MISDOOM 2020 - Call for Papers
2nd Multidisciplinary International Symposium
on Disinformation in Open Online Media
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__2020.misdoom.org&d=DwIFaQ&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=yQQsvTNAnbvDXGM4nDrXAje4pr0qHX2qIOcCQtJ5k3w&m=kHM8LzSknVnlU78_ByQ2UJ7yXrXOw_kwtlI46yaCvoY&s=D6Jqy1Exs69tXlSlzlROCU8OP2Ny44opVuKw8A_To8U&e=
=============================================

Leiden University, the Netherlands, April 20-22, 2020.
Submission deadline: February 1, 2020.

Topics: fake news, social bots, disinformation, filter bubbles, echo
chambers, virality, deep fakes


About MISDOOM
==============

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.
In this way, we aim to create an attractive venue that truly brings
together the `best of both worlds’ through contributed presentations
at the symposium.

We hope to welcome you in Leiden, the Netherlands in April 2020!


Invited speakers
================

Academia: Edda Humprecht (Department of Mass Communication and Media
Research, University of Zürich)
Journalism: Coen van de Ven (De Groene Amsterdammer, Amsterdam)


Symposium topic
===============

Online media have become a politically, economically, and
organizationally critical infrastructure. Internet users all over the
world can directly interact with each other and participate in for
example political discussions. Through online media, journalists have
access to enormous amounts of information and public sentiment that
increasingly becomes part of their reporting. Politicians refine their
positions and actions based on the (seemingly) public opinion, which
they distill from online media. Others use these channels to
distribute their views. Companies allow product reviews by users to
provide crowd-based quality assurance.

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
societal streams, perceptions, and multiplicators in society. How can
we detect and learn from this phenomenon, and how do we combat fake
news and misinformation?

MISDOOM is a multidisciplinary international symposium that brings
together researchers and practitioners from communication science,
media studies, political communication, computer science, data
science, 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, economics, 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) and their
impact.
- Technical and organizational means for manipulation (e.g., technical
state of the art and advances in artificial intelligence, information
retrieval 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 mis- and 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)


Presenting at MISDOOM
=====================

In addition to invited talks and panel discussions, we particularly
invite researchers and practitioners to present their work at the
symposium.
Given that we welcome both social scientists and computer scientists,
and that the publication strategies of these fields differ, we solicit
two types of contributions that both, upon acceptance, result in the
same opportunity to present at MISDOOM:

1. Extended abstracts: up to 1 page A4, briefly describing the work
that will be presented. The abstract can be based on previously
published work, ongoing work in progress or even a new research idea
or agenda. No template is provided, but at least title, authors, their
affiliation, the text of the abstract and, especially in case of
previously published work, reference(s) should be included.
Submissions are non-archival, and not formally published. Type 1
submissions will be judged based on relevance for the MISDOOM
symposium.

2. Full papers: up to 15 pages in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) format describing original unpublished and new
research. The work should be structured like a research paper, and
cover the context of the problem studied, the research question,
approach/methodology and results in 6 to 15 pages. It should be
formatted according to the LNCS Word or LaTeX template. Type 2
submissions will be judged based on scientific quality and relevance
for the MISDOOM symposium.

A program committee of international recognized scholars evaluates all
abstracts for suitability according to international research
standards. All accepted extended abstracts and full papers are
eligible for oral presentation at the symposium.
