CFP: CyberSafety 2019 - The Fourth Workshop on Computational Methods in Online Misbehavior, Co-located with The Web Conference 2019

Cybersafety 2019
CALL FOR PAPERS

----------------------------

CyberSafety 2019: The Fourth Workshop on Computational Methods in

Online Misbehavior

https://cybersafety2019.github.io/

Description

----------------

The Web provides a valuable space for individuals to interact with each
other, and read, publish and share content.  Despite these benefits, the
proliferation of virality and anonymity in the modern Web has resulted in a
breeding ground for online misbehavior and compromised cybersafety in
varying forms such as fraudulent engagement, misinformation and propaganda,
user deception and scams, harassment, hate speech, cyberthreats,
cyberbullying and more. These issues have severe negative impacts in terms
of manipulated user perception and increased exposure to harmful and
offensive content at best, and social, psychological and physical harm at
worst. Thus, they unsurprisingly incur large social and financial costs
from the perspectives of online social platforms who aim to improve user
experience and encourage web activity.

The study of these topics has become especially crucial in recent years,
due to the constant increase in abuse vectors and tactics, and has taken a
social spotlight due to its widespread ramifications. The CyberSafety2019
workshop provides an interdisciplinary venue for researchers in various
computational fields including network science, machine learning, data
mining, human-computer interaction, natural language processing, web
systems, security and privacy and more, to gather and present recent
advances in research.

Submission and Publication

--------------------------------------

Authors are invited to submit papers of 2-8 pages in length. Papers should
be submitted electronically in PDF format, using the ACM SIG Proceedings
format, with a font size no smaller than 9pt. The formatted manuscript
should be submitted via EasyChair link. (Enter as an author and then select

All submissions will be peer-reviewed. All accepted papers will be
presented at the workshop. In addition, accepted papers will be published
in the companion proceedings of the WWW conference and the ACM digital
library, unless the authors choose to opt out from publishing their papers.
We encourage both academic and industry submissions of the following types,
but not limited to:

Novel research papers in full or short length
