The IDeaS Summer Institute is a hands-on training camp that teaches participants about the theories, methods, and tools to identify and combat disinformation, hate speech, and extremism online. This institute is aimed at graduate students, faculty, and personnel from industry, education and government who want to learn more about social-cybersecurity, an emerging field of research and policy.

This is an in-depth workshop on the state-of-the-art in social-cybersecurity. Topics covered include how social media is used to spread disinformation, hate-speech, and extremism online, types of technologies used to identify, combat, or measure the impact of these influence campaigns, and how communities can be more resilient in the face of such campaigns. Sessions will include seminars and technology demonstrations. Additional material for those who want to learn several of the key tools will be available.

Dates: Saturday June 3, 2023 and Monday June 5, 2023*
Those interested in learning more about tools used for this research have the option to stay through Wednesday June 7, 2023
For more information and to register go to the IDeaS website at cmu.edu/ideas-social-cybersecurity and check the event page.

Look forward to seeing you there!
