The IDeaS Summer Institute is an intense, 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.

Led by IDeaS Directors Dr. Kathleen M. Carley and Dr. David Danks, the Summer Institute will be virtual, distributed from 10-15 June  2021.
