You are invited to come to Edinburgh in November and participate in a stimulating programme of papers from leading researchers, with three contrasting invited speakers:

  • Carl Heath (GR Experiental Learning, Sweden): long-term work in Live Role-Play for education, interactive narrative with non-actors

There will also be a special session for demos and posters

The conference (Nov-1st-3rd) is preceded by a programme of workshops and tutorials:

  • Users and Evaluation of Interactive Storytelling
