In September 2013 we ran a TRUCE workshop at the European Conference on Artificial Life, in Taormina, Sicily. We brought along seven authors, who spent the day working with their partner scientists to develop the story they were working on. At the end of the day, each pairing was invited to share their thoughts and experiences with the audience. These videos give a fascinating insight into the scientific background of the stories, the creative interplay between scientist and author, and even some of the disagreements that arose!
