ACI'14 - Animal-Computer Interaction: Pushing Boundaries beyond 'Human'

Workshop, NordiCHI'14, 27th October 2014, Helsinki

An increasing body of work originating from within the HCI community is shaping the emerging discipline of Animal-Computer Interaction (ACI), aiming to: study the interaction between animals, technology and humans in naturalistic settings; develop user-centered technology that supports animals and interspecies relationships; inform user-centered approaches to the design of technology intended for animals.
The ACI'14 workshop aims to bring together researchers who have worked in areas relate to or are interested in ACI, from within HCI or other relevant disciplines. Through a range of collaborative activities (including short presentations, group design exercises and plenary discussions) the workshop will explore issues relevant to ACI, for example in relation to accessibility, methodology and ethics.
We invite position papers - up to four pages in ACM extended abstract format - on theories, applications and practices related, for example, to: interaction modalities for diverse sensorial apparatuses, cognitive capabilities, and ergonomic characteristics; methodologies potentially useful for researching, designing or evaluating multispecies technology; ethical frameworks and approaches possibly appropriate for working with humans and other animals.
