A highlight of EEP’s 2014 operations will be the NSFC-IIASA conference Evolution of Cooperation, to be held from 8-11 April at the Sino-German Center for Research Promotion in Beijing, China.
This event, which was jointly developed and organized by IIASA and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) as IIASA’s Chinese National Member Organization, will bring together leading cooperation researchers from China, IIASA, and around the world to discuss empirical insights and theoretical methods for understanding the evolution of cooperation.
The goal of the conference is to showcase evolutionary studies addressing the social dilemmas surrounding human cooperation in general, and the management of common goods in particular. The meeting will provide a platform for comparing and orchestrating research approaches, with a special emphasis on strengthening the ties between IIASA’s activities and the rapidly growing community of Chinese game theorists.
EEP has substantially contributed to designing and coordinating the Southern African Young Scientists Summer Program (SA-YSSP), co-organized jointly with IIASA’s South African National Member Organization at the University of the Free State in Bloemfontein, South Africa. EEP co-supervised four of the 19 2012-13 SA-YSSP participants and four of the 36 2013-14 SA-YSSP participants and will help them turn their research achievements into publishable manuscripts throughout 2014. The same contribution will be made to the six EEP participants of IIASA’s YSSP 2013.
EEP is involved in four of the integrative research initiatives IIASA will start in 2014.
