Deliberation, Belief Aggregation, and Epistemic Democracy II

June 11 - 13, 2019

Neuville-sur-Oise, France


This conference will bring together researchers in philosophy, theoretical economics, formal political science, computer science, mathematics, statistical physics, psychology, sociology and engineering who have been independently studying similar questions: namely, opinion formation dynamics, peer interactions and deliberation in social groups, and the implications of these phenomena for the epistemic competency of collective decisions.

Each speaker will deliver a one hour presentation, followed by fifteen minutes of questions and discussion with audience members. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the conference, we will leave plenty of time for discussion and interaction. We hope this will lead to new interdisciplinary collaborations.

(This conference is the sequel to Deliberation, Belief Aggregation, and Epistemic Democracy, which took place from May 30 to June 1, 2018, Paris.)

(Registration is free - this is just to help us with logistics. Presenting a lecture or poster is not required.)
