Workshop to be held in conjunction with ICIDS 2017, Madeira

This call for participation is seeking submitted papers and attendance at the Authoring for Interactive Storytelling workshop held at ICIDS 2017 in Madeira. This workshop seeks to provide a venue for researchers in the area of interactive digital narrative authoring and narrative systems to share early work, new ideas, and identify challenges facing the field, with a view to fostering collaboration and the formation of a coherent research community in this space.

This workshop will provide structured paper presentations and unstructured ``unconference'' sessions, the content of which will be dictated by the workshop attendees during the workshop session itself.
