Current areas of excellence and research foci within Computational Media include interactive storytelling, game design, procedural content generation/generative methods, game studies, games user research, computational cinematography, computer graphics for games and media, artificial intelligence for games and media, software studies, educational games, natural language and dialogue, and serious games.
