papers for the 5th International Conference on Collective Intentionality.
Part of the conference will be devoted to the special theme of collective
responsibility, but papers on any aspect of the theory of collective
intentionality are most welcome to the conference.

a philosophical affair, also sociologists, psychologists, cognitive
scientists and computer scientists are strongly encouraged to submit papers
to the conference. Please see the conference website for more information
both on the special theme and on the different areas of research the

committee formed to support the collective intentionality conferences.
