Event description

Description

Building on the strength and momentum of our highly popular MisinfoCon events at MIT and in London, Kyiv, and Washington DC, we’re excited to announce MisinfoCon 7.0 on Saturday, February 22nd at the National Academies of Sciences in Washington DC.

Why an event focused on health and science?

As journalists and technologists, we have to find ways to mitigate misinformation's effects on public health and the environment. MisinfoCon@NASEM 2020 will help make important strides in discussing themes such as improving people's health and climate literacy, constructing effective science messaging and identifying the implications of science misinformation on people's attitudes towards the media, science data and information and awareness campaigns.

Open Mic

We're very excited to highlight new research on health and science misinformation from academics, graduate students and any initiatives in the field of health and science communication.

If you would like to feature among our open-mic participants during the event, please fill out this form (ASAP) or send us or an email to ahmed@hackshackers.com.

About MisinfoCon@NASEM

Misinfocon@NASEM is hosted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) and Hacks/Hackers. The event features a consortium of insightful researchers, grass-root and institutional organizations from the worlds of journalism, academia, and research.

We are a community of people focused on the challenge of misinformation and what can be done to address it. Our physical gatherings seek to strengthen the trustworthiness of information across the entire news ecosystem: journalism, platform, community, verification, and reader experience.
