Call For Papers

Examples of cybersafety issues include cyberbullying, cyberthreats, fake news, recruiting minors via Internet services for nefarious purposes, misinformation, online harassment, using deceptive means to dupe vulnerable populations, exhibiting misbehaving behaviors such as using profanity or flashing in online video chats, spreading rumors or making hate speeches via WWW services, and many others. These issues have a direct negative impact on the social, psychological and in some cases physical well-being of the end users. An important characteristic of these issues is that they fall in a grey legal area, where perpetrators may claim freedom of speech or rights to free expression despite causing harm. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

Cyberbullying in social media
Misinformation and fake news in social media
Online harassment, cyberthreats, coercion, and undue social pressure
Misbehaving users in online video chat services
Trolls in chat rooms, discussion boards and other social media
Deception to shape opinion, such as spinning
Deceptive techniques targeted at vulnerable populations such as the elderly and K-12 minors
Bad actors in social media
Online exposure of inappropriate material to minors
Education and promoting safe practices
Remedies for preventing or thwarting cybersafety issues
Hate speech and rumors in WWW services
