The departments of Technology Management and Industrial Design of Eindhoven University of Technology proudly announce PERSUASIVE 06:


the first international conference on PERSUASIVE technology for human well-being 

18-19 May 2006, Eindhoven, The Netherlands


Conference Aim

Can computers help fight obesity? Can technology motivate you to waste less energy? Can communication devices help overcome racial prejudice? Can a virtual agent persuade you to break your smoking habit? Can a mobile phone help you study? Can a robot challenge you to perform rehabilitation exercises? 


PERSUASIVE 06 is aimed at exploring technology in the service of human well-being, within the broader context of a socially and ecologically sustainable society. Join academic researchers, designers, and technology developers from around the world in investigating the potential of persuasive technologies to positively affect human attitudes and behaviour. 


The goal of PERSUASIVE 06 is to bring together a multidisciplinary group of social scientists studying persuasion, and engineers developing persuasive technologies in areas such as health and rehabilitation, housing, information and communication, and energy conservation, so they can meet, share experiences, present research, and exchange ideas. 


Key themes of the conference include, but are not limited to: (1) Health, comfort, and wellbeing, (2) Sustainability, (3) Education and training, (4) Communication, (5) Decision making, (6) Ethics of persuasive technology, (7) Theories of persuasion and related topics such as motivation, credibility, trust and control.


Call for Papers

Academics and practitioners with an interest in research, theory, technologies, design, and applications related to persuasion are invited to submit their work for presentation at PERSUASIVE 06 at the Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, 18-19 May 2006. 


The conference welcomes original papers that are based on empirical results from studies of persuasive technologies, in particular as they are applied to areas of human well-being. Papers that make substantial advances in theoretical understanding of persuasion or contribute to the development of relevant technologies are also welcome, provided they are clearly related to the overall theme of the conference. Submissions will be rigorously reviewed, using blind peer-review. High quality papers are therefore sought which make substantial contributions to the field. 

Deadline: November 15, 2005.
