Persuasive technologies can be applied in the field of mobility to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide health benefits and cost savings, for example, by encouraging people to use low-energy modes of transportation. At the same time, this task is challenging as it requires a change in everyday habitual behaviors. To facilitate such behavioral changes, 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 collect 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.
