The Social Cybersecurity Working Group conducted a special day-long mini-conference on Disinformation at SBP-BRIMS 2019.  The session involved day long events with three panels on different topics in the disinformation research space: Disinformation Panel on Social Science Approaches; Disinformation Panel on Operational Relevance; and Disinformation Panel on Applications. In addition to the panels, a disinformation data challenge was conducted with poster presentations and the winner of the challenge was recognized and invited to submit their work in a special issue published by Springer’s Computational and Mathematical Organization Theory journal.

  •  The event was attended by roughly 150 participants from all over the world. The presentations were recorded and made available on SBP-BRIMS’ YouTube channel. 

The Social Cybersecurity Working Group developed a website that provides a collection of resources for confronting the disinformation problem that are meant to be equally helpful for the academic and practitioner community. 

  • Resources include: a list of individuals working in this space; research groups active in this space; tools; datasets; publications; and events relevant for the community.
