Event description
The 13th International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling

About this Event

The International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling (ICIDS) is the premier conference for researchers and practitioners in game narrative and interactive storytelling, including the theoretical, technological, and applied design practices. The annual conference is an interdisciplinary gathering that combines computational narratology, narrative systems, storytelling technology, and humanities-inspired theoretical inquiry, empirical research and artistic expression.

ICIDS 2020 will be hosted by the Department of Creative Technology of Bournemouth University (Bournemouth, UK) online as a virtual conference.

ICIDS 2020 will include invited speakers, research and practitioner presentations, art exhibits, workshops, tutorials, and a doctoral consortium. This year’s conference will be built around the central theme of “Interactive Digital Narrative Scholarship” - this builds upon a recurrent issue in recent years of the conference which has sought to define the methodologies, scholarly, and scientific basis of Interactive Digital Narrative as an academic discipline. We hope to build upon this discussion as we continue to define the discipline of interactive digital narrative scholarship, anchor the community around it, and rigorously refine the terminology, theory, and methodologies within our field.

This event will be held online and delegates will be sent full details on how to join the conference over Zoom, Discord, and other platforms the week before the conference
