A member of our research team, Róbert Móro, participated at the first edition of Conference for Truth and Trust Online, which took place October 4 – 5, 2019 in London.

The conference brought together more than 250 participants from academia, industry (e.g., Facebook, Google, Microsoft), media organizations (e.g., BBC, Reuters) and NGOs (e.g., Full Fact) and covered topics, such as disinformation, misinformation, propaganda, hate speech, fact checking, etc. which are also the central topics of our research projects REBELION and MISDEED. Therefore, it was a great opportunity to discuss our progress in developing Monant infrastructure for monitoring, detection, and mitigation of false information and antisocial behavior and to establish contacts with other researchers working on similar problems.

The conference proceedings are available online.
