What can research on human and non-human animals learn from each other?
Insights from the study of collective behavior
Tuesday, July 27, 15:00-18:00 UTC+2
The idea for this satellite symposium is to build bridges between the computational social sciences community and the collective behavior community and to draw connections between fundamental mechanisms of behavior in human and non-human animals. The satellite symposium is hosted by the Centre for the Advanced Study of Collective Behaviour at the University of Konstanz, Germany.
We succeeded in bringing together a remarkable group of outstanding early career researchers who will present their exciting research along those lines, and they will discuss the connections with each other and the audience in a panel discussion at the end of the session.
Below is an overview of the program, and recordings are available.
