The aim of this meeting is to bring together empirical scientists and philosophers to explore novel experimental methods of studying social cognition. In particular, the workshop hopes to gather researchers dedicated to developing empirical methods that go beyond the traditional Theory of Mind paradigms based on Theory Theory and/or Simulation Theory. Instead of these paradigms, which have largely focused on reflective and observational processes in social cognition, we want to focus on those paradigms that involve social interactions and allow for the study of the cognitive and affective processes underlying the interaction dynamics.

Please note: The capacity of the workshop is limited to 35 participants. Priority will therefore be given to those who are actively involved in relevant research and who will present a poster. 

This meeting is organised by Vivian Bohl, Marion Godman, Mog Stapleton, Christoph Teufel, Wouter van den Bos, and Marijn van Wingerden. It is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation as part of a network grant from the European Platform for Life Sciences, Mind Sciences, and the Humanities.
