The 4th Zip-Scene Conference on Immersive Storytelling

The 4th Zip-Scene Conference on Immersive Storytelling  (10-12 November, 2022) will be organized in Budapest, at the Innovation Center of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in partnership with ARDIN & INDCOR COST Action. This year – beside the general topic of interactive digital narratives – we are especially interested in interactive storytelling projects or analyses that deal with some aspects: 1. of the concept of designing the critical METAVERSE:  we aim to have a special emphasis on how the concept of metaverse is tackling our understanding of immersive storytelling production and how IDN’s and related applications can guide us to a more peaceful future and/or also guide us for taking better care of each other. 2. We also welcome presentations that discuss research results related to physical and mental healthcare and completed projects that use Interactive Digital Narratives (IDN) for representing complex topics or as actual tools used in healthcare. The detailed call can be found here:
