Workshop on Persuasive Technologies in Challenging Contexts

In this workshop we want to discuss how persuasive technologies can be designed for and evaluated in challenging contexts.
By challenging contexts we mean environments such as cars, factories, public spaces, hospitals etc.
In the workshop we want to discuss the specific characteristics of these contexts and how these very specific context ingredients influence the design and evaluation of persuasive technologies.
