Hosted by British HCI, the workshop will take place in Lincoln on the 13th of July 2015. The event will provide a forum for the Animal Computer Interaction (ACI) community to review and evaluate the current ACI research landscape and to identify and address themes that continue to emerge as this research field grows. We will examine the research from a multidisciplinary view and consider social, ethical challenges as well as various design applications.
Submissions (deadline 31st May) are welcome from a variety of disciplines, including but not limited to, ethology, animal biology, veterinary research, farming technology, animal behavior, human computer interaction, social computing. Submissions should include: (i) 2-4 page position papers in CHI ACM Extended Abstract Format; submission of both completed and in-progress work is encouraged (ii) additionally, we welcome 1 paragraph ‘expression of interests’ from researchers that have not yet conducted ACI work but are interested in integrating ACI applications, principles, or methodologies into their own research area.
