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 structured 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.
The meeting will take place at the Oceanographic Institute (Maison des Océans et de la Biodiversité) in Paris, France on May 30-31, 2016. This meeting is part of the 2016 program of Pépinière interdisciplinaire CNRS “Eco-Evo-Devo” hosted at Paris-Sciences-Lettres Research University. The meeting is also supported by a grant from the Partner University Fund (France-America Cultural Exchange) to École Normale Supérieure and the University of Arizona.
