8 February 2009, Common Sense and Intelligent User Interfaces 2009: Story Understanding and Generation for Context-Aware Interface Design, Sanibel Island, Florida

Date: 8 February 2009
Location: Sanibel Island, Florida
Deadline: 20 November 2008

Capturing common sense knowledge often involves uncovering the implicit, unstated assumptions behind communication, often best expressed through stories. Work in story representations dates back to Schank-style scripts and other efforts in the 80s, but recent developments have unleashed new potential in this area. The maturity of common sense knowledge bases such as Cyc, Open Mind and ThoughtTreasure; statistical and corpora-based natural language understanding techniques; the explosion of participatory knowledge collection over the Web; progress in cognitive science; the popularity of Web-based storytelling media such as blogs; and new common sense reasoning techniques are all enablers of the new generation of work on common sense stories.

We are accepting both papers and demos to our workshop. Submission deadline is November 20th. For more information, see http://csc.media.mit.edu/iuiStories/.
