4-6 August 2013, 2013 Workshop on Computational Models of Narrative (CMN 2013), Hamburg, Germany

Date: 4-6 August 2013
Location: Hamburg, Germany
Deadline: 24 February 2013

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 and to what extent narrative is universal and explain (or explain away) the function it serves. The aim of this workshop series is to address key questions that advance our understanding of narrative and our ability to model it computationally.

This workshop will be an appropriate venue for papers addressing fundamental topics and questions regarding narrative. The workshop will be held as a satellite event of the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society (to be held in Berlin 31st July - 3rd August), and so will have a special focus on the cognitive science of narrative.

For more information, see http://narrative.csail.mit.edu/ws13. Questions should be directed to .

The Programme Committee cordially invites all researchers to submit their papers for presentation. Papers should be relevant to issues fundamental to the computational modeling and scientific understanding of narrative. We accept both finished research and more tentative exploratory work. Paper submission deadline: February 24, 2013
