Given the widespread use of social network platforms, issues of
security, privacy, and trust, along with the proliferation of
fake news and profiles, are becoming increasingly prominent.
Recent studies show that over 90% of users share potentially
sensitive personal information on social media platforms.
This, combined with the recent data breaches experienced by
popular social networks, highlights the need to protect users
not only from external adversaries but also from the social
network provider itself. Furthermore, modern tools provided
by Artificial Intelligence (e.g., deepfakes) have contributed
to the spread of fake news, misinformation, and cybercrimes
such as online scams and cyberbullying.
This workshop focuses on the challenges arising from the above
issues with the aim to identify strategies and solutions to
mitigate their effects.
The workshop is intended for researchers and practitioners
working in the fields of cybersecurity, privacy, social media,
information technology, and related disciplines.

Program Chairs
Francesco Buccafurri - University Mediterranea of Reggio Calabria (Italy)
Vincenzo De Angelis - University of Calabria (Italy)

We invite submissions of original research papers, case studies,
and position papers addressing the workshop themes.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

-Privacy-preserving techniques for social networks
-Threats and vulnerabilities in social network platforms
-Trust-building mechanisms in online communities
-Artificial intelligence for security in social networks
-Open source intelligence in social networks
-Detection and mitigation of misinformation and sybil attacks
-P2P social networks
-Anonymity in social networks
-User behavior analysis and intervention strategies
-Regulatory and policy approaches to addressing social network challenges
-Ethical considerations in social network research and practice
