1st International Workshop on

Pervasive Persuasive Systems for Behavior Change

(PerPersuasion 2019)

in conjunction with IEEE PerCom, 11-15, March 2019

SCOPE

Recently, the technologies for changing people’s attitudes or behaviors through persuasion and social influence are focused. It is called persuasive technology or persuasive system and is expected to contribute supporting productivity, well-being, and efficiency.

To realize an effective and appropriate intervention to the human behavior, various pervasive computing technologies such as a mobile sensing, activity recognition & prediction, and attention sensing have a quite important role.

In this workshop, we would like to have a deep and wide discussion with various researchers both from industry and academia. Especially, we would like to focus on the technological aspect as follows.

  • Mobile sensing technologies for persuasive system
  • Sensing technologies for internal states (emotion, stress)
  • Socially influencing persuasive systems
  • Supplemental system for persuasion
  • Experimental supplements
  • Computer-supported influence
  • Context-aware interrupting mechanism
  • Multimodal interaction
  • Persuasive dialog system
  • Just-in-time intervention/notification technologies
  • Gamification for enhancing the effect
  • Personalized persuasion
  • Design of unconscious persuasion
  • Design of feedback
  • Case studies in the real environment

Shishi-odoshi is a traditional gimmick used in a Japanese garden. It uses a water to swing a bamboo pendulum and generate a sound of rock. It was initially proposed for getting rid of harmful animals from farms.
