CALL FOR PAPERS: Intelligent Narrative Technologies, 17-18 Jun 2014, Milwaukee WI (U.S.A.)

http://int7.westphal.drexel.edu/?page_id=8

============================================================

The Intelligent Narrative Technologies (INT) workshop series aims to 
advance research in artificial intelligence for the computational
understanding, expression, and creation of narrative. Previous 
installments of this workshop have brought together a multidisciplinary 
group of researchers such as computer scientists, psychologists, narrative 
theorists, media theorists, artists, and members of the interactive 
entertainment industry. From this broad expertise, the INT series focuses 
on computational systems to represent, reason about, adapt, author, and 
perform interactive and non-interactive narrative experiences.

(int)7, the seventh workshop in the series, will highlight both the 
computational and aesthetic aspects of narrative systems and the narrative 
experiences they create. It will be co-located with the 2014 Electronic 
Literature Organization Conference (ELO 2014) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. ELO 
is the most significant international organization and conference series 
for creators and scholars of digital fiction, poetry, and drama. By 
co-locating with ELO we hope to create an opportunity for greater 
awareness between the two communities. INT work can be strengthened by 
awareness of the challenges and goals of authors creating a wide variety 
of computational literary works, as well as the models being developed by 
scholars of this work. The ELO community can be strengthened by greater 
awareness of the types of basic research undertaken and experimental 
systems created by the INT community, broadening conceptions of the field 
and imaginations of its possible futures. It is possible tha t co-location 
may even result in identifying potential collaborations between members of 
the two communities.


ILLUSTRATIVE TOPICS OF INTEREST:

         ? Computational (interactive) narrative systems and applications
         ? Story generation
         ? Emergent narrative systems including simulations, agents, and multi-agent systems
         ? Computational creativity in narrative systems
         ? Cognitive theories, models, and systems for narrative
         ? Story understanding
         ? Models of narrative genres, styles, and techniques
         ? Believable characters
         ? Virtual and embodied conversational agents as characters
         ? Affect and emotional modeling
         ? Natural language generation and understanding for narrative
         ? Computational discourse analysis techniques
         ? Automatic character dialog
         ? AI for discourse control such as text, graphic art, and camera control
         ? Narrative presence and immersion in virtual environments
         ? User interaction for interactive narrative applications
         ? Narrative authoring tools
         ? Computational narrative applications in serious games such as learning and health
         ? Evaluation and research methods
         ? Complete (interactive) narrative systems and user studies
         ? Computational models of poetics, narrative theories, and craft knowledge from narrative creators
         ? Interdisciplinary collaboration models for interactive narrative research


PAPER, DEMO & PANEL SUBMISSIONS:

We invite submissions of full papers (6 pages plus 1 page of references) 
describing completed or ongoing relevant research. Short papers (3 pages 
plus 1 page of references), demo proposals (1 page) and Panel proposals (1 
page) may also be submitted. Speakers in the panel proposal should be 
already confirmed upon submission. Position papers are welcome.

Paper submissions will be reviewed by an interdisciplinary program 
committee from both the INT and ELO communities. In addition to the 
traditional INT submissions, we encourage submissions that address, 
together, both the computational and aesthetic aspects of computational 
narrative. We especially welcome artistic, theoretical, and design-focused 
works that aim to be in dialogue with the INT community.

All accepted papers will be published in the INT 7 workshop technical 
report by the AAAI Press. Submissions must be anonymized for double blind 
reviews and formatted according to AAAI guidelines.
