Despite the enormous commercial successes of products such as Nintendogs, very little is known about people's interactions with artificial representations of animals. However there is an increasing body of research in different disciplines which could be used to better understand such interactions. The Reign of Catz & Dogz at CHI 2009 is a one day workshop which will bring together researchers in an inter-disciplinary, international and multi-cultural setting to explore the relevant issues surrounding interactions with virtual creatures and the role such creatures will play in the future.
