About INT9

The Intelligent Narrative Technologies track represents the ninth iteration of a series of gatherings dedicated to advancing research in artificial intelligence for the computational understanding and expression of narrative. Our goal is to contribute to this forward momentum by congregating a multidisciplinary group of researchers and practitioners to share their latest work at the intersection of narrative and technology.

INT9 will be celebrated as a track of the 9th International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling, a historic shift from prior gatherings, which have been organized as workshops. Celebrating INT9 at ICIDS reflects how mature our field has become. Concordantly, submissions to the INT9 track should be appropriate of conference-level works in and around intelligent narrative technologies.

Previous meetings have brought together computer scientists, psychologists, narrative theorists, media theorists, artists, writers, and members of the interactive entertainment industry. From this broad expertise, the workshop focuses on computational systems to represent, reason about, create, adapt, and perform interactive and non-interactive narrative experiences. This also includes fundamental research in relevant fields such as natural language processing, believable virtual characters, commonsense reasoning, computer vision, computational media, and human storytelling.

If you are interested in submitting your work for review by the INT community, please ensure your first keyword is “intelligent narrative technologies” when you submit your paper through the ICIDS EasyChair portal:

We hope to continue to attract researchers and practitioners from a diverse range of backgrounds, as well as expand the INT community, in order to foster multidisciplinary collaborations across the field. See you in Los Angeles!
