### Overview ###

The fourth annual Conference on Truth and Trust Online (TTO 2022) is a unique forum for academia, industry, non-profit organizations, community organizers, and other stakeholders to discuss the problems surrounding participation in online platforms with respect to truth and trust, together with socio-technical approaches for understanding and addressing them.

### Technical Papers ###

Technical papers should contain novel, previously unpublished material related to the topics of the conference and should be limited to *8 pages* with unlimited pages for references. Papers should be technical in nature, authors seeking to publish a position/opinion paper should instead submit a talk proposal, possibly accompanied by a blog post. Accepted papers will be presented either orally or as posters. Authors will be able to opt out from inclusion of accepted papers in the TTO proceedings, e.g., if they plan to publish their work elsewhere. Double submissions are allowed, but they should be declared as a footnote on the first page of the paper.

We invite technical papers of the following types:

- Analysis Papers: the core focus of the paper is to generate new insights about trust and
truth online, rather than the specific method applied.

- Methodology Papers: the core focus is to test the effectiveness of a proposed method.

- Reproduction Papers: provides new insights by presenting a more holistic view of a prior
topic, and by trying to reproduce results documented in prior work.

- Resource Papers: presents a new resource, such as a dataset or tool.

- Use Case Papers: presents new insights about a specific use case, such as an event or a

**Papers that deal with human subjects and data related to human subjects should have a section that discusses the protections that were used during data collection and analysis.**

Technical papers will be judged by at least two program committee members.

Submissions need to follow the provided TTO template, which is also available on Overleaf. These are available at:

**Anonymity requirements**: technical papers will be subject to mutually-anonymous reviewing. Please submit anonymous manuscripts that do not contain information that identifies the authors or their organization.

### Talk Proposals ###

Talk proposals should be 2 pages long, describing the content of a roughly 15-minute talk (the actual length will be determined based on program constraints). We invite submissions from scholars, activists, developers, lawyers, ethics experts, fact-checkers, public servants, journalists, and all-around researchers. We welcome talks covering case studies, lessons learned, research results, open challenges, and more: TTO attracts world-renowned experts; if you are excited to give a talk to such a group, and you think they would be excited to hear it, then you should submit a proposal.

Talk proposals should also use the same TTO Template as the technical papers, with a limit of 2 pages in content, and additional reference pages if needed. Submissions must NOT be anonymous.
