Event description
The 3rd Multidisciplinary International Symposium on Disinformation in Open Online Media

About this event

In an ideal world, participation and openness would foster free and democratic processes as well as beneficial societal interactions. However, beyond the desired space for free expression of public opinions, such openness also provides options for large-scaled and orchestrated manipulations. Groups of humans (“trolls”) or semi- to fully-automated systems (“social bots”) can bias or manipulate online discussions and inject false perceptions into social media. How can we detect and learn from this phenomenon, and how do we combat fake news and misinformation?

Join us for the MISDOOM 2021 academic conference where we present papers on the following topics:

  • Cross-platform campaigns and their impact
  • Approaches to studying misinformation
  • User involvement with fake news on various platforms
  • Counter-measures on mis- and disinformation and manipulation
  • Social networking platforms, censorship policies and impacts
  • Trending topics in mis- and disinformation research

Further information can be found on our website
