Announcing the First International Workshop on Behavior Change Support Systems (BCSS), in conjunction with the 8th International Conference on Persuasive Technology on April 3-5, Sydney, Australia.

A wide-ranging array of persuasive applications have been developed so far that aim to persuade and support users to perform or adopt desirable behaviors. This workshop aims to provide an underpinning for designing, evaluating and exploring Behavior Change Support Systems (BCSS). It will be the first scientific workshop focused on to the models of behaviour change using the conceptual BCSS. The workshop will provide an occasion for researchers and practitioners to describe and comprehend the design process for building BCSSs. It will provide a venue for elucidating research into BCSSs through the domains of health, well-being, and others, for instance, to improve healthy lifestyle, to achieve predefined or self set goals through augmented persuasive techniques and approaches.

Position papers are due on January 10, 2013. A more detailed workshop description and CFP are available at
