2nd ACM International Workshop on Multimedia AI against Disinformation MAD'23
ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval ICMR'23
Thessaloniki, Greece, June 12-15, 2023

*** Call for papers ***
* Paper submission due: February 28, 2023
* Acceptance notification: March 31, 2023
* Camera-ready papers due: April 20, 2023
* Workshop @ACM ICMR 2023: June 12, 2023 (TBD)

Modern communication does not rely anymore solely on classic media
like newspapers or television, but rather takes place over social
networks, in real-time, and with live interactions among users. The
speedup in the amount of information available, however, also led to
an increased amount and quality of misleading content, disinformation
and propaganda Conversely, the fight against disinformation, in which
news agencies and NGOs (among others) take part on a daily basis to
avoid the risk of citizens' opinions being distorted, became even more
crucial and demanding, especially for what concerns sensitive topics
such as politics, health and religion.

Disinformation campaigns are leveraging, among others, market-ready
AI-based tools for content creation and modification: hyper-realistic
visual, speech, textual and video content have emerged under the
collective name of “deepfakes”, undermining the perceived credibility
of media content. It is, therefore, even more crucial to counter these
advances by devising new analysis tools able to detect the presence of
synthetic and manipulated content, accessible to journalists and
fact-checkers, robust and trustworthy, and possibly based on AI to
reach greater performance.

Future multimedia disinformation detection research relies on the
combination of different modalities and on the adoption of the latest
advances of deep learning approaches and architectures. These  raise
new challenges and questions that need to be addressed in order to
reduce the effects of disinformation campaigns. The workshop, in its
second edition,  welcomes contributions related to different aspects
of AI-powered disinformation detection, analysis and mitigation.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Disinformation detection in multimedia content (e.g., video, audio,
texts, images)
- Multimodal verification methods
- Synthetic and manipulated media detection
- Multimedia forensics
- Disinformation spread and effects in social media
- Analysis of disinformation campaigns in societally-sensitive domains
- Robustness of media verification against adversarial attacks and
real-world complexities
- Fairness and non-discrimination of disinformation detection in
multimedia content
- Explaining disinformation /disinformation detection technologies for
non-expert users
- Temporal and cultural aspects of disinformation
- Dataset sharing and governance in AI for disinformation
- Datasets for disinformation detection and multimedia verification
- Open resources, e.g., datasets, software tools
- Multimedia verification systems and applications
- System fusion, ensembling and late fusion techniques
- Benchmarking and evaluation frameworks
