After a successful 1st edition in Hamburg, Germany, the international MISDOOM symposium on misinformation in online media returns for a 2nd edition, this time hosted by Leiden University, the Netherlands. Topics include fake news, social bots, disinformation, filter bubbles, virality, deep fakes and related topics on misinformation in online media.
The symposium brings together researchers in communication science, computer science, computational social science, political communication, journalism and media studies, as well as practitioners in journalism and online media. The symposium has a strong multidisciplinary character, and aims to cater to the habits of different disciplines. Therefore, there are two submission tracks: one for extended abstracts which will be judged based on suitability for presentation at the symposium, and another track for full papers with Springer LNCS proceedings, reviewed based on scientific quality and suitability for presentation.
