The 9th European STAMP Workshop and Conference (ESWC) 2021 CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Runs from Saturday, May 01 to Wednesday, June 30.

STAMP stands for Systems-Theoretic Accident Model and Processes, it is a new accident causality model based on systems theory. It expands traditional models that focus on individual component failures or chains of directly-related failure events to include more complex processes and unsafe interactions among system components. STAMP is accompanied by two primary methods: System Theoretic Process Analysis (STPA) which focuses on hazard analysis and Causal Analysis based on STAMP (CAST) which focuses on accident analysis.

ACMWebSci21 virtual conference workshop

People You May Know (PYMK) . From research to film: how to turn your research into a documentary.

Researchers unearth all sorts of things. Dr Charles Kriel, Associate Fellow, King's Centre for Strategic Communications (KCSC), King’s College London wrote a paper for a Nato Journal in 2017, then was hired by the DCMS Select committee as a Special Advisor to support the investigations into Cambridge Analytica of 2018. Something he heard , said by Cambridge Analytica's Alexader Nix grabbed his attention - and that lead to People You May Know , a chilling, investigative documentary now streaming on Amazon Prime.

It follows the way in which social media data, big data, predictive analytics and psychometric data when combined can give up to 5000 data points for any targeted individual. The addition of AI and generation of content to scale can target Facebook dark ads to people - all of which can lead to their mobilisation, activation in the service of politics - in the case study this film presents into Trump's foot-soliders in the run-up to the 2020 Presidential Election.

For data scientists, social media researchers, specialists in machine learning and AI this film shows how the manipulation of data , leads to the manipulation of people. We are pleased to host this workshop with Dr Charles Kriel and Katharina Gellein Varker , the researchers and filmmakers behind this filmed journey. Professor Lucy Hooberman, a former Executive Producer and Factual programme Commissioner chairs this workshop where we will show you how to turn your research into a film, if you have something momentous to say. We will discuss any sections of the film of interest, take all questions and try and provide answers. In addition participants will have some time to pitch their ideas to the panel for some expert feedback!

For further information : please email l.hooberman@warwick.ac.uk

If you register for this workshop you will need also to register for the Conference Screening of the film and the panel discussion to follow, based on the issues raised in the film rather than how to make a film - register here: https://websci21.webscience.org/
