Collective Agency and Cooperation
in Natural and Artificial Systems
International Conference at the University of Stuttgart, July 22-24, 2013
The focus of this conference is the explanation of collective agency, cognition and
cooperation in natural and artificial systems and the challenges arising from the
construction of machines (like software agents and robots) that act together with
other machines and human beings. This topic is approached from a multidisciplinary
perspective involving philosophy, artificial intelligence, computer science, cognitive-
and neuroscience, robotics, social science and engineering cybernetics. There are
going to be talks, discussion panels and a poster-session.

Research questions:
• Which forms of collective or group agency are there, and how can they be
explained, brought about, and controlled?
• How can collective agency, joint intentions and cooperation be modeled and
simulated?
• What are the bases of social cognition in natural and artificial systems?
• Can we attribute collective agency or joint intention to a system or team
involving both, human and artificial agents?
• Which aspects have to be considered for a natural and intuitive interaction and
cooperation of humans and robots? Which role do emotions play?
• Can we hold groups morally responsible, specifically when they are involving
artificial agents?
