First TOFFEe workshop on online disinformation

Dear friends and colleagues,

we kindly ask you to advertise the 1st TOFFEe workshop and contribute with your latest results on methodologies for fighting disinformation.

TOFFEe - https://toffee.imtlucca.it/ - is an interdisciplinary research project funded by IMT School For Advanced Studies Lucca.

The project ambition is to overcome some of the limitations of existing social platforms, which often dedicate little attention to trustworthy interactions among peers and to reliability of information. The aim of the project is to increase people's confidence on the data they get and who they follow, while minimising the risk of exposure to fake information and malicious actions.

 As part of the dissemination activities of the project, on October 24th and 25th, 2019, we organise an International Workshop where different approaches for fighting fakes will be presented. You can find all infos at https://toffee.imtlucca.it/workshops/toffee-workshop-1.

Simona De Rosa, T6 Ecosystem

Fiorenza Lipparini, Plus Value
