CALL FOR PAPERS
International Workshop on Modeling, Learning and Mining to Counter Information Disorder (GENUINE - modelinG, lEarning and miniNg to coUnter INformation disordEr)
Workshop website: https://sites.google.com/icar.cnr.it/genuine2023/home
in conjunction with
the 22nd IEEE/WIC International Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (WI-IAT 2023, https://www.wi-iat.com/wi-iat2023/index.html)
26-29 October 2023 | Venice, Italy
GENUINE will be held in online mode.
The increasing popularity of social media has fostered the proliferation of online information disorder, i.e., the authoring, publishing and viral dissemination of misinformation, disinformation and malinformation. This phenomenon involves growing volumes of information, with a harmful impact on individuals, organizations, institutions and society, which sows doubt, confusion and mistrust, besides undermining the trustworthiness of online contents. GENUINE aims to establish a premier international forum on countering online information disorder. In particular, the workshop will bring together practitioners, technologists, scholars, researchers and applied scientists from academia, research institutes, laboratories and industry, in order to
• (i) discuss challenges, solutions, practices, principles, limitations and results, (ii) exchange and refine ideas, (iii) develop models, methods, techniques, case studies and tools, (iv) design algorithms, approaches, platforms and frameworks;
• provide a venue, where participants with different expertise and perspectives are connected to grow a research community, that promotes cross-disciplinary cooperation with scientific exchanges within and across various focal areas, for unprecedented synergistic insights and cutting-edge applications;
• advance existing research through a multi-disciplinary analysis of open issues, emerging trends, unexplored directions and novel solutions;
• support newcomers to the field of online information disorder via an in-depth view of the current research.
Scope and Topics of Interest
GENUINE solicits recent advancements in all aspects of interest to countering information disorder. Especially welcomed are models, methods, techniques, algorithms, systems, empirical assessments, evaluation metrics, new data sets, case studies, preliminary ideas, work in progress, demonstrations and tools. Submissions will be reviewed by their appropriateness and relevance to the workshop as well as the novelty, importance, technical soundness and clarity of their contributions.
The workshop invites submissions on all relevant topics, including but not limited to:
1. Misinformation, disinformation and malinformation: fake news, hoaxes, urban legends, crowdturfing, revenge porn, hate speeches, disinformation campaigns, conspiracy theories, propaganda, rumors, deceptive reviews, bias, deepfakes, clickbaits, bullying, etc.;
2. Temporal analysis of information disorder;
3. Profiling of authors, spreaders and consumers: roles, trustworthiness, reputation, (mis)behavior, etc.;
4. New datasets for disorder classification and prediction;
5. Automatic claim-verification, fact-checking and debunking;
6. Reliability of online information and crowdsourcing;
7. Information disorder from spam, bots and trolls;
8. Filter bubbles, echo chambers, selective exposure, polarization;
9. Spreading and propagation of information disorder;
10. Knowledge representation, sentiment analysis, opinion mining and information disorder;
11. Impact and accountability of information disorder;
12. Mitigation of information-disorder impact.
