An Invitation for a Full-day Workshop @ ICIDS 2010,
October 31st, 2010, Edinburgh UKOrganisers:
Hartmut Koenitz, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA
Mads Haahr, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland
Gabriele Ferri, University of Bologna, Italy
Tonguc Ibrahim Sezen, Istanbul University, TurkeyWe cordially invite you to participate in our workshop at this year's ICIDS conference. We will discuss the issue of terminology and associated meaning originating in diverse disciplines and the consequences for the field of interactive digital storytelling. For example, researchers originally trained in a specific field often continue to use the terminology they are familiar with, sometimes unaware of the potential misunderstandings that may arise. As a consequence, both the internal discussion amongst scholars and practitioners in the field of Interactive Storytelling Design and the external one with researchers from more traditional fields within the humanities and computer sciences have become difficult and prone toterminological misunderstandings.The discussion is aimed to arrive at strategies for developing a shared, inclusive vocabulary for interactive storytelling research. A panel of experts - including Professor Janet Murray - will react to the discussion help to situate the workshop within the field.Target audience: Researchers and Practitioners in the field of Interactive Digital Storytelling interested in improving academic and practical exchange and discussions by working towards a shared vocabulary for the field of interactive digital storytelling.
