Trust and Disinformation

E-Mail Adresse für Einreichungen: www.conftool.net/sas2022

Call-Bezeichnung: Call for Papers

Veranstaltende Institution: HLRS

The profound detrimental effects of disinformation makes it one of the most pressing issues of our times. Disinformation not only deceives people and leads them to hold false beliefs. Rather, the thriving of disinformation raises the more fundamental problem of which sources of information can be trusted at all. By potentially challenging our relationships of trust, disinformation represents a more profound disruption of the information space.

The general aim of the conference is to gain a better and more comprehensive understanding of the effects, causes and mechanism of disinformation. We also aim at discussing the various advantages and problems of possible countermeasures.

Possible topics are:

What is disinformation, misinformation, malinformation, malicious rumors or fake news?

What are the various effects of disinformation ?

What are the causes and conditions for the thriving of disinformation?

What are (in-)adequate measures against disinformation?

Why is disinformation (mis-)trusted? What impact may it have on our trust relationships?

What do we know about the history of disinformation? How do disinformation and, for example, propaganda relate to each other?

How can the novel technical conditions be placed in an appropriate relationship to long-evolving social-structural conditions for the success of disinformation? Do we overestimate the former and underestimate the latter?
