5th International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling
November 12th - 15th, 2012
Technology Park of San Sebastián, Spain
ICIDS is the premier international conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling (IDS), bringing together researchers interested in presenting recent results, sharing novel techniques, and exchanging ideas about this exciting new media. IDS redefines the narrative experience by empowering the audience to significantly participate in the story due to advances in technology. As such, it offers new possibilities for communication, education and entertainment, through the enriching of characters with intelligent behavior, the collaboration of humans and machines in the creative process, and the combination of disciplines for improving the user experience.
ICIDS emphasises on several aspects of Computer Science, specially on research in Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Environments and Human-Computer Interaction; topics include automated reasoning, computational creativity, multi-agent systems, narrative intelligence, natural language generation and understanding, user modelling, and smart graphics. Furthermore, IDS is inherently a multidisciplinary field. To create novel applications in which users play a significant role during the development of a story, new concepts and theoretical works on Digital Humanities, New Media Studies and Interactive Arts are needed.
We welcome research papers and demonstrations – including interactive narrative art – presenting new scientific results, innovative technologies, case studies, creative insights, best practice showcases, or improvements to existing techniques and approaches in the research field of Interactive Digital Storytelling and its possible applications in other fields, e.g. videogames, virtual/online worlds, e-learning, training, and edutainment.
