Workshop objectives

Due to its interdisciplinary nature, research on persuasion in transport applications is fairly scattered across communities as diverse as psychology, transportation science, computer science and automotive user interfaces. We would like to take this workshop as an opportunity to achieve a first step towards a systematic overview of the field of persuasion in transport applications.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together people with interest in Persuasion and/or Automotive research and to discuss, share knowledges, and take away insights, strategies, and tips of how to use persuasive technology to improve the driver-vehicle interaction loop.
Workshop topics of interest include

  • Theoretical work focusing on theories and models, modalities, and strategies (i.e., what and how to persuade) and
  • Practical work/design studies toward optimal applications for vehicle environments (behavior change, social interaction, cooperative self organizaion, gamification approaches/serious games, incentives, etc.).
