Over the last 20 years or so, considerable progress has been made in understanding traditional forms of human intelligence, how it may be assessed, its role in applied domains, and whether or not it can be enhanced. However, little attention has been paid to providing a rigorous scientific account of emotional intelligence EI, the theme of the workshop. Perhaps because of this deficiency, there are a number of competing models of EI, none of which appears as full-blown as do current accounts of traditional forms of intelligence. The current workshop, in extending on previous research by the co-organizers, represented arguably the first even-handed attempt by a group of scientists to critically evaluate the state-of-the-art in theory, research, assessment, and applications. In doing so, an expected outcome of the workshop was to establish a scientific model of emotional intelligence that would inform further theory and measurement and to identify important applications. The three volumes that comprise this special report include the transcribed and edited workshop presentations, along with the visuals used by each speaker. Transcriptions of the discussion that took place after each session are also provided. In the final volume, we also include the original program around which this conference was based. The three volumes are organized, along thematic lines, as follows Volume I Opening Remarks Session 1 Emotions, Multi-disciplinary Perspectives and Session 2 Emotions, Psychological Perspectives. Volume II Session 3 Emotion Intelligence, Related Constructs and Session 4 Emotional Intelligence, Assessment. Volume III Session 5 Emotional Intelligence, Applications Closing Remarks and Appendix Initial Conference Program.
