31 July - 2 August 2014, Fifth Workshop on Computational Models of Narrative (CMN'14), Quebec City QC, Canada

Date: 31 July - 2 August 2014
Location: Quebec City QC, Canada
Deadline: 11 April 2014

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. The aim of this workshop series is to address key questions that advance our understanding of narrative at multiple levels: from the psychological and cognitive impact of narratives to our ability to model narrative responses computationally.

This inter-disciplinary workshop will be an appropriate venue for papers addressing fundamental topics and questions regarding narrative. Papers should be relevant to issues fundamental to the computational modeling and scientific understanding of narrative; we especially welcome papers relevant to the neuroscientific and cognitive aspects of narrative. Regardless of its focus, reported work should provide some sort of insight of use to computational modeling of narratives. We accept both finished research and more tentative exploratory work. Submission deadline is April 11, 2014.
