[Comp-neuro] Computational Models of Narrative: the Neuroscience of Narrative (July 31 - Aug 2)

On behalf of the organizing committee, I want to put on your radar an
upcoming conference on "*Computational Models of Narrative: the
Neuroscience of Narrative*", which will take place *July 31 - Aug 2, 2014* in
*Quebec City, Canada*. Paper submissions are due April 4, 2014.

The goal of this 5th annual workshop is to foster approaches to the science
of narrative and story that are compatible with computational and cognitive
perspectives. Narratives are powerful social tools that are used across all
human cultures for a range of purposes, from moral education and empathy
induction to recruiting and galvanizing support for an ideological cause.
Understanding how narratives are created, transmitted and interpreted is
therefore of interest to a broad swath of academic fields, which provides
the opportunity for a rich inter-disciplinary meeting. Indeed, the workshop
historically attracts a broad interdisciplinary group, including computer
scientists, psychologists, cognitive scientists, narratologists,
philosophers, and many others. We hope that you will consider joining
the discussion!

Three types of papers will be accepted: (1) Long Papers (8 pages, excluding
references): appropriate for concrete research results, including pilot
studies, or studies in progress. (2) Short Papers (4 pages, excluding
references): appropriate for a small, focused contribution, a negative
result, or an interesting application nugget. (3) Position Papers (2 pages,
excluding references): appropriate for discussion of an interesting new
idea, identification of important neglected areas or topics, or an opinion
piece.

Hope to see you there!
