Theme Issue on Intelligent Systems for Tackling Online Harms

Personal and Ubiquitous Computing (IF = 2.000)


The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together a community of
researchers interested in tackling online harms and mitigating their impact
on social media. We seek novel research contributions on misinformation-
and harm-aware intelligent systems assisting users in making informed
decisions in the context of online misinformation, hate speech and other
forms of online harms. Expected contributions are original works on
intelligent systems that can circumvent the negative effects of online
harms in social media, by improving detection methods and diffusion
modelling as well as addressing concerns such as social biases, fairness
and explainability.


Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

* Analysis and prevention of misinformation effects (e.g. echo-chambers,
filter bubbles)
* Hate speech detection and countermeasures (abusive language,
cyberbullying, etc.)
* Modeling diffusion and propagation of harmful content in social media
* User/content trustworthiness
* Social bias detection and mitigation in data/algorithms
* Fairness and transparency in intelligent systems
* Explainability and transparency
* Dataset collection and annotation methodologies
* Evaluation methodologies and metrics Intervention and content moderation
* Impact of online harms in search and recommender systems
* Applications and case studies of misinformation- and harm-aware
intelligent systems
