An Interdisciplinary Workshop
Convenors: Federica Amici (MPI-EVA, Leipzig) and Lucas Bietti (Telecom ParisTech)
January 30 - 31, 2014
Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology
Deutscher Platz 6
The aim of this workshop is to provide a better integration of our understanding of the automatic processes driving coordination mechanisms with the particular social contexts in which those processes unfold. Furthermore, we will play particular attention to the benefits that the coordination of multiple behavioral channels in social and human-robot interactions may give by fostering cooperative behavior, improving problem-solving and decision-making as well as shaping collaborative processes in social learning, in non-human primates, humans and socially intelligent robots.
