Interdisciplinary Insights into Group and Team Dynamics

Workshop on Interdisciplinary Insights into Group and Team Dynamics: July 10-13 2016
4TU Delft
4TU Eindhoven
4TU Twente
4TU Wageningen

The workshop was hosted by the Lorentz Center at the Snellius venue which has an approximate limit of 25 places. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the workshop received 36 applications and due to the space limitations, we had to be quite strict with reducing the numbers of attendees. From this list, we had a total of 27 attendees for which 23 attended the full workshop programme. The list was carefully selected to have an even balance between researchers in computer science and researchers in group science. The aim of the workshop was to work towards a white paper where the interdisciplinary struggles of both computer scientists and group researchers who analyse human behaviour in group settings could be investigated and clarified for the community.


Overall, the workshop was a very intense few days. However, the activities that we organised successfully created a group feeling between previously unacquainted researchers from very different research domains. There is a strong feeling that this interdisciplinary meeting should not stop but continue for more years. Given the popularity already in the applications for the workshop, we are confident that this first initiative has ignited a strong need for more interdisciplinary collaborations between group researchers and computer scientists.

This workshop was co-organised by:

  • Hayley Hung, Delft University of Technology, NL
  • Nale Lehmann-Willenbrock, VU University Amsterdam, NL
  • Joann Keyton, North Carolina State University, USA
