International Workshop on Conflict and Communication - Multimodal Social Signals of conflict and negotiation in humans, animals, and machines

Workshop Details
Deadline EXTENDED to 24th of June. This workshop focuses on interpersonal and social conflict, and on the communication that may arise from it, but also give rise to it, or finally determine conflict escalation or resolution. Since such a complex topic as conflict needs to be confronted by a high level of multidisciplinarity, we encourage contributions from various fields.
29 October 2013 - 31 October 2013   Rome, Italy
Call for Papers

 

When in an environment resources are limited, and two or more humans or other animals need the same resource, its attainment by one is incompatible with the attainment by the other: thus conflict arises.

Conflict may simply hold between two or more beliefs (cognitive conflict), or between goals of the same person or animal (intraindividual conflict), or finally between the goals of two or more individuals or groups (interpersonal and social conflict). In all cases conflict may cause internal turmoil or social aggression, and yet sometimes may also be a carrier of positive novelty and change.

We encourage contributions from various fields, among which:

Psychology, Ethology, Political Sciences, Neuroscience, Linguistics, Argumentation, Social Simulation, Robotics, Social Signal processing, Swarm intelligence….

 

Please see http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/~vincia/conflict/index.html for the core topics in the workshop and their leading questions.

 

Prospective authors are invited to submit an abstract (400-600 words) by June 24th, 2013, see http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/~vincia/conflict/call.html

 

 

Deadline:  24 June 2013
