Abstract

For the fifth edition of the workshop on Mining Actionable Insights from Social Networks (MAISoN), we organized a special edition with focus on dis/misinformation mining from social media, co-located with CIKM 2020. This topic has attracted a lot of interest from the community since the Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic has given rise to an increase of misinformation on social media. The aim of this edition was to bring together researchers from different disciplines interested in mining dis/misinformation on social media. In particular, the distinguishing focus of this special edition was its emphasis on techniques that use social media data for building diagnostic, predictive and prescriptive analysis models related to misinformation. This means that there is rigorous attention for techniques that can be used to understand how and why dis/misinformation is created and spread, to uncover hidden and unexpected aspects of dis/misinformation content, and to recommend insightful countermeasures to restrict the circulation of dis/misinformation and alleviate their negative effects.
