Call for papers

We are happy to invite submissions for the Symposium “Behaviour Change and the Future of Work” that will take place at University College Dublin, Ireland on Friday the 7th of October, 2022.

Aims: The aim of the symposium is to bring together researchers from the behavioural sciences (e.g., economics, psychology, cognitive science, human computer interaction) to discuss new research and developments related to the influence of behaviour change technologies on the workplace. We invite researchers to showcase their work and to discuss novel research for identifying, understanding, and creating the work-based behaviours needed for evolving workplaces.

Keynote speakers: We are very pleased to announce that Professor Anna Cox from University College London Interaction Centre and Dr Sean Rintel from Microsoft Research Cambridge will be the keynote speakers.

Paper submission: An extended abstract (roughly 500 words with a key graph or visualisation of results) or full paper should be submitted to this form by July 31. Authors will be notified of acceptance by August 15.

Arrangements: There is no participation fee and we will cover lunch and coffee/tea for the event. We are optimistically planning to hold the event in-person while continually monitoring the COVID-19 situation. If required, we may switch to an online or hybrid format.

This symposium is organised by the UCD Behavioural Science and Policy Group, the Stirling Behavioural Science Centre, and the Human Computer Interaction (HCI@UCD). We are thankful to the UCD Seed Funding grant and the Royal Society of Edinburgh for funding the event.
