Call for Papers: CySoc 2023 - International Workshop on Cyber Social Threats @WebConf 2023
Deadline: February 6, 2023 February 13, 2023

The Fourth International Workshop on Cyber Social Threats, CySoc 2023, will be held in conjunction with the ACM Web Conference (formerly WWW Conference) in Austin, Texas, USA on April 30, 2023. The workshop will be held in a hybrid format (both in person in Austin, Texas and online). The accepted papers will be presented in-person at the CySoc 2023 workshop and published in the companion volume of the conference proceedings. This year we are excited to announce that authors of selected papers will be invited to include an extended version of their paper in a Special Issue of EPJ Data Science!

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 from, interpret, understand, and counter them.

We welcome papers that employ quantitative and/or qualitative, analytical, and theoretical approaches to examine a diverse range of issues related to harmful online communications. Papers that discuss resources, data, or tools are also welcome as either demos or short/regular talks. This year we offer a spotlight topic on “Information Integrity During Crises” and special consideration will be given to submissions that focus on this timely and important topic.

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

Spotlight topic: Information Integrity During Crises.

Online extremism
Harassment and cyberbullying
