We are very pleased to announce Persuasive Technology 2013, Sydney, Australia, April 3-5 2013.


Persuasive Technology is a vibrant interdisciplinary research field, focusing on the design and
development of interactive technologies that may create, maintain, or change human thought and
behavior. The combination of research methods from rhetoric, social psychology, and communication
with cutting-edge mobile and information technologies brings the special flavor of the Persuasive
Technology conference series.

The 8th International Conference on Persuasive Technology (Persuasive-2013) will be held in Sydney,
Australia, and will build on the success of previous conferences held at Eindhoven, Stanford, Oulu,
Copenhagen, Claremont, Columbus, and Linköping. Academics, students, and practitioners interested
