Collective behavior and collective intelligence have come more and more into the focus of both, research and practical, everyday use. Users crowd to design new products or help solving engineering problems, and companies have to find an answer how to integrate the knowledge into their processes. Changing environmental factors, like new information technology and changed customer behavior, allow for many opportunities for the emergence of collective intelligence. Collective behavior and the achieved results as well as the closely connected individual learning processes offer a high potential for value creation in different areas, like business, research or society. However, the potential of collective behavior, collective intelligence and learning in the context of value creation is widely unexplored. To harness this potential, it is important to understand the basic concepts, features and mechanism of collective intelligence based on interdisciplinary research.
To provide a platform to share ideas and information between scientists and also between scientists and practitioners, a symposium on collective intelligence will take place from June 9 to June 10, 2011 at the Seoul National University in Korea. Since the topic is highly interdisciplinary the symposium focuses on different research areas, like economics, informatics, media science, psychology, or sociology.
