Call For Papers

The Fourth International Conference on Persuasive Technology
April 26-29, 2009
Claremont, California, USA
(Proceedings to be published by ACM and available in ACM Digital Library)

Persuasive Technology is all about using Information and Communications Technology to change what we think and do. We are just entering the era of persuasive technology, of interactive computing systems designed to change people's attitudes and behaviors. Persuasive 2009 builds on the successful prior conferences held at Eindhoven, Stanford and Oulu. The Claremont conference will assemble people from all parts of the world interested in such technologies by sharing their insights into how video games, mobile phone applications, web sites and social networking sites can be designed to motivate and influence people.

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 2009 to be held at the Claremont Colleges campus, in Claremont, California.
