Cognitive capacities such as learning, reasoning, and decision-making are often studied in tasks where a single participant acts in isolation. Yet humans don't learn, reason, and make decisions in a vacuum. Human cognition is distinctively social: Much of what we do influences—and is influenced by—other people. The goal of this workshop is to bring together diverse perspectives on the interplay between human cognition and the dynamic, social environments we inhabit.
The workshop took place on July 29th, 2020 as part of CogSci 2020. Videos of each talk are hosted on this website for asynchronous viewing and accessible to everyone. The live aspect of the workshop (Q&A and panel discussion) was hosted by CogSci 2020, with a recording of the panel discussion available below. We encourage everyone to contact the organizers or speakers to follow up with any of the presented content.
