Meeting Description:

Multimodal Social Signals of Conflict and Negotiation in Humans, Animals, and Machines
International Workshop on Conflict and Communication

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.

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.

Call for Papers:

Since such a complex topic as conflict needs to be confronted by a high level of multidisciplinarity, we encourage contributions from various fields, including: Psychology, Ethology, Political Sciences, Neuroscience, Linguistics, Argumentation, Social Simulation, Robotics, Social Signal Processing, Swarm Intelligence, etc.

Authors are invited to submit an abstract of 400-600 words for presentation at the Workshop. After the Workshop a selection of the papers presented will be published in a book of a Springer series. Abstracts and papers should be sent to the following addresses:

poggiuniroma3.it; fderricouniroma3.it; laura.vinczegmail.com

Deadline for abstract submission: 24 June 2013
