The goal of this preconference is to bring together researchers who are interested in macro psychological processes occurring at the level of groups or crowds. Collective psychological processes are often the result of interactions between individuals whose mutual influence leads to the emergence of outcomes that cannot be captured by the analysis of individuals as separate units. Research in the growing field of collective psychology integrates insights from psychology, network science, and complexity theory, and experiments in this domain are often aided by computational simulations designed to capture the emerging properties of human interaction. We hope to use this forum to unite researchers from a variety of subdomains that fall under collective psychology, including collective intelligence, collective decision making (wisdom of the crowd), collective memory, and collective affect.
