This presentation is about my master degree thesis that is focused on the realization of a new release of an existing tool for the generation of multichannel multimedia interactive storytelling artifacts. the main goal of this new release is to build automatically different versions of the same artfact upon several delivery channels, adapting it considering delivery format costraints and usage context characteristics.
