Center for Informed Democracy and Social – cybersecurity (IDeaS) Conference
Hosted by Carnegie Mellon University
IDeaS will host a virtual conference on disinformation, hate speech, and extremism online in July 2021. This conference aims to advance the science of social-cybersecurity through research and applications in this area. The internet is an online breeding ground for growing and disseminating disinformation, hate speech and extremism. In this conference we ask: How is this done? Who is doing it? Why is it being done? What are the social consequences? How can it be countered?
