Collaborative vs. Competitive Reference GamesJess Mankewitz, Michael Frank, Veronica Boyce, Georgia Loukatou & Brandon Waldon
In a multi-party communicative reference game, does the collaborative vs competitive nature of the game affect the reduction in utterance length (in words) over the course of 4 blocks of 12 rounds of images. Additionally, what is the effect of communication on participant coordination in these tasks?
The Effect of the “Terrorist” Frame on the American Public’s Support for WarBenjamin Harris
Despite the wide use of the terrorist frame by governments, there has been little scholarly attention devoted to the question of whether the label works. In other words, does using the terrorist frame increase the public’s support for war? Recent research by Baele et al. 2019 and Bracic and Murdie 2020 suggests that it does, but framing experiments on terrorism have not used multiple, contested frames. This project conducts a survey experiment contrasting the effect...

Meta visual searchMatan Mazor, Max Siegel & Joshua Tenenbaum
In two exploratory experiments we asked participants to estimate how long it would take them to perform various visual search tasks. We find that participants can accurately predict their prospective search times, but consistently overestimated the effect of the number of distractors on search time. Here we pre-register our plans for an additional hypothesis-driven experiment, to replicate and extend on our original findings.

203.2 Preservation Watch at the National Archives of The Netherlands.Pepijn Lucker, Marcel Ras, Barbara Sierman & Remco van Veenendaal
In 2015 a new preservation policy of the National Archives of The Netherlands (NaNeth) was approved. Part of our policy is the implementation of the so called preservation watch. Preservation watch as a concept was first minted in the European PLANETS project (2007-2011, http://www.planets-project.eu). It is part of the PLANETS functional model which is an elaboration of the OAIS function Preservation Planning. The PLANETS functional model describes the functions and processes of a preservation planning...

Relational Registration Field ExperimentAriel White & Alexander Coppock
This document describes the design and planned analysis of a randomized field experiment aimed at registering currently unregistered citizens to vote in the 2020 presidential election in Wisconsin. A central challenge for voter registration is the absence of a list of citizens who are not currently registered to vote. Unlike get-out-the-vote campaigns, which typically start from a list of registered voters as compiled on the voter file, registration campaigns have to identify unregistered voters by...

Do infants expect those who know their names to comfort their caregivers?Ashley Thomas, Rebecca Saxe & Elizabeth Spelke
In two previous studies collected over zoom, we found that infants look more toward a puppet who was imitated by their caregiver only during an audiovisual matching task. During this audiovisual matching task, both puppets moved their mouths in synchrony while one voice spoke in 'infant-directed speech' using the infant's own name. When both puppets appeared on screen with music in the background or in silence, infants did not look more toward the imitated puppet....

Transmittance enhancement at Graphene/Al interfacesHaozhe Wang, jing kong, Sidan Fu & Jifeng Liu
In this work, we investigated the optical properties of graphene/aluminum interfaces. We acquired the transmittance spectra of graphene/aluminum stacks using a UV-vis spectrophotometer. One interesting observation is transmittance increased in samples with graphene, indicating a novel physical or chemical interaction between graphene and aluminum. Due to the counter-intuitive observation, we anticipate this work will benefit the community in fundamental understanding and reliable utilization of graphene and Al interactions.
