Special Topic: Situated Entertainment

SPECIAL TOPIC: "Situated Entertainment"

This year, the AIIDE conference will feature a special topic of “Situated Entertainment.” We encourage all authors to consider in their papers how the social, cultural, and physical contexts in which they work influence their research. Additionally, we encourage submissions that directly engage with social, cultural, and physical contexts for entertainment-based AI. For example, papers that analyze social and ethical issues of new or existing entertainment AI systems, describe entertainment AI research that is deliberately culturally situated, or that integrate tangible interaction and physical contexts into digital AI. Paper submissions that address spatial (e.g. AI in the home, museum, or health clinic) and/or temporal (e.g. AI for asynchronous entertainment) contexts for entertainment AI are also encouraged. The special topic will connect to keynote speakers, panels, paper sessions, and other aspects of the conference program.
