[CALL] Call for Papers/Participation: Persuasive Urban Mobility workshop @ Chicago, IL, USA, on June 3, 2015

June 3, 2015, Chicago, IL, USA
Adjunct to The 10th International Conference on Persuasive Technology
June 4-5, 2015, Chicago, IL, USA
Persuasive technologies can be applied in the field of mobility to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide health benefits and cost savings, as in the case of encouraging people to use low-energy modes of transportation. At the same time, however, this task is challenging as it requires changes in everyday habitual behaviors. To facilitate such behavioral shifts, various kinds of persuasive techniques can be investigated and technologies deployed, such as targeted smartphone apps or ubiquitous sensing systems.
The Persuasive Urban Mobility workshop brings together international experts in urban modes of transportation to exchange experiences, discuss limitations, and elaborate on new concepts for encouraging behavior change in mobility. It is an excellent opportunity for participants to submit and present their work to obtain valuable feedback for further research.
The scientific committee will review all submissions and accept the best papers according to their significance for the workshop topic and their potential to inspire discussions. All selected papers will be published, indexed, and accessible online. All high quality papers will be considered for inclusion in a journal special issue.
Submission Deadline: April 27, 2015
Authors Notification: May 1, 2015
Final Manuscript Due: May 20, 2015
Workshop Date: June 3, 2015
Full research papers must be in English and must not exceed 12 pages. Research-in-progress papers should be limited to 4 pages. Papers should be formatted in Springer’s LNCS format.
