Conference theme

Persuasive Technology and Design:  Enhancing Sustainability and Health

The Persuasive Technology Conference Series is for academics,  practitioners, and policy makers with an interest in research, theory, technologies, design, and applications related to understanding  and predicting persuasion processes and outcomes.  Our interest is in how information and communications technologies might be used to help individuals and organizations better understand what people think, feel, and do.   We are especially interested in how such technologies have been or are being  used to enhance global human welfare.  We are also interested in how the technologies might be used in the future. Agencies, organizations, or companies interested in providing financial support for the conference should contact the conference chair, Curt Haugtvedt at or 614-292-6228.
