Meeting Description:

The conference stems from a three-year project involving researchers from five countries, in which a large corpus of online verbal interactions was extracted from online social media and annotated for analysis. The analytical results will be presented at the conference, which aims to attract external participation from scholars and students interested in the widespread and ever-growing expression of hate, prejudice and discrimination in computer-mediated social platforms.
