The first CONSTRAINT workshop was held with AAAI 2021 on february 8 2021. for the results of that workshop, go here:


From the CONSTRAINT 2 website:

the second edition of this workshop will encourage researchers working on multilingual social media analytics to think beyond the conventional way of combating online hostile posts. The workshop will focus on three major points:

  1. Regional language: The offensive posts under inspection may be written in low-resource regional languages (e.g., Tamil, Urdu, Bangali, Polish, Czech, Lithuanian, etc.).
  2. Emergency situation: ​The proposed solutions should be able to tackle misinformation during emergency situations where due to the lack of enough historical data, learning models need to adopt additional intelligence to handle emerging and novel posts.
  3. Early detection: ​Since the effect of misinformation during emergency situations is highly detrimental for society (e.g., health-related misadvice during a pandemic may take human’s life), we encourage the solutions to be able to detect such hostile posts as early as possible after their appearance on social media.

Special Theme: We particularly encourage researchers to submit their papers (opinion, position, resource, tool, etc.) which may focus on the Multimodal low-resource language processing to combat COVID-19-related online hostile content
