  • Representing and reasoning about plans and the planning process, particularly in the context of agents communicating about joint activity.
  • Software tools for the design, creation and control of liquid narrative: computer-mediated collaboration structured and dynamically controlled as an unfolding storyline. Also the creation of artificial characters capable of believable, dramatic interaction in these environments.
  • Communication in computer-mediated environments like MUDs and MOOs.
