Call for Proposals: Developing Situational Awareness in the Information Environment

twitterlinkedin

The war in the Ukraine has shown how competing narratives by different actors can be used to promote different viewpoints and justify actions taken by specific actors, groups and governments. These narratives, based on both real and/or false information not only increase the difficulty for analysts and decision makers to gain an  understanding of what is actually happening on the ground at any moment in time, but also provide insights into the actors and their goals in the information domain.

The Information Warfare STaR shot is calling for proposals from researchers to develop computational approaches to detect, classify and present different narratives appearing in online news and social media relating to a single topical event. Expected outcomes are the development and demonstration of effective content analytics and visualisations, in a prototype user interface for analysts and decision makers.

Proposals for up to a 4-5 month research plan will be considered and successful proposals may be funded up to $100,000.

Submissions are due on Tuesday 31 January 2023 at 3:00pm (ACDT) and should be in pdf format and sent via email to IWSS.submissions@defence.gov.au
