In my boundless free time I am organising the following conference. If you fancy a trip to Edinburgh in August, do come along! :-)
Please join us at the 5th International Conference on Narrative and Interactive Learning Environments 2008 from 5th-8th August in Edinburgh, Scotland.
This is a small friendly conference which welcomes academics, educators and storytellers alike.

These applications have drawn on theories that are both relevant to the design and generation of learning environments and to the ways in which learners construct their own understanding of their experience. The NILE 2008 conference will further develop this emerging field. For a list of papers which will be presented, see

Registration deadline: 1st July 2008. Book early to avoid disappointment: accommodation is hard to find in Edinburgh at this time of year, due to the Edinburgh Festival.
