Socially Extended Knowledge is the second of two international conferences on the topic of Extended Knowledge. The aim of the first Extended Knowledge Conference was to bring together leading scholars from around the world in order to critically examine the ramifications of the extended cognition programme (and related views) to contemporary epistemology, and to the theory of knowledge in particular. In this second conference on the topic of 'Socially Extended Knowledge', leading epistemologists, cyberneticists, philosophers of mind, psychologists and Web scientists will move further to explore the impact of the distributed cognition programme on analytic epistemology.
