Call For Papers
This year, the International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling (ICIDS 8) will take place in Denmark at Aalborg University’s campus in central Copenhagen.

ICIDS has its origin in a series of related international conferences that ran between 2001 and 2007 ( Since 2008, ICIDS became the premier annual venue that gathers researchers, developers, practitioners and theorists to present and share the latest innovations, insights and techniques in the expanding field of interactive storytelling and the technologies that support it. The field re-groups a highly dynamic and interdisciplinary community, in which narrative studies, computer science, interactive and immersive technologies, the arts, and creativity converge to develop new expressive forms in a myriad of domains that include artistic projects, interactive documentaries, cinematic games, serious games, assistive technologies, edutainment, pedagogy, museum science, advertisement and entertainment, to mention a few. The conference has a long-standing tradition of bringing together academia, industry, designers, developers and artists into an interdisciplinary dialogue through a mix of keynote lectures, long and short article presentations, posters, workshops, and very lively demo sessions.

We welcome contributions from a large range of fields and disciplines related to interactive storytelling, including computational narrative, narratology, computer science, human-computer interaction, media studies and media production, game studies, game design and development, semiotics, museum science, edutainment, virtual and augmented reality, cognitive science, digital humanities, interactive arts and transmedia studies. We encourage original contributions in the forms of research papers, position papers, posters and demonstrations, presenting new scientific results, innovative theories, novel technological implementations, case studies and creative artistic projects in the field of Interactive Digital Storytelling and its possible applications in different domains. We particularly welcome research on topics in the following four areas:


    Theories and aesthetics of interactive storytelling
    Narratology for interactive media
    Cognitive, conative and affective aspects of narrative interactive systems
    Models of narrative logic

    Autonomous agents and multi-agent systems
    Synthetic actors
    Semantic knowledge representation and reasoning about stories
    Natural language generation and understanding
    Non-verbal interactive stories
    User modelling and narrative user interfaces
    Authoring modes and tools for interactive digital storytelling

The review process for ICIDS will be double blind. Authors should remove all identifying information from their submissions. If you are uncertain as to how to anonymize your submission, the following guidelines are worth looking at:

All submissions must follow the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format, available at: Papers must be written in English, and only electronic submissions in PDF format will be considered for review.Submissions that receive high ratings in the peer review process will be selected for publication by the program committee as Springer LNCS conference proceedings. For the final print-ready version, the submission of source files (Microsoft Word/LaTeX, TIF/EPS) and a signed copyright form will be required.

All submissions will be processed using the Easychair Online Conference System. Authors are advised to register a new account well in advance of the paper submission deadline:
