Call for papers : Nordic network on the study of online disinformation

With its active participation in the Nordic Network on Disinformation (NORDIS) project, Aarchus University organizes a series of three workshops to be held as part of the initiative “Online disinformation: an integrated view”.

As the university is also a member of the SOMA (Social Observatory for Disinformation and Social Media Analysis) consortium, we would like to share their Call for Papers for a conference on online disinformation that will be held in Aarhus.

Within the context of Defining and Measuring Disinformation, the NORDIS project encourages submissions that address but are not limited to the following aims:

  • Operational definition of disinformation
  • Tracking disinformation propagation
  • Mapping and quantifying disinformation
  • Data access and format for measuring disinformation propagation
  • Methods for analyzing disinformation at scale

The submitted papers should contain 800-word abstracts outlining empirical, theoretical or policy-oriented papers that address these or associated topics, accompanied by a 100-word biography of the presenter(s) together with contact details.

All the above should be sent by 30 March to Lynge Asbjørn Møller via email lyngemoller[at]cc.au.dk. Notification of acceptance will be sent out 5 April.

Questions related to practical matters about the workshop may be addressed also to Lynge Asbjørn Møller via email lyngemoller[at]cc.au.dk. Academic questions may be addressed to Anja Bechmann via email anjabechmann[at]cc.au.dk.
