ACI2017: Fourth International Conference on Animal-Computer Interaction
21-23 November 2017, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

In cooperation with ACM<> and SIGCHI<>
Published by ACM Digital Library<>
Partner event to MAC4<><>


ACI is the main international conference on Animal-Computer Interaction, a rapidly growing field that focuses on the interaction between animals and computing-enabled technology. At the crossroad between interaction design, on the one hand, and animal behavioural and welfare science, on the other, the emerging discipline of ACI focuses on:

  *   studying and theorizing the interaction between animals and technology in naturalistic settings
  *   developing user-centered technology to improve animalsí welfare, support animals' activities and foster interspecies relationships
  *   informing animal-centered approaches that enable animals to participate in the design process as stakeholders and contributors.

This year's conference theme is improving relations<>. We invite ACI-related contributions from any relevant disciplines, but we particularly welcome contributions that focus on the improvement of human-animal relations or relations between other animals. These may include (but are not limited to):

  *   support interspecies communication
  *   improve humansí understanding of other animals and their needs
  *   enable humans to take better care of other animals
  *   support animals in activities they do for humans
  *   reduce interspecies conflicts and the impact of human activity on animals
  *   foster ecologically and ethically sustainable forms of interspecies interaction and cohabitation.

We invite the submission of:

  *   long and short papers<> (submission deadline 10th July, midnight PST)
  *   workshop proposals<> (submission deadline 30th June, midnight PST)
  *   doctoral consortium ap<>plications<> (submission deadline 1st September, midnight PST)
  *   video posters and demos<> (submission deadline 1st September, midnight PST)

ACI2017 is in cooperation with ACM<> (Association for Computing Machinery) and SIGCHI<> (Special Interest Group on Computer Human Interaction), and the conference proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library<>. ACI2017 is a partner event to MAC4<>, the conference of Minding Animals International<>.
