Focus of meeting

How do we understand individuality in social, group-living species?  How do individual behaviours integrate to produce collective dynamics?  What happens to individuals with conflicting motivations in groups?  What consequences are there for an individual who chooses the group over its own competing motivations?

We welcome presentations of both a theoretical and empirical nature, and particularly encourage submissions on a wide range of species (including humans) and at different levels (e.g. whole organism and cellular levels).

Organisers: Lisa Collins (Lincoln, UK) and David Sumpter (Uppsala, Sweden)
