Call for Contributions

The Multidisciplinary International Symposium on Disinformation in Open Online Media (MISDOOM) is returning for its 5th edition on 21 and 22 November 2023. This time, the conference will be hosted by the National Research Center for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) at Amsterdam Science Park (Netherlands). MISDOOM values multidisciplinary research and is designed to be inclusive of different academic disciplines and practices.

The symposium provides a platform for researchers, industry professionals, and practitioners from various disciplines such as communication science, computer science, computational social science, political science, psychology, journalism, and media studies to come together and share their knowledge and insights on online disinformation.

Symposium Topics

Participants can discuss and contribute to the following list of topics:


Industries are also invited to participate in the conference by submitting a contribution describing their approach to countering or detecting misinformation.

Submission Instructions

Given that we welcome both social scientists and computer scientists, and that the publication strategies of these fields differ, we solicit two types of contributions that, upon acceptance, result in the same opportunity to present at MISDOOM:

Important Note about Submissions

Both contribution types (papers and extended abstracts) must specify the discipline they are contributing to as keyword(s) in OpenReview at the time of submission (they should enter at least one of the two keywords "computer science" or "social science" in the keyword box).
Both paper and abstract authors are required to upload a zip file containing the source files of their papers (.doc, .tex files, images, etc.). Paper authors are required to include in their zip file also a completed copyright form (downloadable from here).
