26-28 May 2015, Sixth Workshop on Computational Models of Narrative (CMN'15), 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. The aim of this workshop series is to address 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.

This year's workshop is associated with the Third Annual Conference on Advances in Cognitive Systems (ACS), and 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.

This inter-disciplinary workshop will be an appropriate venue for papers addressing fundamental topics and questions regarding narrative. Regardless of its topic, reported work should provide some sort of insight of use to computational modeling of narratives. Discussing technological applications or motivations is not prohibited, but is not required. We accept both finished research and more tentative exploratory work. Submission deadline is February 2nd, 2015.
