International Conference on Entertainment Computing (ICEC 2015) and SBGames 2015

My paper "Storytelling Variants: The Case of Little Red Riding Hood" has been accepted as a full paper at ICEC 2015 (International Conference on Entertainment Computing).

In the paper, taking Little Red Riding Hood as example, we review a small number of variants of this universally cherished story, in an attempt to understand how variants emerge. The study is founded on the classification of types and motifs contained in the Index of Antti Aarne and Stith Thompson, and examines the hypothesis that variants are often the consequence of type interactions, which we propose to characterize in terms of semiotic relations associated with the so-called four master tropes.

ICEC 2015 will be held in Trondheim, Norway in 30th September – 02th October, 2015.

I also have three papers accepted at the XIV Brazilian Symposium on Computer Games and Digital Entertainment (SBGames 2015): Types, Motifs and the Emergence of Variants (full paper), Applying Digital Storytelling to Information System Domains (short paper), and Geração Procedural de Mapas para Jogos 2D (short paper).

The fourteenth edition of SBGames will be held in Teresina, Brazil in 11th November – 13th November, 2015.
