Collective Intentionality IX is an interdisciplinary conference encompassing philosophy, psychology, cognitive science, computer science, linguistics, anthropology, sociology, political science, law, and economics. We welcome submissions from any disciplines concerned with the study of collective intentionality. The program from the 2012 CI conference at Manchester is available here and from the 2010 conference at Basel here. Relevant topics include (but are not limited to): collective intention and action, collective or team reasoning, collective or distributed cognition, collective intelligence, collective belief, desire, commitment, responsibility, rationality, emotion, consciousness, attention, memory, decision-making, knowledge, norms and trust, as well as cooperation, competition, and related issues, and how these underpin social practices, organizations, institutions (including language, law, economics, politics) and social ontology. A list of invited speakers is available here (this will be updated until it is complete).
