[Commlist] CFP: misinformation @ Interact2019

Fri Apr 26 17:08:17 GMT 2019


Somehow, all of us have been affected by the uncontrolled spread of the so-called Fake News online. Join us in the fight against misinformation and bring your ideas on how we can support societies more resilient to this problem.

We invite participants and position papers for the *Workshop - Challenging Misinformation: Exploring Limits and Approaches*@ <> in Paphos, Cyprus on the 3rd of September.

Grounded on principles of co-creation, this one-day workshop will offer an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners aiming at challenging the limits of existing approaches to tackle misinformation and fostering the design of misinformation resilient societies.

Interaction designers, journalists, educators, policymakers or other related stakeholders are encouraged to participate and submit a position paper describing their approach towards fighting misinformation, acknowledged limits of the approach, and how they envision a future in which the societies are resilient to mis/disinformation.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  * Socio-technical empirical studies
  * Motivational and behavioural studies
  * Human values
  * Persuasive technology
  * Games and gamification
  * Information and media literacy
  * Fact-checking
  * Social media policies and regulation
  * Automated tools for misinformation detection and notifications
  * Legal and ethical aspects

The paper should be from 2 to 4 pages in the Springer LNCS format. /Accepted papers will be published in the adjunct conference proceedings and available at the workshop website. / Submissions will be reviewed by the workshop organisers according to their relevance to the problem and motivations to advance towards a more systemic socio-technical solution.

Workshop outcomes will be published as a poster presentation at the main conference and as a video. The possibility of a special issue journal will be discussed with the participants. Participants will be invited to actively engage in a series of co-creation activities for:

  * Discussing challenges, obstacles or problems related to misinformation
  * Challenging existing approaches to misinformation and their limitations
  * Mapping stakeholders, questioning the relationships between them
  * Co-creating future scenarios where digital platforms support
    misinformation resilience
  * Identifying criteria for assessing the potential of solutions to
    make an impact
