On 16 November 2015 Markos Zampoglou of CERTH-ITI and Jochen Spangenberg of Deutsche Welle participated in the Thematic Meeting “Multimedia Truthfulness Verification in Legal Environment and Social Media”, co-located with WIFS 2015, in Rome, Italy.
On 21 September 2015, REVEAL was represented in the session “News and User-Generated Content” at Prix Italia 2015. The panel discussed the impact of eyewitness media on the news business, what has changed in the past, and how to deal with respective challenges now and in the future. This provided an ideal opportunity to also showcase some of our REVEAL activities.
The summer is almost over, and we are in full swing again. That includes project dissemination activities. One upcoming event at which you can meet and find out about REVEAL and related verification issues takes place as part of Prix Italia in Turin on 21 September 2015.
