Cfp: "Narrative and Hypertext 2011," Workshop on Narrative Systems, School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton, June 6, 2011.

This workshop aims to provide an interdisciplinary forum to bring together individuals from the humanities and science communities to share research and discuss state-of-the-art research on narrative from both a technical and aesthetic perspective. Narratives are complex creations prevalent in our entertainment, communication, and understanding of the world and its events. By building better models of narrative along with methods for generation, adaption, and presentation we enable narrative systems to become more effective but also improve our understanding of narrative structures. This workshop offers a focus for this interdisciplinary community to share research, offer solutions and contributions to the challenges faced in the study of narrative and the development of narrative systems, and offers a platform of discussion for potential collaboration for members of the hypertext community working with narrative.

Topics include:

- Models of Narrative
- Systems for the Presentation of Narratives
- Adaptive and Personalised Narratives
- Narrative Analysis
- Narrative Generation
- Narrative as a method of Knowledge Capture
- Social Media as Narrative
- Narrative as a lens on identity
- Argumentation and Rhetoric
