Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
Nowadays one of the biggest problems Internet users are facing is the increasing false content that is shared. Even this is not a new problem, still due the spread especially via social networks, this problem become almost incontrollable. In this context, users need to be trained how to spot, analyze and report such type of content. Therefore, our role as educators is to make our students to be aware of the big context and to understand that only by a cooperation and collaboration among users and business (the industry represented by i.e. Facebook, Google etc.) the problem could be reduced.

Hi, Laura! We've accepted this proposal, *and* we think it would benefit from some additional detail on what you are going to cover. If you do update the sessions descriptions, let me know because when you edit the proposal, it will bump it into the general discussion category and I'll need to put it back into the accepted category! Cheers.
