Ambient persuasion (AP) is the utilization of Ambient Intelligence (AmI) systems and services for the design of Persuasive Technologies (PT), which are systems that aims at changing people’s attitude and behavior. In this workshop we will discuss the interplay between between the two fields of AmI and PT. AmI systems enables us to tailor persuasive interventions exactly at the right time and in the right place, which is crucial for the persuasive success. This strategy holds huge potentials to boost the persuasive effect, but also bears some methodological and ethical challenges. In the workshop we will discuss ambient persuasion through different lenses including theoretical foundations, frameworks and heuristics for the design of AP applications, application areas for AP including health and wellbeing, case studies and examples of AP systems, methods and tools for research on AP, and ethical and privacy questions regarding AP.

This will be a half-day workshop starting at 13:00.
