Deadline: March 27, 2021

The International Workshop on Cyber Social Threats, CySoc 2021, will be held in conjunction with the 15th International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM 2021) on June 7, 2021.

This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners in computer and social sciences from both academia and industry to exchange ideas on understanding the multi-faceted social, psychological, cultural, emotional, communicative, and linguistic aspects of harmful content while leading the discussion on building novel computational methods to reliably detect, derive meaning, interpret, understand and counter them.

We welcome papers for consideration, employing quantitative and/or qualitative, analytical, theoretical approaches examining a diverse range of issues related to online harmful communications. Papers on resources/data and tools will also be welcome either for demos or for short/regular talks.

Topics for research and discussions include (but not limited to):

Online extremism
Harassment and cyberbullying
Hate speech
Misinformation and disinformation (e.g., epidemics of fake news, images and videos, during a disaster, health issues and elections).
Gender-based violence,

Ethical considerations on privacy-preserving social media analytics,
Emotional and psychological support,
