HCI goes to the zoo

Webber, Sarah, Carter, Marcus, Watters, Jason, Krebs, Bethany, Sherwen, Sally, Mancini, Clara, French, Fiona and O'Hara, Kenton (2016) HCI goes to the zoo. In: CHI'16: CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, May 2016, San Jose California, USA.


This workshop will explore research into interactive and digital technologies in zoos, aquariums and wildlife parks. Such sites are making increasing use of technology in their work to foster educational, emotional and entertaining connections between visitors and animals, with the goal of transforming attitudes to wildlife and conservation. Bringing together HCI researchers with interests in zoos (as a design context) and animals (as a design user), as well as animal welfare and behavior experts, this workshop will further our understanding of what it means to design and use technology in this space at the intersection of the human and animal worlds.
