These are the proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Intelligent Technologies for Interactive Entertainment (INTETAIN 09). The ?rst edition of this conference, organised in Madonna di Campiglio, saw the gathering of a diverse audience with broad and varied interests. With presentations on topics ranging from underlying technology to intelligent interaction and entertainment applications, several inspiring invited lectures, a demonstration session and a hands-on design garage, that ?rst edition of INTETAIN generated a lot of - teraction between participants in a lively atmosphere. We hope that we have managed to continue this direction with the third edition, which will take place in Amsterdam,following the secondedition heldin Cancun. ' The submissions for short and long papers this year show a certain focus on topics such as emergent games, exertion interfaces and embodied interaction, but also cover important topicsofthepreviouseditions,suchas,a?ectiveuserinterfaces,storytelling,s- sors, tele-presence in entertainment, animation, edutainment, and (interactive) art.
The presentationof the accepted papers,together with the manyinteractive demonstrations of entertainment and art installations, and other participative activities to be held during the conference, should go some way towards recre- ing the open and interactive atmosphere that has been the goal of INTETAIN since its beginning. In addition to the aforementioned papers and demonstrations, we are happy to presentcontributionsfrom threeexcellent invitedspeakersfor INTETAIN 09.
