Claremont Graduate University School of Information Systems and Technology (SISAT) will be hosting a major international conference on persuasive technology in April.  This emerging field impacts various academic disciplines such as psychology, education, politics and policy and technology.  


Persuasive Technology is all about using Information and Communications Technology to change what we think and how we act. We are just entering the era of persuasive technology, of interactive computing systems designed to change people’s attitudes and behaviors. Persuasive 2009 builds on the very successful prior conferences held at Eindhoven, The Netherlands, Stanford University and Oulu, Finland. The Claremont conference will assemble people from all parts of the world interested in such technologies by providing their insights into how video games, mobile phone applications, web sites and social networking sites can be designed to motivate and influence people to think and act in new ways.
