Important Dates:

  • 15 July 2013. On-line registration closes.

  • 31 July - 3 August 2013. CogSci 2013 in Berlin.

  • 4-6 August 2013. Workshop in Hamburg.

Workshop Aims

Narratives are ubiquitous in human experience. We use them to communicate, convince, explain, and entertain. As far as we know, every society in the world has narratives, which suggests they are rooted in our psychology and serve an important cognitive function. It is becoming increasingly clear that, to truly understand and explain human intelligence, beliefs, and behaviors, we will have to understand why and to what extent narrative is universal and explain (or explain away) the function it serves. The aim of this workshop series is to address key questions that advance our understanding of narrative and our ability to model it computationally.

Special Focus: Cognitive Science

This workshop will be an appropriate venue for papers addressing fundamental topics and questions regarding narrative. The workshop will be held as a satellite event of the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society (to be held in Berlin 31st July - 3rd August), and will have a special focus on the cognitive science of narrative. Although the workshop hosts papers that treat issues fundamental to the computational modeling and scientific understanding of narrative, this year we have a focus on narrative's cognitive, linguistic, or philosophical aspects. Both finished research and more tentative exploratory work will be presented.


Papers will be published in an electronic proceedings volume in the series OASIcs (Open Access Series in Informatics, Schloss Dagstuhl).


The prize for the best student paper will be awarded to Graham Sack for his paper "Character Networks for Narrative Generation: Structural Balance Theory and the Emergence of Proto-Narratives". The prize for the best student paper on a cognitive science topic will be awarded to Angela Nyhout for her paper "Constructing spatial representations from narratives and non-narrative descriptions: Evidence from 7-year-olds".
