******************************************************************

A Workshop on Behavior Change Technologies in the Everyday Life

November 6, from 5:30 - 7pm (Central European Time)

https://behaviorchangetech.wordpress.com/

at the Philosophy of Human-Technology Relations 2020 Conference

https://www.utwente.nl/en/phtr/



Organizers:

Rúben Gouveia <https://rubengouveia.com/>, Roelof de Vries, Bas de Boer
(University of Twente)

******************************************************************



We gladly invite you to participate in an interdisciplinary virtual
workshop on Behavior Change Technologies in the Everyday Life
<https://behaviorchangetech.wordpress.com/>.


CALL FOR PARTICIPATION



People’s use of behavior change technologies (BCT’s) is strongly connected
to the activities and experiences that occur alongside the use of these
technologies. Behavior change often involves other people (e.g. friends,
family), and activities (e.g. work, jogging) and is connected to a high
level of emotionality, deriving from people’s lives, worries, hopes, and
interests. However, the ways in which BCTs are enmeshed in the everyday
life are often overlooked within research and practice.



In this workshop, we explore how BCT’s incorporate and influence everyday
life from a range of perspectives (e.g., design, computer science,
philosophy). Our goal is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of
researchers and practitioners to discuss notions and applications of
everyday life within behavior change. Reflecting on the notion of “everyday
life” is important for at least two reasons: it allows explicating what
kind of information of the lives of users designers need and analyzing what
kind of desirable everyday life is (implicitly or explicitly) presupposed
in the design of BCTs.



Concretely, we will: (a) introduce and scrutinize different conceptions of
everyday life; (b) reflect on the conceptions of everyday life involved in
the design, development, and evaluation of BCT’s; and (c) discuss the
potential trade-off(s) that must be made between theoretical conceptions of
the everyday life and their materialization in BCTs.
