If you have any questions about the workshop topics, if you plan to submit a paper, or have any other questions about the workshop please e-mail the programme chairs. We look forward to receiving your submissions.

Topics workshop: Topics for submissions include, but are not limited to:

    Design & Development

  • Supporting sustained system use
  • Designing BCSSs and persuasive technology for long-term effectiveness
  • Countering attrition
  • Engagement, Personalization, Integration, Connectivity, and Changes in Persuasive Technology.
  • High tech, human touch/humanizing technology.
  • Interactive visualizations for personalization and social support.
  • Design guidelines for the design, implementation and evaluation of BCSSs.
  • Persuasive prompts to create engagement and involvement: Virtual environments, ambient visualizations, etc.
  • Developing just-in-time persuasive feedback to support activities real-time and offline (e.g., triggers and alerts), using data generated by smart sensors, self-tracking devices, wearable’s, etc.
  • Connectivity designs for social support, e.g. for lifestyle change & wellbeing.
  • Persuasive profiling to personalize interventions.
  • Ethical issues of persuasive technology, big data and BCSSs.
  • Value proposition design to create BCSSs that have value in practice for all stake-holders, implementation issues.
  • Persuasive strategies related to different outcomes (engage-
    ment/resilience/attitudes/compliance/behaviors) and levels (individual/community/society) of change.

  • Predicting long-term effectiveness of BCSSs
  • Measuring the impact of BCSSs and smart persuasive environments on individuals, community, and society – immediate or long-term
  • Conducting longitudinal studies with BCSSs
  • Measures of long-term efficacy
  • Evaluation methods for measuring various aspects of BCSSs; process and products measurements.
  • Advanced big data analytics for measuring and interpreting self-tracking data from wearables, multi- sensor data, etc.
  • Adequate design for measuring the effect of persuasive strategies on task adherence during usage and long-term effects (fractional factorial designs).
  • Frameworks and methodologies to measure A/B/C-Changes (attitude, behavior or compliance).
  • Profiling personalities and matching them with persuasive strategies.
  • Multimodal cues and the effects on adherence and outcomes.
  • Advanced analytics to predict adherence, and to identify usage patterns and its effects on adherence.
  • Evaluation of persuasiveness of different BCSSs (mobile, ubiquitous, ambient technologies, virtual environments, sensor-based, etc.).
  • Design guidelines for practice, based on evaluation studies.

For any submissions we wish to highlight that this year’s workshop aims at discussing especially the challenges that occur while developing effective coaching strategies and technologies; what data is used for the development of better fitted persuasive systems; and/or the evaluation thereof. Therefore we encourage authors to reflect on the challenges they face in this light, and possibilities to overcome these challenges. We also welcome position papers under this workshop theme.

All Papers will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. Accepted research papers and work-in-progress papers are planned to be published via CEUR Workshop Proceedings.
