Disinformation Research: Current Trends and Perspectives

September 29 -30, 2023, Dubrovnik, Croatia

Call for Papers

With the proliferation of social media and other online platforms, the spread of mis- and dis-information has become an ever-increasing problem. The spread of mis- and dis-information can have a number of negative consequences, including damage to reputation, harm to individuals and society, and undermining of democratic processes and institutions. Understanding the problem in all its facets and extents entails considering the specific political and cultural contexts, and rests significantly on functional access to platform data.

This conference is intended to provide a forum for scholars, researchers, and practitioners from diverse disciplines to share insights and perspectives on current trends in disinformation research.

Confirmed keynote speakers are:

Prof. Samantha Bradshaw, American University, USA

Prof. Claes H. de Vreese, University of Amsterdam, NL

The conference seeks submissions that address a broad range of topics related to disinformation research, including but not limited to:

  • The role of social media platforms in the spread of disinformation
  • Approaches to detecting and debunking disinformation
  • The impact of disinformation on public opinion and behavior
  • The use of technology in countering disinformation
  • Methods for analyzing data from social media
  • Computer techniques for detecting and analyzing disinformation
  • Online data collection methods for disinformation research
  • Legal and policy approaches to dealing with disinformation
  • Ethical considerations in disinformation research

We encourage you to submit papers that draw upon rigorous scientific theory and methodology and offer new insights and perspectives on this pressing issue. By bringing together diverse perspectives and expertise, we hope to foster a more comprehensive and nuanced understanding of disinformation and develop more effective strategies to combat it.

We invite submissions of original research papers, case studies, and critical reviews of existing research on the above topics. Papers should be between 5,000 and 8,000 words in length, including references and appendices. References must conform to the APA Style of Referencing, 7TH edition.
