Call For Papers


The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussion about issues
related to information credibility and its evaluation.

As computers and computer networks become more sophisticated, a huge
amount of information, such as that found in Web documents, has been
accumulated and circulated. Such information gives people a framework for organizing their daily
lives. A well-functioning society needs technology that can be used to
manage this wealth of information and, in particular, investigate its credibility.
This technology would be able to handle a wide range of tasks:
extracting credible information related to a given topic,
organizing this information, detecting its provenance, clarifying
background, facts, and various related opinions and the distribution of
them, and so on. Especially, as the Web is becoming a major source of
information nowadays, it is necessary to provide efficient and reliable
methods for evaluation of Web content's trustworthiness.


We invite submissions on any aspects of information credibility on the
Web. Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Information credibility evaluation and its applications
- Content analysis for credibility evaluation
- Sentiment analysis of content
- Credibility of Web search results
- Search models and applications for trustworthy content
- Conflicting opinion detection and analysis
- Credibility evaluation of user-generated content
- Information credibility evaluation in social networks
- Analysis of information dissemination
- Estimation of author and publishing venue reputation
- Spatial and temporal aspects in information credibility
- Estimation of information age, provenance and validity
- Sociological and psychological aspects of information credibility
- Users study for information credibility
- Risk assessment of information credibility
- Multimedia content credibility
- Persuasive technologies
- Information credibility in online advertising and Internet monetization
- Object identification on the Web
