Workshop on Understanding Persuasion: HCI as a Medium for Persuasion. Workshop @ British HCI 2015
This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners to share their experiences, concerns and ideas on how to address the role of persuasive technology design within different application domains. This will be of interest to individuals working in decision-making, behaviour change, persuasive technology, and influence via technology, from a variety of application domains such as health, security, social media, e-governance radicalisation and education (amongst others).
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from different disciplines to share experiences, concerns and ideas about the theoretical frameworks that they employ in their domains. Attendants will explore how persuasion works in different research domains, the advantages of different theoretical frameworks for designing persuasive systems, and the ethical dilemmas associated with persuasion in the different domains.
We invite interested researchers to submit a: 2-3 page position paper in CHI ACM Extended Abstract Format relating to the applications, theoretical frameworks, and/or ethical considerations of persuasive systems in your area of research.
Accepted position papers will be published on the workshop website prior to the start of the event and authors will be allotted a short time slot to present their position at the start of the workshop. The subsequent section of the workshop will involve participants engaging in several “live” influence activities in different domains and discussing the merits of each approach. Attendees will then split up to apply the theoretical knowledge to design subversive interventions. These interventions will then be moved across to other groups to design counter interventions.
Please direct queries and submissions to James Nicholson (email@example.com).
