Call for Proposals

The call for proposals to TSRC 2024 is now closed.

The Stanford Internet Observatory invites presentation proposals covering a wide range of topics related to online safety including but not limited to topics exploring the intersection of trust and safety with gaming, generative artificial intelligence, elections and regulatory approaches to online platforms. Examples of accepted presentations from 2022 and 2023 are available in the archived agendas. Proposals are due April 30, 2024 at 11:59 PM PT.

We are soliciting five types of proposals:

  • Lightning Talk: A 5 minute presentation accompanied by slides. One speaker per talk. 
  • Research Presentation: A 12 minute presentation with slides with no more than two speakers. 
  • Poster: Ideal for students who want to share their research with attendees. The conference organizers will print all posters for participants. The poster session will be held at the happy hour on the first day of the conference and has been well-attended at previous conferences.
  • Participant-Organized Panel: A 60 minute discussion on a specific theme, featuring 3-4 panelists and a facilitator. Proposals should include the names of all presenters, panel structure, and topic.
  • Workshop: A 60-90 minute interactive session with clear learning objectives. 

Presenters will also be eligible for discounted tickets for the conference. We strive to notify all applicants of decisions by May 31, 2024. 


The Journal of Online Trust & Safety will publish Conference Proceedings for the Trust & Safety Research Conference. Paper submissions for the Conference Proceedings are due May 1, 2024. Authors with accepted papers in the Conference Proceedings will be given the opportunity to present at the conference. You may submit to both the proceedings and the conference call.
