UPDATE: SECOND 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.

“Truth and Persuasion”

September 24-26, 2015,
Sassari (Italy)

Call for Papers

The S.I.F.A. (Italian Society for Analytic Philosophy) is pleased to announce its Midterm Conference on Truth and Persuasion.

General Aim

The conference aims to advance our understanding of the relationships between the concepts of truth and persuasion. While the absolute conception of truth has been widely criticised, the philosophical implications of this critique are far from clear. There is a general agreement that we need a conception of truth sensitive to contexts and to historically situated subjects. Some have concluded that truth is local and rational argumentation culturally bounded. Others have suggested that sound argumentation is culturally relative. What is the role of truth and rational argumentation in the exchange among different cultures? Are conversations among cultures based on persuasion, rather than truth? The Conference aims to refocus the discussion on the intricacies and
complexities of the relation between truth and persuasion, a theme that has been largely neglected in the last decades.

Keynote Speakers

The Keynote speakers will include:

Simon Blackburn
Marian David
Wolfgang Huemer
Frans van Eemeren

Rhetoric Society of America Conference

Atlanta, Georgia
May 27-29, 2016
#RSA16

via the RSA website:

The 2016 theme “Rhetoric and Change” can be read in two directions. Rhetoric prompts change, but we also bring change to rhetoric. Even our various definitions of rhetoric begin from the shared premise that rhetoric is the study and theory of adaptation, transformation, improvisation, alteration. In essence, rhetoric is the study of change.

The 2016 conference theme invites inquiries about all kinds of change: evolutions and revolutions, transformations and deformations, progresses and failures. We encourage presenters to consider rhetorics of change and the material effects (or lack thereof) of such rhetorics. As we near the 50th anniversary of the Rhetoric Society of America, we may also consider our own disciplinary (r)evolutions.

    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
