Background and objective
The spread of misinformation on social media raises many challenges for individuals, groups, and democratic institutions and affects both online and offline behavior. Finding effective solutions for these challenges requires cooperation across social science disciplines including political science, psychology, communication studies, and sociology. More concretely, we need theories and empirical studies that examine the effects of misinformation on individual and group behavior, its influence on institutions, and the psychological mechanisms that contribute to its spread. This conference will bring together scholars working across disciplines and contexts, unified by the goal of improving our understanding of these issues.
