Workshop theme and objectives:
Cheating is a perennial theme in our efforts to understand the ecology and
evolution of cooperation. Where are we now, and where do we go from here?
Talks in this symposium will address cheating in a variety of empirical
systems, incorporating a diversity of theoretical approaches. Time will be
devoted to group discussions in which all attendees will be welcome to
participate. Friendly controversy is expected, and new collaborations are
intended! Our goal is to create an “idea lab” that will break the ground
for the next few decades of research.
