The Working Group 4 Use Case in Incivility in Media and Social Media (UC4.1.1) is involved in researching offensive language, exploring its recognition and identification methods in various everyday texts which might contain abusive content. Offensive language research may lead to establishing algorithms that spot offensive content and enable automatic protection of users from undesirable messages.

COST actions are about networking, fostering collaboration and advancing research and innovation. Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) constitute a powerful tool designed to serve these objectives. They are mobility grants that support a researcher’s visit to an institute in another COST participating country in order to get trained (or train) on new methods, and techniques, gain access to data and tools not available in their home institute, share knowledge and closely collaborate with researchers of the host institute. STSMs are intended especially, but not solely, for young researchers and can further advance their academic careers.
It has been a while since NexusLinguarum started walking. Our kickoff meeting took place on 28th October 2019 in Brussels, where representatives of the 33 countries constituting the initial network met to discuss the objectives, plans, scope and goals of the different working groups, as well as to elect the action’s management board.
