This year, the Eight International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling (ICIDS 8) will take place in Denmark at Aalborg University’s campus in central Copenhagen.

The conference will be hosted by the Department of Architecture, Design and Media Technology (http://media.aau.dk/) in collaboration with the Center for Applied Game Research, the Augmented Cognition Lab, and the ReCreate Center.

ICIDS has its origin in a series of related international conferences that ran between 2001 and 2007 (http://www.icids.org/ ).  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.

The field regroups a highly dynamic and interdisciplinary community, in which narrative studies, computer science, interactive and immersive technologies, the arts, and creativity converge to develop new expressive forms in a myriad of domains that include artistic projects, interactive documentaries, cinematic games, serious games, assistive technologies, edutainment, pedagogy, museum science, advertisement and entertainment, to mention a few.

The conference has a long-standing tradition of bringing together academia, industry, designers, developers and artists into an interdisciplinary dialogue through a mix of keynote lectures, long and short article presentations, posters, workshops, and very lively demo sessions. Additionally, since 2010, ICIDS has been hosting an international art exhibition open to the general public.

The refereed proceedings of ICIDS 2015 will be published as a volume in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) “Interactive Storytelling” series.
