The International Workshop on Cyber Social Threats, CySoc 2022, will be held in conjunction with the 16th International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM 2022) on June 6, 2022.

This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners in computer, social, and medical sciences from both academia and industry to exchange ideas on understanding the multi-faceted social, psychological, cultural, emotional, communicative, and, linguistic aspects of harmful content while leading the discussion on building novel computational methods to reliably detect, derive meaning of, interpret, understand, and counter them. 

We welcome papers that employ quantitative and/or qualitative, analytical, theoretical approaches to examine a diverse range of issues related to online harmful communications. Papers on resources/data and tools will also be welcome either for demos or for short/regular talks.
