CALL FOR PARTICIPATION AND PROGRAMME ANNOUNCEMENT

    2013 Workshop on Computational Models of Narrative (CMN 2013)
                      4-6 August 2013
               Universitaet Hamburg, Germany
            http://narrative.csail.mit.edu/ws13/

(a satellite workshop of CogSci 2013: The 35th meeting of the Cognitive
Science Society Berlin, Germany, 31 July - 3 August 2013)

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS:

    Richard Gerrig, Stony Brook University, U.S.A.
    Inderjeet Mani, Chiang Mai, Thailand

Important Dates:
                 15 July 2013. On-line registration closes.
      31 July - 3 August 2013. CogSci 2013 in Berlin.
              4-6 August 2013. Workshop in Hamburg.

Workshop Aims

Narratives are ubiquitous in human experience. We use them to
communicate, convince, explain, and entertain. As far as we know, every
society in the world has narratives, which suggests they are rooted in
our psychology and serve an important cognitive function. It is becoming
increasingly clear that, to truly understand and explain human
intelligence, beliefs, and behaviors, we will have to understand why and
to what extent narrative is universal and explain (or explain away) the
function it serves. The aim of this workshop series is to address key
questions that advance our understanding of narrative and our ability to
model it computationally.

Special Focus: Cognitive Science

This workshop will be an appropriate venue for papers addressing
fundamental topics and questions regarding narrative. The workshop will
be held as a satellite event of the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Cognitive
Science Society (to be held in Berlin 31st July - 3rd August), and will
have a special focus on the cognitive science of narrative. Although the
workshop hosts papers that treat issues fundamental to the computational
modeling and scientific understanding of narrative, this year we have a
focus on narrative's cognitive, linguistic, or philosophical aspects.
Both finished research and more tentative exploratory work will be
presented.

Proceedings

Papers will be published in an electronic proceedings volume in the
series OASIcs (Open Access Series in Informatics, Schloss Dagstuhl).

Prizes

The prize for the best student paper will be awarded to Graham Sack for
his paper "Character Networks for Narrative Generation: Structural
Balance Theory and the Emergence of Proto-Narratives". The prize for the
best student paper on a cognitive science topic will be awarded to
Angela Nyhout for her paper "Constructing spatial representations from
narratives and non-narrative descriptions: Evidence from 7-year-olds".
