Symposium: Credibility Assessment and Information Quality in Government and Business  (Full-day)
Leaders: Jay Nunamaker, Judee Burgoon, Thomas Meservy, and Matthew Jensen


Discovering and gathering information from multiple disparate sources, assessing the quality and credibility of that information, and determining how and when to utilize the information in each stream is one of the most perplexing challenges that governments and businesses face. This symposium explores how governments and businesses can increase the fidelity and use of information streams. Assessing the credibility of information and increasing the quality of information streams is critical in many venues (e.g., law enforcement scenarios, border security, fraud investigations, intelligence gathering, etc.). Novel research involving new methods or insight into information gathering, situational awareness, credibility assessment, application of deception detection technologies, and establishing information quality is appropriate for this symposium.
