26-27 May 2012, 2012 Workshop on Computational Models of Narrative (CMN 2012), Istanbul, Turkey

Date: 26-27 May 2012
Location: Istanbul, Turkey
Deadline: 24 February 2012

Narratives are ubiquitous in human experience. We use them to communicate, convince, explain, and entertain. As far as we know, every society in the world has narratives, which suggests they are rooted in our psychology and serve an important cognitive function. It is becoming increasingly clear that, to truly understand and explain human intelligence, beliefs, and behaviors, we will have to understand why narrative is universal and explain (or explain away) the function it serves.

This meeting will be an appropriate venue for papers addressing fundamental topics and questions regarding narrative. Moreover, the meeting will have a special focus on the identification, collection, and construction of shared resources and corpora that facilitate the computational modeling of narrative. Papers should focus on issues fundamental to computational modeling and scientific understanding, or issues related to building shared resources to advance the field.
