Papers due: March 27, 2023

The fourth MEDIATE workshop will be held on June 5, as part of the
International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM). The main
goal of the workshop is to bring together media practitioners and
technologists to discuss new opportunities and obstacles that arise in the
modern era of information diffusion. This year's theme is: Misinformation:
automated journalism, explainable and multi-modal verification and content

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Automated journalism: novel automated and human-in-the-loop solutions for
rumour detection/verification, fact-checking, stance classification,
evaluation of existing solutions and novel relevant applications. Submitted
papers should describe how their advantages would lead to being adopted in
practice by journalists and the public (e.g. improved generalisability,
ability to provide explanations, reduced bias) and address ethical
- Explainable and Multi-modal verification: explainable rumour verification
systems, evidence-based solutions, uncertainty and prediction
explainability and general interpretable and transparent AI-systems, as
well as multi-modal rumour verification/fact-checking models, sources and
data, non-textual and multi-modal features.
- Content Moderation: novel content moderation systems for inhibiting
misinformation spreading, domain-specific content moderation solutions as
well as content moderation systems that showcase generalisability and are

We invite submissions of technical papers and talk proposals:
- Technical papers must be up to 4 pages (short papers) or up to 8 pages
(long papers). Technical papers must contain novel, previously-unpublished
material related to the topics of the workshop. Accepted papers will be
presented orally and will appear in the workshop proceedings.
- Talk proposals must be up to 2 pages describing the content of a short
talk (the actual length will be determined based on program constraints).

Papers must adhere to the ICWSM guidelines (
and be submitted through easychair (
