Personalizing persuasive technologies can increase their efficacy at motivating the desired behavior change. Building on the success of the 2017 workshop which witnessed 12 peer-reviewed paper presentations, one keynote presentation, and over 40 participants from over 15 different countries, this year’s workshop aims to advance the research area even further by addressing outstanding challenges and opportunities identified during the previous workshop. The workshop aims to connect a diverse group of researchers and practitioners interested in personalizing and tailoring persuasive technologies to share their experiences, ideas, discuss key challenges facing the area, and how to move the field forward. The workshop will cover broad areas of personalization and tailoring, including but not limited to personalization models, design and evaluation methods, and personalized persuasive technologies. We welcome submissions and ideas from any domain of persuasive technology and HCI including, but not limited to health, sustainability, games, safety and security, marketing, eCommerce, entertainment, and education. Workshop papers and ideas will be archived online to be accessible to the general public.

The workshop will consist of a keynote speaker, presentations of accepted papers, small group interaction, and a closing plenary discussion.

The workshop will be held in conjunction with Persuasive Technology 2018, the 13th International Conference on Persuasive Technologies.
