---------| OBJECTIVES: Persuasion in Transport Applications |-----------
The aim of this  workshop  is to bring  together people with interest in
Persuasion and/or Automotive  research and to discuss, share  knowledge,
and take  away insights, strategies, and  tips of how to  use persuasive
technology to improve the driver-vehicle interaction loop.

---------------------------| WORKSHOP THEMES |--------------------------
Potential  topics to be  discussed at the  workshop include, but are not
limited to:

I. Theories and Models

* Theories and  models in  Psychological, Cognitive,  Affective Sciences
  about 1) motives, rewards, incentives, reinforcements  and 2) behavior
* Theories and models in Affective Computing
* Theories and models in Positive Design/Technology/Computing
* Direction: Persuasion for long-term vs. short-term behavior adaptation
* Ethical issues: What is the direction of persuasion, who decides it?..
* Trust: persuasive technology or manipulative technology

II. Modalities and Strategies

* Speech-based dialogue between driver and car
* Implicit/subliminal/unobtrusive/ambient driver-car communication
* Multimodal interactions (visual, auditory, haptic, gestures, etc.)
* Reminder and preventive strategies
* Gamification of behavior modification technologies

III. Applications in Vehicle Environments

* Intelligent  Means  of Transportation: Promote fuel  effcient driving,
  Detect and  prevent or mitigate a) fatigue  driving, b) emotional dri-
  ving, c) use of mobile phone while driving
* Social Cars: Provide  collective  knowledge about  driving  skills and
  traffic pattern, Promote car pooling, etc.
* Autonomous Cars: Persuade  the driver  ased on  social networks (other
  people's  opinion), rather than  a  car,  Expand the  driver's  social
  abilities  by  initiating a contact with other real people, by using a
  car, Persuasive technology to support the transition between different
  levels of  control in  partial  automation, Application  of persuasive
  technology (serious games) to establish  cooperative self organization
  (i. e., lessen selfish behavior)

----------------------------| PARTICIPATION |---------------------------
Persuasive Technologies 2016 will offer (for the first time) free access
to workshops. We also allow participants with  registration for the main
conference to join our workshop.

The selection of workshop participants will be done by a review process.
To guarantee fair decisions, experts from the field of  persuasive tech-
nology and/or driving research will serve as reviewers. Submissions need
not to be anonymous. Final decisions of  accepting or  rejecting a paper
will be made by  the  organizers  of the  workshop  based on the  review
scores and with respect to  offering all workshop participants an inter-
esting, diversified program.

-----------------------------| SUBMISSIONS |----------------------------
Submissions  for the workshop are  required to adhere to the same format
as the main conference (Springer LNCS, max. 6 pp.) and must  be uploaded
to the submission system. We invite interested authors to submit  papers
describing a crisp,  self-contained problem in the field of the workshop
(=position  papers). Successful  submissions  will have the potential to
raise  discussion,  illustrate  problems, provide  insights, or  provide
potential solutions.

Submissions should be made electronically not later than January 29, '16
using the  paper submission system available here: <link provided soon>.
Please feel free to contact the organizers at any time.

Submissions need not to be  anonymous.  However,  reviews  will  be done
anonymously using an evaluation form. Each paper will  receive  at least
two reviews. All accepted papers  will  be published  online  before the
beginning of the workshop.
