This year's conference theme is ‘embodied dialogues’. Although specifically
focussed, the theme is very broad in the connections that can be made from
multiple angles, in order to encourage engagement with and contributions to
the conference from a wide range of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary
perspectives. Submissions that relate to this year's conference theme are
especially welcome, but high quality submissions are welcome regardless.
Topics 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.
   - 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.
