*ACI2018: Fifth International Conference on Animal-Computer Interaction*

4-6 December 2018, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

**  <>



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 animals’ 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 *connectedness & wellbeing.* We invite
ACI-related contributions from any relevant disciplines, but we
particularly welcome contributions that focus on the connection between
human and animal, or their (joint) well-being. These may include (but are
not limited to):

   - support interspecies communication
   - improve humans’ 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
   - foster ecologically and ethically sustainable forms of interspecies
   interaction and cohabitation.
