Call for Papers
The aim of this workshop is to provide a focal point for research and technology dedicated to persuasion, influence, nudge and coercion (PINC). It is particularly concerned with mobile and pervasive technology and aspires to establish a scientific network and community dedicated the combination of these emerging technologies to PINC.
Among the issues the workshop will take on are:
1. How can pervasive technology be deployed in the domain of PINC?
2. When is the appropriate time to begin, reduce or end intervention?
3. Do PINC methods have the potential to lead to durable, long-term behaviour changes, or only short-term changes in behaviour?
4. The behaviour change occurs in a series of stages from precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action and maintenance. Therefore at which of these stages may PINC methods be the most effective?
5. Are PINC methods ethical?
6. How can we extend the scale of intervention in a society using mobile devices?
The workshop is designed as a day-long, highly interactive activity for participants. It is structured around a plan for (novel) ideas around PINC methods on mobile platforms, problem analysis of using PINC methods, solution sharing, documenting best practices and areas for further work and, ultimately inaugurating a new workshop series on this topic.
Participants are required to submit their contributions to the Workshop Submission System (EasyChair – link soon). Participants will be selected based on their anonymous submissions by a program committee; papers will undergo a peer-review (a minimum of three reviews per submission). The length of the submissions should be 4 page Note in CHI Archive Format with 150 word abstract.
