Center for Informed Democracy and Social Cybersecurity (IDeaS)

Carnegie Mellon. June 2023.

Carnegie Mellon Univeristy, Pittsburgh, PA

September 20-23, 2023.

Natural disasters, elections, climate changes, insurrections, pandemics, and new technologies are rocking the world. People talk about events, both these massive ones and much smaller ones, on line. Social media platforms, search engines and websites have become the window through which these events are viewed and interpreted. Those on social media seek and shape information, build and join communities, often with impacts in the physical world. One consequence 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?

IDeaS will host a hybrid conference on disinformation, hate speech, and extremism online in September 2023. This conference aims to advance the science of social-cybersecurity through research and applications in this area.

It is exploited across all information dissemination platforms, including social media, news media, financial and non-financial reporting, and other broadcast vehicles.

Convene global thought leaders from psychology, journalism, financial reporting, political science, and related information science fields to discuss: the societal impact of strategic disinformation; methods used to disseminate disinformation; the psychology of entrenched belief systems, and means to mitigate disinformation efficacy.
