Central Research Questions:
The second Aarhus - Paris conference in social ontology and social cognition addresses the role of coordination and common ground in the constitution of the social reality, as well as their relations within the architecture of human social cognition. Coordination of behaviour depends on common ground at multiple levels: a shared understanding of who is coordinating with whom, what their goals and strategies are, what objects, people and events are relevant to the shared goal.
Common ground may include things as different as physical bodies, artefacts, spaces, linguistic contexts, mutual knowledge and the background of human-like biological propensities. On the other hand, coordination also creates and sustains common ground, e.g. by means of bodily synchronization, conversational and mental alignment, the sharing of conventional worlds and situation models.

What psychological, neural, cultural, evolutionary processes facilitate the cultivation and maintenance of common ground as a condition for coordinated interaction? How are such processes related to each other? How are we to model top-down and bottom-up interactions among these processes? What is the role played by development in easing coordination through common ground? How have dual processes of biological evolution and of cultural acquisition contributed to the mutual interplay of coordination and common ground?
