Decepticon: International Conference on Deceptive Behavior | Cambridge, UK |
Decepticon brings together researchers and practitioners in the detection and prevention of deception. Previously, deception research has been fragmented across conferences in many different disciplines, sub-disciplines and countries. To cover the great diversity of approaches to deception research, our scientific committee has members covering domains such as:
- Psychology (e.g., forensic, social, cognitive, neuro, evolutionary, developmental, marketing/consumer)
- Behavioral economy (e.g., preventing and deterring deception, deception in companies)
- Law (e.g., police interviewing, polygraph use, malingering, deception in court)
- Computing (e.g., using technology to detect deceit, machine learning)
- Security (e.g., fraud, cybercrime, border control, lying about intentions)
- Communication (e.g., interactional dynamics, verbal and nonverbal cues to deceit)
- Anthropology (e.g. cultural differences in both the acceptability of deceit and the display of cues)
- Philosophy (e.g., self-deception, what is and is not deception)
