Call for Papers

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Automated journalism: novel automated and human-in-the-loop solutions for rumour detection/verification, fact-checking, stance classification, evaluation of existing solutions and novel relevant applications. Submitted papers should describe how their advantages would lead to being adopted in practice by journalists and the public (e.g. improved generalisability, ability to provide explanations, reduced bias) and address ethical considerations.
  • Explainable and Multi-modal verification: explainable rumour verification systems, evidence-based solutions, uncertainty and prediction explainability and general interpretable and transparent AI-systems, as well as multi-modal rumour verification/fact-checking models, sources and data, non-textual and multi-modal features.
  • Content Moderation: novel content moderation systems for inhibiting misinformation spreading, domain-specific content moderation solutions as well as content moderation systems that showcase generalisability and are interpretable.

We invite submissions of technical papers and talk proposals:

  • Technical papers must be up to 4 pages (short papers) or up to 8 pages (long papers). Technical papers must contain novel, previously-unpublished material related to the topics of the workshop. Accepted papers will be presented orally and will appear in the workshop proceedings.
  • Talk proposals must be up to 2 pages describing the content of a short talk (the actual length will be determined based on program constraints).

Papers must adhere to the ICWSM guidelines and be submitted through EasyChair. You can contact the organizers (details below) for questions related to the submission or participation.
