The Collective Intentionality IX conference will be held at the Indiana Memorial Union at Indiana University, Bloomington, 10-13 September 2014. The conference will feature four plenary speakers (see below) and four symposia on Distributed Cognition, the Evolution of Cooperation, Michael Bratman's book Shared Agency: A Planning Theory of Acting Together, and Collective Intentionality and Political Obligation.

Collective intentionality is the study of intentionality in the social context. It subsumes the study of collective action, responsibility, reasoning, thought, intention, emotion, decision-making, knowledge, trust, cooperation, competition, and related issues, and also how these underpin social practices, organizations, institutions and social ontology. It is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary area of research that draws on philosophy, psychology, logic, linguistics, cognitive science, sociology, computer science, economics, political science, legal theory, and cultural and evolutionary anthropology. Collective Intentionality IX will be the ninth biennial international conference on collective intentionality. Past conferences have been held at Manchester (2012), Basel (2010), Berkeley (2008), Helsinki (2006), Sienna (2004), Rotterdam (2002), Leipzig (2000), and Munich (1999). These have become large-scale interdisciplinary conferences with a strong concentration in philosophy.
