Association for Research in Digital Interactive Narratives (ARDIN)


ARDIN supports research into Interactive Digital Narratives (IDN), in all kinds of forms, be that video and computer games, interactive documentaries and fiction, journalistic “interactives”, art projects, educational titles, transmedia, virtual reality and augmented reality titles or any emerging novel forms if IDN.

ARDIN provides a home for an interdisciplinary community and for various activities that connect, support, grow and validate said community. These activities will include membership services like newsletters, job postings, and support for local gatherings, but also conferences, publication opportunities, research fellowships, and academic/professional awards. Not all of these activities can be supported right from the start, but they describe the ambition of the association.

The home of the association is Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

ICIDS is the main academic conference of ARDIN. Additional international and local conferences are welcome to join the organization.

Participants of ICIDS2018 acquire a one year inaugural membership with their registration and the first general assembly of ARDIN takes place on Saturday, December 8, 2018 as part of ICIDS2018.

More info and additional ways how to join will be available soon.
