The Stanford Internet Observatory is proud to announce the second annual Trust and Safety Research Conference. Join us September 28-29, 2023 for two days of presentations, conversations and networking bringing together top researchers on trust and safety. 

The conference will be hosted on Stanford’s campus, and will include many opportunities for informal networking. We hope you will join us in our effort to learn from each other and build towards a future in which technology protects peoples’ safety, respects their dignity, and lives up to the expectations of citizens.
