CFP: ICDF22 – International Congress on Disinformation and Fact-Checking

In the frame of a European Cooperation Erasmus + project on Disinformation and Fact-Checking, scholars are invited to submit their proposals to a conference which will be held in person at NOVA University of Lisbon, on June 23-24, 2022. Submission deadline: March 27th

Disinformation spread over digital networks is a threat to our democracies, societies, economies and individuals. Covid-19 led the World Health Organization to coin a new word – “Infodemic” – in order to designate the overload of information, including false and misleading one, in digital and physical environments. It is urgent to look at the complexities of disinformation and its implications, and to address strategies as to deal with information disorder.

The organizers are open to proposals that address one or more of the many wide-ranging questions relevant to this topic:

  1. Identifying and analysing new forms and strategies of information disorder in the fields of education, journalism, law and public policies, politics, natural sciences and other fields;
  2. Impact of information disorder in audiences and their mobilization;
  3. Identifying, through case studies, examples of strategies and good practices regarding fact checking in the fields of education, journalism, law and public policies, social sciences, health and natural sciences, technologies and digital media (applied research);
  4. AI applications and related innovations in fighting information disorder (applied research);
  5. Identifying and analysing contributions of digital media literacy or counter-narratives to combat disinformation.

Abstracts should have between 250 and 500 words. An author can only submit one proposal as first author and one as second author.
