MISINFOCON 5.0 TO FOCUS ON FIGHTING MISINFORMATION

24/10/2018

Building on the strength and momentum of our highly popular MisinfoCon events that have taken place at MIT and in in London, Kyiv, and Washington DC, Mozilla is thrilled to announce that MisinfoCon 5.0 will be taking place on Wednesday, 24 October in London, UK, at MozFest House.

Hosted by the Mozilla Foundation and Hacks/Hackers, this event will highlight UK and European researchers, ideas, and solutions. Featuring a consortium of powerful players in international policy, technology, journalism, and media literacy, this gathering will help make important strides in exploring the implications of misinformation across the web, and identifying methods of fighting it.

Rather than spending the convening focused on the current state of misinformation, MisinfoCon London will be centered around practical steps that the policy, academic, research, and technology community can take towards building an internet we want. We will explore the indicators, tools and metrics that can be used to measure the success of campaigns addressing misinformation, and create collaborative opportunities to develop the frameworks we need to be confident in our successes.
