&D
  • Ethics of persuasive systems
  • Theoretical foundations for persuasive systems

Persuasive 2012: Design for health and safety

 

Persuasive 2012
The 7th International Conference on Persuasive Technology
June 6–8, 2012
Linköping, SWEDEN

Persuasive Technology is a stimulating interdisciplinary research field that focuses on how interactive technologies and services can be designed to change people’s attitudes and behaviors. Influenced by areas such as classic rhetoric, social psychology and ubiquitous computing, researchers in this field are typically designing applications for domains such as health, business, safety, and education.
The 7th International Conference on Persuasive Technology (Persuasive 2012) will build on the successful prior conferences held at Eindhoven, Stanford, Oulu, Copenhagen, Claremont, and Columbus. The conference will feature the latest insights into how mobile and internet-based applications such as mobile games and social networking sites can be designed to influence behaviors, thoughts, and feelings. The conference is expected to gather researchers, practitioners, and students who are interested in networking, presenting, discussing and reflecting on central themes associated with persuasive computing and design.

Persuasive 2010 Conference 7.-9.6.2010

PERSUASIVE 2010 - The Fifth International Conference on Persuasive Technology´╗┐

DESIGN FOR CHANGE
JUNE 7-9, 2010
Copenhagen, Denmark

Hosted by the Royal School of Library and Information Science in collaboration with Aalborg University and Oulu University.
 
Persuasive Technology is a young and vibrant research field, focusing on how interactive technologies may be used to create, maintain, or change human thought and behavior. Combining well-established research methods and traditions from epistemology, rhetoric, social psychology, communication, and information science with cutting-edge technologies brings about a special flavor characteristic of the Persuasive Technology conferences.
 
The Copenhagen conference will feature new insights, research and practice into how the development and use of technology may change and influence our behavior, thoughts, feelings and society at large. The conference will gather people interested in networking, presenting, discussing and reflecting on central themes associated with persuasive design and technology.
