This session will be a workshop for experts in both new media and online targeting, designed to brainstorm about the next frontier in cyber harassment. We will discuss the characteristics of trolling, harassment, and targeting -- and what can be learned from how these currently operate that would be applicable toward curtailing harassment in behavioral-based virtual worlds. The workshop is designed for experts in online harassment and emergent media, who will share and generate new ideas about how online harassment will function in non-text based environments, like gaming, VR/AR/XR, and image-based media.
