Collective intelligence : looking beyond discourses 28 & 29 april 2020

International Congress

Call for submissions

The keynote of this international conference is Collective Intelligence (CI). Collective Intelligence has been studied in the fields of psychology, sociology, cognitive sciences, economics and management sciences, information technology and communication since the 1950s (Zabet, 2007). It is a central multidisciplinary object of study in the domains of business, health, justice and law and education.

Defined by Levy (1994) as “ a form of universally distributed intelligence, constantly enhanced, coordinated in real time, and resulting in the effective mobilization of skills”,Collective Intelligence is at the heart of a modern scientific debate seeking to identify its processes, its issues and limitations concerning essential societal outcomes such as social inclusion, education, the sharing of cultural resources, environmental and ecological transitions, justice and democracy, to name but a few.

This congress aims to gather an international and multidisciplinary team of researchers and practitioners to analyse these themes in order to identify the most recent developments in Collective Intelligence. They will be focusing on the tools, methods and the variety its scope of application.

Thus, the plenary conferences will be a presentation of the theoretical groundings underlying the study of Collective Intelligence, whereas workshops presentations will specifically look at the reality of the applied domains specifically affected by its most recent developments. A focus will be the most recent innovations by the “ARTEM Alliance”.

Submissions will relate to the following workshops:

-Education: innovation in pedagogy, creativity in small groups
-Justice and law: jury deliberation and decision-making processes -Cognitive development: problem solving
-E-Health care: Telemedicine, tele psychotherapy and cyberpsychology -Collective Intelligence in the workplace: co-working and co-creativity -Mental Health: Healthcare plan, diagnostic interaction, systemic therapy -Environment and ecological transition
