Online antisocial behaviour, such as spreading of misinformation, but also hate speech, cyber-bullying, etc. presents a serious problem, which has a a critical overreach to society. For example, misinformation which is often spread by the means of social networks, influences opinions of people and consequently, their decisions (e.g., during voting or whether they should take a medical treatment). In case of medical treatments, it can cause avoidable deaths of patients or outbreaks of diseases which could be effectively suppressed by vaccination. The challenges regarding antisocial behavior include its characterization, automatic and timely detection, and mitigation.

Workshop on Antisocial Behaviour Detection organized as a part of REBELION and MISDEED projects provides a forum for discussion of these challenges and identification of perspective approaches addressing them. The researchers are invited to present their advances as well as work-in-progress. We are interested in novel methods capable of automatic detection of these phenomena using machine learning, natural language processing, but also utilizing the work of crowd or experts. We are equally interested in novel tools and infrastructures for data collection and its annotation and for detection as well as mitigation of antisocial behaviour.
