INTETAIN 2008 Workshop on Integrating Technologies for Interactive Stories
ITIS: Integrating Technologies for Interactive Stories
7th January 2008, Playa del Carmen, Cancun, Mexico.

Deadline now extended to October 21st 2007

Interactive Story has the potential to revolutionise entertainment. As a research area, however, it is becoming increasingly disparate; although groundbreaking work is being done, there has thus far been only minimal consideration of integration. To effectively further the field, the exchange of ideas and the consideration of their integration have become necessary. Without such an effort, there may be no way to create a single interactive story system of sufficiently high quality. The ITIS workshop aims to encourage the integration of techniques for interactive stories and further collaboration between research groups. It will bring together researchers from different aspects of interactive stories, and should aid in ultimately leading to interactive story systems which are more complete and entertaining.

Narrative is a pervasive aspect of human culture in both entertainment and education. As the reliance on digital technology for both entertainment and education technology increases, the need for more innovative approaches to represent, perform, and adapt narrative experiences increases as well.The term "narrative intelligence" was coined to refer to the ability in both humans and computers to organize experience into narrative form.
