Abstract

The workshop program of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence’s Fourteenth International Conference on Web and Social Media was held June 8 to 20, 2020. The conference venue, which had originally been Atlanta, Georgia, USA, had to be revamped into a virtual edition, due to the 2019 Corona Virus Disease pandemic. There were five full-day workshops in the program. They included Emoji Understanding and Applications in Social Media (W1), Social Sensing: Narrative Analysis on Social Media (W2), News and Public Opinion (W3), Cyber Social Threats (W4), and Mediate: Social and News Media Misinformation (W5). This report contains summaries of all five workshops.
