Misinfocon is a conference focused on fostering interdisciplinary conversations on misinformation research and response. The MisinfoCon conference started as a concept at MIT Media Lab in February 2017. Since then, over ten MisinfoCon events have been convened across the world (Kyiv; Washington DC; Brazil; Perugia, Italy; and London).

The first Indian edition was held on May 12-14, 2023 at Thoughtworks Office in Bangalore. The conference convened technology, policy, media, and design professionals to cultivate an understanding and action around misinformation in India. The conference featured lightning talks and workshops for individuals and organizations working on researching and responding to misinformation in India.

Touching on different aspects of trust and safety online, the conference had a specific focus on:

  • Platform Research
  • AI and Media
