This one-day workshop at NordiCHI’16 aims to examine the interactions and the space between HCI (Human Computer Interaction) and ACI (Animal Computer Interaction) focusing on the transferability of methods and ideas between the fields. Following a goal setting exercise by the delegates, a collaborative session will take place looking at the continual connection between HCI and ACI and examining the transferability of methods and ideas. The aim is to strengthen connected thinking whilst highlighting the exchangeable connecting methods from both ACI and HCI and their subfields such as Child Computer Interaction (CCI) and Human Robot Interaction (HRI), discussing what these fields learn from each other with their similarities and differences mapped. This workshop aims to give the participants an advanced understanding of how the two fields are useful to each other along with shared methodologies and tools in HCI and ACI.
