about INT6

The Intelligent Narrative Technologies (INT) workshop series aims to advance research in artificial intelligence for the computational understanding and expression of narrative. This workshop brings together a multidisciplinary group of researchers including computer scientists, psychologists, narrative theorists, media theorists, artists, and members of the interactive entertainment industry. From this broad expertise, the workshop focuses on computational systems to represent, reason about, adapt, and perform interactive and non-interactive narrative experiences. This also includes fundamental research in relevant fields such as natural language processing, believable agents, commonsense reasoning and human narrative experiences.

Narrative plays a central role in human culture and has a deep structural role in shaping how people view the world and understand their experiences. As in past meetings of the workshop series, INT 6 will gather researchers around the topics of computationally representing and reasoning on narratives, designs for interacting with narratives, applications of interactive narratives, and tools and techniques for gathering, annotating, and authoring narratives. Participants will be encouraged to forward technical contributions to these challenges along with conceptual and theoretical frameworks or positions for approaching these issues. By co-locating with AIIDE the INT 6 workshop will be able to best leverage the strong synergies between interactive narratives and other forms of digital entertainment such as games. The recent resurgence of interactive narratives as a media form and proliferation of tools for authoring interactive narratives (e.g. Inform7, Twine, inklewriter, StoryNexus, etc.) highlights these potential connections and the value of exchange of ideas.
