The central topic of the ROMCIR (Reducing Online Misinformation through Credible Information Retrieval) 2021 workshop, as part of the satellite events of the ECIR (European Conference on Information Retrieval) 2021 conference, concerns providing access to users to credible and/or verified information, to mitigate the information disorder phenomenon. By “information disorder” we mean all forms of communication pollution, from misinformation made out of ignorance, to intentional sharing of false content. In this context, all those approaches that can serve to the assessment of the credibility of information circulating online and in social media, in particular, find their place. This topic is very broad, as it concerns different contents (e.g., Web pages, news, reviews, medical information, online accounts, etc.), different Web and social media platforms (e.g., microblogging platforms, social networking services, social question-answering systems, etc.), and different purposes (e.g., identifying false information, accessing information based on its credibility, retrieving credible information, etc.).
The workshop solicits the sending of two types of contributions relevant to the workshop and suitable to generate discussion:
- Original, unpublished contributions (pre-prints submitted to ArXiv are eligible) that will be included in an open-access post-proceedings volume of CEUR Workshop Proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org/), indexed by both Scopus and DBLP.
- Already published or preliminary work that will not be included in the post-proceedings volume.
All submissions will be undergo double-blind peer review by the programme committee.

10 pages long (regular papers)
