You are cordially invited to attend the “Second Deakin-UGM Joint Research Workshop on COVID-19 Fake News Detection and Intervention” which will be held on 19 October, 2022. During the COVID-19 pandemic, fake news is spreading rapidly on social medias. Fake news on topics such as the origin of the virus, preventive measures or treatments, and the actions of public authorities, have resulted in serious safety threats to communities, misled people into risky behaviours that could harm health, led to mistrust in health authorities, and undermined the public health responses. The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss and share the ideas and solutions on the detection and intervention of COVID-19 fake news. This workshop is sponsored by the Study Melbourne Research Partnership program which has been made possible by funding from the Victorian Government through Study Melbourne. The project “Multilingual COVID-19 Fake News Detection and Intervention” is led by Deakin University and in partnership with UGM (Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia).

The project team will present an update on the research progress of the project. The workshop is featured with several keynote speeches and a panel. Invited speakers include University leaders, world leading researchers, and government officials.
