Paper Submission deadline: 30 November 2023

In a world in which technology is increasingly present in people’s lives, and changing human behavior and attitudes is often the key to solving many societal and personal problems, studying how technology might be used to influence humans (in their behavior, attitudes and information processing), is paramount.

Persuasive technology is a vibrant interdisciplinary research field, focusing on the design, development and evaluation of technologies aimed at influencing people’s attitudes and/or behaviors through informed persuasion, but not through coercion or deception. The research community aims at enriching people’s lives in various domains such as health, sustainability, education and well-being, by supporting the setting and achieving of goals they set for themselves, and thus change their behaviors.

The 2024 conference will be hosted by the University of Wollongong, Australia. The previous versions of conferences have been successfully organized in Eindhoven (2023), Doha (2022), Bournemouth (2021, online due to COVID-19), Aalborg (2020, online due to COVID-19), Limassol (2019), Waterloo (2018), Amsterdam (2017), Salzburg (2016), Chicago (2015), Padua (2014), Sydney (2013), Linköping (2012), Columbus (2011), Copenhagen (2010), Claremont (2009), Oulu (2008), Palo Alto (2007), and Eindhoven (2006). The conference series seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia working with various topics of persuasive technology. These researchers have very diverse scientific backgrounds, ranging from engineering, computer science, human-computer interaction, design, psychology, ethics, communication, and many other specializations.

We welcome the following categories of papers:
- Technical papers that introduce novel persuasive technology approaches and solutions alongside evidence of their potential.
- Empirical studies which seek to provide evidence and explanation of methods, principles and theories in persuasive systems.
- Conceptual-theoretical papers which primarily seek to contribute to the general understanding of the field’s core themes and specificities.
- Other papers, e.g. literature reviews or experience reports.

The scope of the conference includes (but is not limited to) the following topics:
- Persuasive systems’ design
- Behavior change support systems
- Interaction with persuasive systems, interfaces, visualization
- Interactive agents in persuasive systems
- AI for persuasive technology
- Tailored and personalized persuasion
- Gamification for persuasion
- Evaluation and validation of persuasive applications
- Software architectures and technical infrastructures for persuasive systems
- Smart environments, e.g. IoT, and persuasion
- Digital Marketing, eCommerce, eTourism and SMART ecosystems
- Motivational, cognitive and perceptual factors in persuasive technology
- Application domains for persuasive technologies such as safety, healthy living, sustainable behaviors, learning and training, marketing and commerce, work environments, organizations
- Positive technology
- Humanizing and/or dehumanizing effects of persuasive technology
- Values and ethics in persuasive technology
- Privacy, perceived security and trust in persuasive technology
- Resilience and counter-persuasion
- Detecting persuasive strategies in social media posts
- Encouraging adherence to safety measures in pandemic situations

Submission Types
Regular Papers
This format is suitable for original research, which is completed work at the time of submission and, regardless of the length of the paper, is a self-sufficient scientific contribution. Papers can be full papers (12 pages, excluding references) or short papers (6 pages, excluding references) in Springer LNCS format, and describe work not presented, published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and be devoted a timeslot for oral presentation. Selected papers will be invited for submission to journals.

Extended Abstracts
We also welcome extended abstract submissions to showcase the results of already conducted studies where authors do not wish to publish them as regular papers in the conference proceedings but rather present them at the conference for discussions that can shape the final version. The studies will be also be devoted a timeslot for oral presentation in a special session. Extended abstracts must not be more than 2 pages in Springer LNCS format (including references). Accepted abstracts will be included in the adjunct conference proceedings (CEUR Workshop Proceedings). Selected papers in this category, based on their quality, level of timeliness and relevance, and completion, will also be invited for submission to journals.

Posters or Technical Demonstrations
This format is suitable for descriptions of smaller studies, project outlines, technical demonstrations, or work-in-progress. Authors should submit a 2-page abstract in Springer LNCS format. Accepted posters will be included in the adjunct conference proceedings (CEUR Workshop Proceedings). Posters will be displayed and presented during a dedicated session of the conference. For abstracts on technical demonstrations or other physical or virtual setups, presenting at the conference an actual poster is not obligatory (although possible): such presentations can also consist solely of the technical demonstration or setup.

Doctoral Consortium Papers
The Doctoral Consortium is a special session of the conference where PhD students 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 4-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. Accepted abstracts will be included in the adjunct conference proceedings (CEUR Workshop Proceedings) unless opted out by the student.

Workshops and Tutorial Proposals
Workshops are meant to gather a number of people to work interactively on an emerging topic and exchange ideas. Tutorials are intended to help people attending the conference organize a related scientific meeting on a specific topic or instruct on a specific practice. Approved workshops and tutorials will be announced on the conference website. Tutorials and workshops will take place during a half- or full-day session before the conference. If you want to organize a workshop, please submit a proposal as a maximum 4-page description in Springer LNCS format, including a description of the topic, motivation, organization, expected outcome, and supporting materials. Workshop and tutorial descriptions will be included in the adjunct conference proceedings (CEUR Workshop Proceedings). Workshop chairs must commit to create their Call for Papers and their website and EasyChair accounts within one week from the notification.

Submission Guidelines
Please consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines when preparing your paper:
Make sure to use the Springer LNCS proceedings template, either for LaTeX or for Word, when preparing your paper.
Remember the page limit for each type of submission.
Your paper must be anonymised as we implement a double-blind review process. That means removing author names, emails and affiliations and avoiding any explicit reference to the authors’ identity in the paper.
We look forward to receiving your submission! Please submit your manuscript through the conference website.

Accepted regulars (full and short) will be published by Springer in a volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.( Workshop and demo descriptions, abstracts from posters, extended abstracts and doctoral consortium papers will be published as an adjunct proceedings volume with an ISBN (CEUR Workshop Proceedings).

Extended versions of the best papers and selected papers from the conference will be invited to submit in a special issue on Persuasive Technology 2024 in “Behaviour and Information Technology”, Taylor and Francis publication.
