One of the aims of the workshop was to survey existing tools and techniques which can be leveraged to detect and analyze online radicalization along with to reach an understanding of what type of components are available, and how they can be used by stakeholders in real-world analysis scenarios. The workshop triggered valuable discussions among the experts and participants with regards to issues related to evaluation and quality assurance of such techniques.
