The 11th International Conference on Persuasive Technology
April 5-7, Salzburg, Austria
CFP: Poster, Demos, Doctoral Consortium
Submission deadline: January 29, 2016

Persuasive Technology (PT) is a vibrant interdisciplinary research 
field, focusing on the design, development and evaluation of interactive 
technologies aimed at changing people’s attitudes or behaviors through 
persuasion and social influence, but not through coercion or deception. 
The 11th international conference on Persuasive Technologies will be 
held in the heart of Europe, in the beautiful city of Salzburg, Austria.

This format is suitable for descriptions of small studies/experiences, 
of project outlines, of work in progress. Authors should submit a 4-page 
abstract (including references, no anonymization needed) in Springer 
LNCS format. Poster paper submissions need to be done via the poster 
submission system (

Accepted posters will be included in the adjunct conference proceedings. 
Posters will be displayed and presented during a dedicated session of 
the conference. Inclusion in the adjunct proceedings is conditional upon 
successful registration.

Poster submission deadline: January 29, 2016
Decision notification: February 19, 2016
Camera ready: February 26, 2016

On Monday, April 4 2016, the Doctoral Consortium of Persuasive2016 will 
take place. The Doctoral Consortium is a special session of the 
conference where PhD students in the early phases of their research can 
receive advice in a constructive atmosphere. Students present and 
discuss their research with other PhD students and a panel of 
established researchers in the area of persuasive technology.

Students interested in participating in the Doctoral Consortium should 
submit a 2-page abstract in Springer LNCS format describing their 
research question, its position with respect to the state of the art, 
their research plans and methodology, ideas, and results achieved so 
far. You do not need to present completely finished research projects: 
also plans (without any results yet) are very much welcome!

Submission is done via email to [log in to unmask]

Accepted abstracts will be included in the adjunct conference 
proceedings. Accepted DC students will get free access to the 
conference, unless they are not also presenting a paper, poster, or 
demo. In this case they have to pay the registration fee. (See 
submissions descriptions for papers, posters, and demos.)

Join the Doctoral Symposium to:
* receive valuable feedback on your research project
* join the heart of the Persuasive Technology community
* build your network of contacts to professors and other PhD-students

It will be a one-track, one-day meeting on Monday April 4, right before 
the Persuasive conference. Next to great scientific contents, we will 
also spend attention to social activities (e.g., lunch & dinner).

DC submission deadline: January 29, 2016
Decision notification: February 19, 2016
Camera ready: February 26, 2016

If you want to demonstrate a piece of persuasive technology during the 
demo session so that attendees can try and interact with it, please 
submit a max 4-page description in Springer LNCS format, including the 
description of the system and its purpose, its status of implementation 
and deployment, contents of the demo to be shown at the conference, and

We will offer a great tutorial on Mobile Persuasion Design by Aaron Marcus.
For more information see:

Tutorial Chair
Harri Oinas-Kukkonen, University of Oulu

We offer participation in seven workshops:
WS1: User Experience Design for Persuasion and Behavior Change
WS2: Empowering Cities for Sustainable Wellbeing
WS3: The Challenge of Device Overload: Using the Persuasive Framework to 
effectively use modern technologies to encourage health-promoting behaviors
WS4: Where are we bound for? Persuasion in Transport Applications
WS5: Persuasive Designs for Learning – Learning in Persuasive Design – 
Workshop Proposal
WS6: Behavior Change Support Systems (BCSS 2016): Epic for Change, the 
Pillars for Persuasive Technology for Smart Societies
WS7: Personalization in Persuasive Technology Workshop

They will take place during a half- or full-day session before the 
Participation is free of charge for conference participants.

workshop websites:

Workshop Co-Chairs
Maurits Kaptein, Radboud University
Peter Fröhlich, Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT)

For the first time we will host a design jam at Persuasive Technologies 
2016. The idea behind this design jam is to create games and playful 
interactive objects that act as persuasive artifacts in various social 
settings. Prototypical implementations of game designs will be  
accomplished in a one-day workshop and presented at the conference.
