Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript/introduction


The goal of this inaugural workshop on cybersafety is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, government and research labs working in the area of cybersafety. We broadly interpret cybersafety as covering those topics related to making the Internet safer for its users, especially characterizing, detecting and mitigating online misbehavior that is not necessarily illegal but is still damaging to the Internet's users. Examples of cybersafety topics include detection and mitigation of cyberbullying in social networks, bad actors in social media, vandals and hoaxes in the Internet, deceptive and/or abusive online advertising. The focus of this workshop is on computational methods in cybersafety, including new algorithms, tools, data mining techniques and analysis, systems and applications for the detection, prevention and mitigation of various cybersafety issues, as well as education and promoting safe practices.
