The 19th International Conference on Persuasive Technology 2024
10 – 12 April 2024, Wollongong Australia

Welcome to the 19th International Conference on Persuasive Technology 2024 Conference, hosted by the University of Wollongong, Wollongong, Australia, 10 – 12 April 2024.

Persuasive technology is a vibrant interdisciplinary research field, focusing on the design, development and evaluation of technologies aimed at influencing people’s attitudes and/or behaviors through informed persuasion, but not through coercion or deception. The research community aims at enriching people’s lives in various domains such as health, sustainability, education and well-being, by supporting the setting and achieving of goals they set for themselves, and thus changing their behaviours. The 2024 conference will be hosted by the University of Wollongong.
