The 9th International Conference on Persuasive Technology


Persuasive Technology (PT) is a vibrant interdisciplinary research field, focusing on the design and development of interactive technologies aimed at changing users’ attitudes or behaviors through persuasion and social influence, but not through coercion or deception.

The 9th International Conference on Persuasive Technology (PERSUASIVE 2014) will be hosted in Padua, Italy, on May 21-23, and will build on the success of previous conferences held at Eindhoven, Stanford, Oulu, Copenhagen, Claremont, Columbus, Linköping, and Sydney. Academics, students, and practitioners interested in theories, design and applications development related to persuasion are invited to submit their work for presentation at the conference.

The language of the conference is English.
