Behaviour Lab runs session at HCI International 2015 Conference

The Leeds Behaviour Lab team organised a session focusing on behaviour change technology at a recent Human-Computer Interaction conference. HCI International is one of the most prestigious annual events in the HCI/User Experience calendar and this year it took place in Los Angeles, USA.

The session entitled ‘Experience Design for Behavior Change‘ brought together researchers and practitioners from Europe and America. It is the third in a series of annual events dedicated to this research area, and as in previous years it was chaired by Marc Fabri from Leeds Beckett University and Marientina Gotsis, Assistant Professor at the Creative Media and Behavioral Health Centre, University of Southern California. Papers covered the domains of physical health, mental well-being, responsible drinking, happiness, travel choices and generally living in an independent, sustainable way.

Below is a selection of papers. Full proceedings can be downloaded from the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science website (Part I / Part II / Part III)
