ICIDS 2018, Ireland, December 5-8, 2018

ICIDS is the premier conference for researchers and practitioners concerned with studying digital interactive forms of narrative from a variety of perspectives, including the theoretical, technological, and applied design practices. The annual conference is an interdisciplinary gathering that combines technology-focused approaches with humanities-inspired theoretical inquiry, empirical research and artistic expression.

With this 11th edition of the conference, ICIDS is now entering its second decade. The field of interactive narrative has matured considerably over this period, and the organizers take this year’s milestone as an opportunity to introduce new overarching topics that reflect some of the considerable developments over the past decades.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer.

The Doctoral Consortium is an opportunity for PhD students in areas related with the topics of ICIDS to present their research work, at a stage where feedback from the community might be beneficial. Students will discuss the work with experts in the area and with peers in a friendly atmosphere where discussion and contributions will be encouraged. Students should have defined their research plan and can be in intermediate or advanced stages of their research. The work should not be completed in order to take advantage of the feedback from the Doctoral Consortium.
