    CFP: ArgLP 2015

    Call for Papers: The First International Workshop on Argumentation and Logic Programming (ArgLP 2015).

    Cork, Ireland, 31 August, 2015
    (co-located with ICLP 2015)

    Workshop webpage:
    https://ddll.inf.tu-dresden.de/web/Sarah_Alice_Gaggl/ArgLP2015

    Selected papers will be considered for a special issue of Fundamenta Informaticae (http://www.iospress.nl/journal/fundamenta-informaticae/)

    MOTIVATION

    Argumentation has been more and more an active research field in areas as Multi-Agent Systems, Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Artificial Intelligence, Philosophy, Law, etc. From the computational point of view, logic programming has been influencing fundamental roots of argumentation. Indeed, since Dung formalized a family of argumentation inferences in terms of the so called argumentation semantics, he showed that these argumentation semantics have strong roots in logic-based theories.

    The relationship between logic programming and argumentation has attracted increased attention in the last years. Studies range from translating one into the other and back, using argumentation to explain logic programming models, and using logic programming systems to implement argumentation-based languages (ASPARTIX, DIAMOND). Influences go both ways and we believe that both fields can benefit from learning about each other.

    This year the presentation of the results of the First International Competition on Computational Models of Argumentation (ICCMA) will be done at TAFA 2015 (co-located with IJCAI 2015). Since some of the most widely known argumentation solvers are based on logic programming methodologies, e.g., ASPARTIX, it is expected that new argumentation solvers based on logic programming could appear. In this setting, ArgLP is aiming at catching the attention of the logic programming community to increase the influence of logic programming in the new theoretical and practical developments of argumentation.

    Third International Workshop on Theory and Applications of Formal Argumentation (TAFA 2015)

    Submission Deadline: April 27, 2015 May 4, 2015

    http://homepages.abdn.ac.uk/n.oren/pages/TAFA-15/index.html

    Call For Papers

    The Third International Workshop on Theory and Applications of Formal Argumentation (TAFA 2015) will be co-located with IJCAI 2015 in Buenos Aires, and builds on the success of the previous two iterations of the workshop. The workshop is inspired by the recent rapid growth of interest in formal models of argumentation and their application in diverse sub-fields and domains of application of Artificial Intelligence. TAFA 2015 aims to further foster uptake of argumentation as a viable AI paradigm with wide ranging application by providing a forum for further development of existing ideas and for the initiation of new and innovative collaborations.

    TAFA 2015 therefore encourages submission of papers on formal theoretical models of argumentation and their application in (sub-fields of) AI, and on the evaluation of models of argumentation, both theoretical (in terms of formal properties) and practical (in concretely developed applications). We particularly encourage work on theories and applications developed through inter-disciplinary collaborations. The First International Competition on Computational Models of Argumentation (ICCMA) will be co-located with TAFA-15.

    The workshop will solicit papers dealing with, but not limited to, the following topics:

    CFP: “Global Justice: Radical Perspectives” (Special Issue of Global Justice: Theory, Practice, Rhetoric) | Public Reason.

    This special issue asks whether the liberal framework, which arguably has not sufficiently and/or systematically addressed structural issues of class, power and recognition, actually lacks the conceptual resources to do so. It aims to understand whether more radical approaches can help us to cast light on what global injustice actually is and what we should do about it. What can feminist, post-colonial, Marxist, queer theory, disability studies, critical race theory, recognition theory, radical democratic and post-development approaches tell us about global justice, if anything? Do identity, history, gender, race and power matter to global justice? Can we incorporate these critical perspectives into the existing debates? Or must we reconfigure what constitutes global justice or injustice if we are to make sense of the real-world inequities that motivate critical theorists and social movements?

    Deadline: 31 August, 2015

    Update: Submission Deadline Extended to 20 April 2015

    CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: SPECIAL ISSUE ON TWENTY YEARS OF VISUAL ARGUMENT

    Argumentation and Advocacy invites submissions for a special anniversary issue on visual argument titled “Twenty Years of Visual Argument.” The issue, scheduled to be published in 2016, will celebrate and extend the groundbreaking work on visual argument that appeared in the journal’s 1996 (double) issue on visual argument. Since that time, visual argument has become a central topic in argumentation theory and been featured in presented papers and published articles that explore case studies and investigate the possibility of a theory of visual argument. The special issue editors invite articles that outline what argumentation scholars can learn from the last twenty years of work. In particular, we are interested in articles that address theoretical considerations, helping frame a coherent theoretical account of visual argument (and possibly other multi-modal forms of argument). We welcome theoretical contributions that illustrate their point with concrete examples of visual argument and their use. We are committed to having the special issue represent the wide range of scholarly traditions that engage visual argument including, but not limited to, informal logic, philosophy, and rhetoric.

    Questions about the special issue may be directed to the guest editors:

    CFP: OSSA 11

    Call for Proposals

    Ontario Society for the Study of Argumentation (OSSA)

    Argumentation, Objectivity and Bias

    May 18-21, 2016 University of Windsor

    The OSSA Organizing Committee invites proposals for papers and posters which deal with argumentation, as it intersects with the ideal of objectivity and the problem of bias.

    Abstracts prepared for anonymous refereeing must be submitted electronically no later than SEPTEMBER 7, 2015. Instructions on how to prepare and where to submit abstracts will be made available in March on the OSSA 11 website: www.uwindsor.ca/ossa .

    Keynote speakers:

    • Mark Battersby, Critical Inquiry Group Vancouver
    • Scott Jacobs, Department of Communication University of Illinois, Urbana
    • Michel Meyer, Chaire de Rhétorique et d’Argumentation, Université Libre de Bruxelless
    • Susana Nuccetelli, Department of Philosophy St. Cloud State University

    The J. Anthony Blair Prize

    OSSA wishes to promote the work of graduate students and young scholars in the field of argumentation studies. Thus we strongly encourage submissions from this group. The J. Anthony Blair Prize ($1000 CDN) is awarded to the student paper presented at the Conference judged to be especially worthy of recognition. The competition is open to all students whose proposals are accepted for the Conference. Canadian graduate students who need financial assistance in order to attend should advise the Organizing Committee when they submit their proposals. For the purpose of the Conference, a graduate student is one who has not completed his or her graduate program by September 7, 2015. (Additional information about this prize will also be available on the website.) All conference related inquiries should be sent to ossa@uwindsor.ca
