Improving the efficiency of fact-checking by providing tools that automate parts of the process, or defining other processes for validating the veracity of claims made in online social media, are challenging problems with real impact on society, requiring an interdisciplinary approach to address them. The 1st Workshop on Reducing Online Misinformation Exposure (ROME) will provide a forum for researchers to discuss these problems and to define new directions for work on automating fact checking, reducing misinformation online, and making social media more resilient to the spread of fake news.

We invite submissions of research papers on computational fact-checking, fake news detection, and the analysis of misinformation spread on social media. Topics of interest include, but are not be limited to:

– Claim extraction/detection

– Stance detection

– Claim source detection

– End-to-end evaluation of fact-checking

– Supporting evidence retrieval

– Quantifying and addressing biases in fake news detection

– Explainable models for computational fact checking

– Software architectures for large scale fake news detection

– Provenance and source detection of claims

– Analysis of the spread of misinformation

– Crowd-sourcing for fact checking

Submission Guidelines:

All submissions will be undergo double-blind peer review by the programme committee and will be judged on their relevance to the workshop and their potential to generate discussion. Submissions have to present original research contributions not concurrently submitted elsewhere (pre-prints submitted to ArXiv are eligible).

Submissions should be at most 6 pages, excluding references, must be submitted electronically through the EasyChair submission site ( and must be formatted according to ACM SIG proceedings format (available at

Each accepted paper will be presented in one of the sessions of the workshop, and it will be allocated a presentation slot in a poster session. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop to present the paper in person. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue in a journal.

All questions about the workshop and submissions should be emailed to: rome2019workshop[at]
