Apologies for cross-posting ------------------------------------------------------ Dear colleagues,

We invite you to attend the first edition of the Multilingual and Multimodal Hate Speech Detection workshop that will be co-located with KONVENS 2021. The event will be held online.

The workshop program involves poster presentations, three keynote talks featuring multilingual, multimodal, and social aspects of online hate speech from distinguished researchers, and a panel discussion.

The zoom link for the workshop is: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82759379981?pwd=S2o4Y1NhM21jaGxQbFAyekoyUW5PZz09 If you want, you can also register to KONVENS (free of charge) here: https://konvens2021.phil.hhu.de/registration/ The program is available here: https://sites.google.com/view/mmhs2021/program Best wishes, MMHS 2021 organizers

2nd CFP: Multimodal and Multilingual Hate Speech Detection @KONVENS 2021 ------------------------------------------------------ Second Call for Papers: Multimodal and Multilingual Hate Speech Detection (MMHS) Workshop @KONVENS 2021

As the number and availability of social media platforms grow, the spread of hate speech among online communities (such as Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Youtube, and so on) is also dramatically increasing. In this workshop, we would like to discuss the challenges, approaches, frameworks, and technologies that could facilitate hate speech detection in multilingual environments and the consequences and implications of hate speech detection approaches for multilingual setup. Moreover, multimodal aspects, day by day, become an integral part of those above-mentioned communication mediums. If the message producer provides two sources of information together to deliver his/her message (e.g. a multimodal tweet or memes accompanied with an image or video), then it suffices to assume that the meaning is distributed into both modalities to some degree. In such cases, uni-modal approaches can easily fail. To mitigate this problem, all the existing modalities of input should be taken into account instead of relying on text-only content, which introduces new challenges for the researchers in this community.

The main goals of this workshop are to (i) discuss the latest development towards the detection and counter-speech research on hate speech, (ii) bring the multilingual and multimodal aspects into the foreground, (iii) facilitate networking and encourage collaboration, and (iv) create a future avenue for multimodal, multilingual, and cross-lingual hate speech research.

We welcome short-paper submissions that include ongoing research, lessons learned from unsuccessful methodological attempts, research proposals, and surveys highlighting opportunities for new approaches. Furthermore, we also invite uni-modal and specific-language focussed research topics and approaches that include a clearly-formulated direction towards either multimodality and multi-linguality.
