The Multidisciplinary International Symposium on Disinformation in Open Online Media (MISDOOM) is returning for its 5th edition on 21 and 22 November 2023. This time, the conference will be hosted by the National Research Center for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) at Amsterdam Science Park (Netherlands). MISDOOM values multidisciplinary research and is designed to be inclusive of different academic disciplines and practices.
The symposium provides a platform for researchers, industry professionals, and practitioners from various disciplines such as communication science, computer science, computational social science, political science, psychology, journalism, and media studies to come together and share their knowledge and insights on online disinformation.
- Participants can discuss and contribute to the following list of topics:
- Cross-platform campaigns and their impact (e.g., diffusion of disinformation and manipulation, observations of campaigns and strategies, communication strategies, hate speech)
- Approaches to studying misinformation (e.g., qualitative approaches, case studies, quantitative approaches, experiments)
- User involvement with misinformation on various platforms (e.g., engagement, viewership)
- Counter-measures for mis- and disinformation and manipulation (e.g., censorship policies, behavioral changes, education, training, professional codices, legal actions)
- Factors contributing to misinformation beliefs or hampering corrections of false beliefs (e.g., political polarization, motivated reasoning, confirmation bias)
- Trending topics in mis- and disinformation research
- Automated fact-checking and misinformation detection
- Models for misinformation diffusion
- Human computation approaches for misinformation detection (crowdsourcing, human-machine interaction)
- Information quality (information quality dimensions, metrics, ethics of information quality)
- Generative AI tools and disinformation (e.g., ChatGPT, Midjourney, DALL-E) .
