- Application of NLP tools to analyze social media content and other large data sets for offensive language detection;
- NLP models for cross-lingual offensive language identification;
- Computational models for multi-modal abuse detection;
- Development of corpora and annotation guidelines and taxonomies for offensive language identification;
- Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) for abusive language detection systems.

More information is available on the special issue website.
