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).

Deadline for submission: May 15th, 2014.

Notification: July 1st, 2014.

Format: A draft of the paper for presentation or a 1000 word abstract. Paper sessions will be thirty minutes including discussion.

Submission: Submission can be made online here through the Easychair system. Submission requires that you set up an Easychair account--if you don't have one you can create one at the page above. This is easy and should take just a moment of your time. Contact the organizers if you have any difficulty.

Refereeing: Submissions will be double-blind reviewed. Please prepare submissions for blind review and for submission in pdf format.

After review, a subset of submitted papers will be invited for oral presentation, and a second subset for presentation as posters.
