****************************************
The Reign of Catz & Dogz '08
The second symposium on the role of
virtual creatures in a computerised society,
part of AISB'08 in Aberdeen, UK 1st April 2008
http://www.catz-and-dogz.org.uk/
****************************************

FINAL REMINDER -- CALL FOR PAPERS - deadline is Monday 14th January 2008

*** All papers accepted by the symposium will be considered for inclusion in a special section in the multi-disciplinary journal "Interaction Studies" scheduled to appear late 2008 or early in 2009 ***

The Reign of Catz & Dogz aims to explore aspects of interaction with anthropomorphised embodied devices such as Aibo, Pleo, Paro and Nabaztag, software such as Catz, Dogz and Nintendogs, as well as the numerous non-commercial artificial creatures and software that have been developed in research labs world-wide. The huge popularity of many of the commercial examples of such artefacts provides evidence of the widespread appeal of interacting with artificial representations of creatures - however the academic investigation of such interactions remains scarce. We therefore invite researchers working in areas relevant to the theme of the symposium to submit papers to the symposium chairs by 14th January 2008.
