ABOUT MobilePerusasion 2016
Over the last decade, supporting environmental and sustainable behavior has
been a fast growing area in HCI research.
Mobile persuasive technologies to support sustainable behaviour have
wide interest as mobile devices offer an extremely pervasive and
means to reach and influence the target users.

This workshop intends to investigate recent developments on mobile
for sustainability and explore future approaches and concepts in this
The expected workshop outcome will be a deeper understanding on the
and future research directions with respect to mobile persuasive
for sustainability.

We welcome diverse submissions that study recent advancements in mobile
persuasive technology from various perspectives.
As people differ in their susceptibility to different persuasive
we are interested in approaches that move beyond the notion of ione size
fits alli and focus on adaptive and personalized mobile persuasive
and sustain usersi interest over time by considering different personality
Moreover, we invite contributions that discuss the concept of context
We are interested to identify how different types of context can be used
combined to support persuasive techniques (e.g. location information and
usersi personality or mood).
Another topic of interest refers to how timely and proactive delivery of
information can enhance the persuasive potential of an approach in mobile
Information has to be provided to the user at the appropriate time, rather
assuming that they will find it themselves.


The workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

* Persuasive technologies for a sustainable environment
* Mobile persuasion designs
* Context-aware mobile persuasion
* Timing of mobile persuasive interventions
* Emerging possibilities for mobile persuasion through new technologies
* Personalization and recommendation technologies for mobile persuasion
* Novel applications (e.g. for energy efficiency, waste reduction,
  green mobility, water conservation)
* Evaluation of mobile persuasive technologies
* Ethical Considerations in Mobile persuasion
