26-28 May 2015, Sixth International Workshop on Computational Models of Narrative (CMN 2015), Atlanta GA, U.S.A.

Date: 26-28 May 2015
Location: Atlanta GA, U.S.A.
Deadline: 2 February 2015

Narrative provides a framing structure for understanding, communicating, influencing, and organizing human experience. Systems for its analysis and production are increasingly found embedded in devices and processes, influencing decision-making in venues as diverse as politics, economics, intelligence, and cultural production. This inter-disciplinary workshop will be an appropriate venue for papers addressing fundamental topics and questions regarding narrative, such as the technical implementation of narrative systems, the theoretical bases of these frameworks, and our general understanding of narrative at multiple levels: from the psychological and cognitive impact of narratives to our ability to model narrative responses computationally.

CMN 2015 will be co-located with the Third Annual Conference on Advances in Cognitive Systems (ACS 2015). The workshop will have a special focus on the building cognitive systems that are distinguished by a focus on high-level cognition and decision making, reliance on rich, structured representations, a systems-level perspective, use of heuristics to handle complexity, and incorporation of insights about human thinking, meaning we especially welcome papers relevant to the cognitive aspects of narrative. Invited Speaker: Janet H. Murray (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA)

The Programme Committee cordially invites all researchers to submit their papers for presentation. Long, short and position papers are solicited. Papers should be relevant to issues fundamental to the computational modeling and scientific understanding of narrative. Submission deadline: February 2, 2015.
