10th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INTERACTIVE DIGITAL STORYTELLING (ICIDS)
November 14-17, 2017

This year, the International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling (ICIDS 2017) will take place in Funchal, Madeira Islands, Portugal and be hosted by the ?Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute <www.m-iti.org/>.

ICIDS has its origin in a series of related international conferences that ran between 2001 and 2007. Since 2008, ICIDS became the premier annual venue that gathers researchers, developers, practitioners and theorists to present and share the latest innovations, insights and techniques in the expanding field of interactive storytelling and the technologies that support it. ICIDS welcomes contributions from a large range of fields and disciplines related to interactive storytelling.

We encourage original contributions in the forms of research papers, position papers, posters and demonstrations, presenting new scientific results, innovative theories, novel technological implementations, case studies and creative artistic projects in the field of Interactive Digital Storytelling and its possible applications in different domains. We particularly welcome research on topics in five areas, such as storytelling technologies and analyses and evaluation of systems. (More information here) <icids2017.m-iti.org/?page_id=232#papers>.
