This year’s annual conference on disinformation will be held online, from  Monday September 28nd to Friday October 2nd. Two sessions will take place each day, between 14:00-16:30 CEST, each exploring a theme defining the disinformation phenomenon.

We’ll also be joined by Graphika’s Camille François who will interview “fake news” strategist Mirko Ceselkoski and reflect on Mirko’s experience of the 2016 US election. Later on in the week we will hear from cofounder of First Draft Dr. Claire Wardle, European Commission Vice President of Values and Transparency Vĕra Jourová, Nick Pickles from Twitter Public Policy and Clément Wolf, Global Public Policy Lead at Google.
