JAM 8 (2019)

2019 July 10-13, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Genova, Italy

We invite you to attend the 8th bi-annual Joint Action Meeting (JAM) which brings together cognitive scientists and researchers from related disciplines studying individuals’ ability to act together.

Human life is full of joint actions, ranging from a handshake to the performance of a symphony. We are highly skilled at coordinating our actions with those of others to reach common goals, and rely on this ability throughout our daily lives. What are the cognitive and neural processes underlying this ability? How does joint action develop? How do language and gesture support and emerge from joint action? What are the basic principles needed to build robotic systems that can interact with humans? What does differentiate joint action from individual action, both conceptually and in terms of experience? The scientific program will comprise oral presentations and posters addressing these and related questions. Contributions will present the latest research and thinking on a range of different topics, including language as a form of joint action, the interplay of perception and action in joint action, and the phylogenetic, ontogenetic, and cultural foundations of joint action.

This conference is supported by Central European University, Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia and Università degli Studi di Genova
