Deadline is approaching for the registration of the 7th MCAA Annual Meeting and Conference!




Parallel sessions such as," *#DemocracyAtRisk, how social media challenges democratic process?"* could be of interest of the scientists who work on the intersection between "NLP" and "social media". Even though many scientists insist on analysing "social media context", don't you think that it violates human rights? People cannot be as they are, due to pressure coming from such studies. Moreover, some personal studies of user accounts might lead to wrong conclusions, as understanding someone is not an easy process. For instance, there could be many factors leading someone to share their ideas, which could not be detected automatically or by human annotators. Subjectivity is a problem in such studies, even if it is done by any professional in the field (social media experts, health professionals, sociologists, psychologists etc.)

In that session, we can discuss more about these aspects..

Other sessions such as "structural violence and harassment within scientific environment" and "how artificial intelligence, robotics and bionics influence accessibility and inclusion?" could be interesting to join. However, there exist many other sessions about "business venture", "PhD studies" and so on.

This event is also beneficial for networking, as Marie Curie researchers are in the best category in Europe and worldwide!
