2013 World Knowledge Dialogue Meeting - World Knowledge Dialogue
The theme of the conference is "Bodies in context: interdisciplinary perspectives on social coordination" The meeting will gather a panel of scientists, stage professionals, and representatives of the civil society. Their challenge will be to decrypt and discuss the fundamental mechanisms underlying the body language considered in its global context: acoustic, material, linguistic and social. Their goal will be to have a new glance on the comprehension and implications of the body in context of interacting individuals. The moving body is deeply rooted in the communication strategies of living organisms. Carnivorous plants sense the vibrations of a visiting fly, bees indicate the way to food supply by specific dances, predators evaluate the fitness of their preys by their aptitude to escape, future mates undertake nuptial dances, stage actors transmit drama and humor. Bodies may express sadness or joy, domination of surrender, loyalty or deceit. The topic is peculiarly vast and fascinating: it encircles innate behavior, acquired behavior, culture and evolution.
