Multidisciplinary International Symposium on Disinformation in Open Online Media (MISDOOM)

February 27, 2019 - March 1, 2019

“MISDOOM is a multidisciplinary international symposium that brings together researchers and practitioners from communication science, computer science, and economy, as well as journalists and online media professionals to discuss current topics, technical advances and societal challenges in the area of online media. Participants can discuss and contribute to the following (non-exclusive list of) topics:

  • Manipulation of societies, politics, economy, and journalism by disinformation strategies (e.g., types of disinformation and manipulation, case studies, observations of campaigns and strategies, communication strategies, economic implications and threats)
  • Technical and organizational means for manipulation (e.g., technical state of the art and advances in artificial intelligence and content generation, technical infrastructure and access to social networks)
  • Human, technical and hybrid detection mechanisms for orchestrated manipulation or individual actors (e.g., indicator-based detection, machine learning, anomaly detection, monitoring systems and visualization, human task forces)
  • Counter-measures on disinformation and manipulation (e.g., transparency approaches, technical limitations, organizational processes, behavioral changes, education, professional codices, legal actions)
  • Future trends in online-media usage and societal influencing (e.g., development of platforms, disruption of traditional journalistic work, potential attack vectors in economy, journalism, politics, research challenges and open fields)

We invite researchers and practitioners to send original extended research abstracts, case studies, or position papers (max. 8 pages) before the Extended Abstract submission deadline. International recognized scholars evaluate all abstracts for suitability according to international research standards. All accepted abstracts are eligible for oral or poster presentation at the conference. In a post-proceeding process, selected work will be invited to become part of a follow-up book publication. Therefore, authors have to extend their work to a full research paper, which is then subject to a standard peer review process.”
