The International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling (ICIDS) is the premier conference for researchers and practitioners concerned with studying digital interactive forms of narrative from a variety of perspectives, including the theoretical, technological, and applied design practices. The annual conference is an interdisciplinary gathering that combines technology-focused approaches with humanities-inspired theoretical inquiry, empirical research and artistic expression.
ICIDS 2019 was held at the Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort, Little Cottonwood Canyon near Salt Lake City, UT, USA from November 19 to 22, 2019.
ICIDS 2019 included invited speakers, research and practitioner presentations, art exhibits, workshops, tutorials, and a doctoral consortium. This year’s conference featured a special theme of “Design Foundations, Innovations, and Practices.” In addition to topics covered by previous iterations of ICIDS, the conference program featured topic areas that focus on principles of design, advancements in the design lifecycle, and design process case studies for interactive storytelling.
