Workshop on Argument Mining: Perspectives from Information Extraction, Information Retrieval and Computational Linguistics

9-10 July 2014, Dundee, Scotland

http://www.arg.dundee.ac.uk/swam2014

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION

Submissions of position statement are invited for the SICSA Workshop on Argument Mining to be held in Dundee, Scotland.

Argument mining exploits the techniques and methods of natural language processing, or more specifically – text and opinion mining, for semi-automatic and automatic recognition and extraction of structured argument data from unstructured natural language texts. Lying at the intersection of sentiment analysis and computational models of argument, it is attracting increasing attention with an ACL workshop on the topic in Baltimore (http://www.uncg.edu/cmp/ArgMining2014/) and a meeting dedicated to the topic in Warsaw (http://argdiap.pl/argdiap2014).

FIRST CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

Summer School on Argumentation: Computational and Linguistic Perspectives

Thu Sept 4th – Mon Sept 8th 2014, Dundee, Scotland http://ssa2014.arg.dundee.ac.uk/

The Summer School aims to provide attendees with a solid foundation in computational and linguistic aspects of argumentation and the emerging connections between the two. Furthermore, attendees will gain experience in using various tools for argument analysis and processing.

The School is being held in the days before the COMMA 2014 conference in Pitlochry (http://comma2014.arg.dundee.ac.uk) and will include tutorials from the conference’s invited speakers, as well as other leading academics in computational approaches to argumentation and linguistics.

ArgDiaP 2014: the 12th ArgDiaP Conference “From Real Data to Argument Mining”

23-24 May 2014, Warsaw, Poland

IGSAR 2014: the 2nd Interdisciplinary Graduate School on Argumentation and Rhetoric “Corpus Analysis in Argument Studies”

21-24 May 2014, Warsaw, Poland

Submissions are invited for the 12th ArgDiaP conference “From Real Data to Argument Mining” to be held in Warsaw, Poland.

The 12th ArgDiaP conference is dedicated to argument mining. We will discuss techniques and methods for analyzing real data in natural arguments which will ultimately help us to automatically recognize and extract argumentative structures. The confirmed invited speakers are:

  • Prof. Fabio Paglieri (Istituto di Scienze e Tecnologie della Cognizione — CNR, Rome, Italy)
  • Prof. Andrea Rocci (Istituto di Argumentazione, Linguistica e Semiotica, Universita della Svizzera Italiana, Lugano, Switzerland)
  • Prof. Patrick Saint-Dizier (Institut de Recherches en Informatique de Toulouse — CNRS, France).

Associated with the conference is the 2nd edition of the Interdisciplinary Graduate School on Argumentation and Rhetoric, IGSAR. Students will participate in two days of introductory tutorials (21-22 May) and in the ArgDiaP conference (23-24 May). Thanks to the financial support offered by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, students may apply for grants to cover a registration fee to participate in four days of IGSAR (accommodation and travel have to be covered by a participant).

First Call For Papers

JELIA 2014

14th European Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence

Madeira Island, Portugal
September 24-26, 2014

http://www.uma.pt/jelia2014

Submission Deadline: May 19 (Abstracts); May 23 (Papers)

About JELIA

Logics have, for many years, laid claim to providing a formal basis for the study and development of applications and systems in Artificial Intelligence. With the depth and maturity of formalisms, methodologies and logic-based systems today, this claim is stronger than ever.

The European Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence (or Journées Européennes sur la Logique en Intelligence
Artificielle – JELIA) began back in 1988, as a workshop, in response to the need for a European forum for the discussion of emerging work in this field. Since then, JELIA has been organised biennially, with proceedings published in the Springer-Verlag series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence. Previous meetings took place in Roscoff, France (1988), Amsterdam, Netherlands (1990), Berlin, Germany (1992), York, UK (1994), Évora, Portugal (1996), Dagstuhl, Germany (1998), Málaga, Spain (2000), Cosenza, Italy (2002), Lisbon, Portugal (2004), Liverpool, UK (2006), Dresden, Germany (2008), Helsinki, Finland (2010) and Toulouse, France
(2012).

The increasing interest in this forum, its international level with growing participation of researchers from outside Europe, and the overall technical quality, have turned JELIA into a major biennial forum for the discussion of logic-based approaches to artificial intelligence.

Aims and Scope

The aim of JELIA 2014 is to bring together active researchers interested in all aspects concerning the use of logics in Artificial Intelligence to discuss current research, results, problems, and applications of both theoretical and practical nature. JELIA strives to foster links and facilitate cross-fertilization of ideas among researchers from various disciplines, among researchers from academia and industry, and between theoreticians and practitioners.

AIMS AND SCOPE

Argumentation is an exciting research topic in artificial intelligence, with a broad spectrum of research activities ranging from theory to applications. The International Conference on Computational Models of Argument (COMMA) is a regular forum for presentation and exchange of the latest research results related to computational aspects of argumentation. After the successful editions in Liverpool (2006); Toulouse (2008); Desenzano del Garda (2010); and Vienna (2012); COMMA 2014 will be held in Scotland in September 2014.

Trends in Logic XIV: The Road Less Travelled Off-stream applications of formal methods
Entia et NominA workshop

Ghent University, Belgium, July 8-11, 2014

trendsinlogic2014@gmail.com

Theme

Logicians have devoted considerable e ort to applying formal methods to what are now considered core disciplines of analytic philosophy: philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of language and metaphysics. Researchers in these fields have been accused of sharpening their knives without actually cutting anything of interest to those outside of philosophy. The focus of formal methods is changing and our intent for this conference is to further counter the impression of idleness
with respect to philosophy at large. The focus of the workshop is to be on those applications of formal methods in philosophy which might be of interest to people working on philosophical questions of more direct relevance to human life. We plan three sessions with the following invited speakers:

Session 1 Applications of formal…

CALL FOR PAPERS

Eleventh International Workshop on Argumentation in Multi-Agent Systems

ArgMAS 2014

www.mit.edu/~irahwan/argmas/argmas14/

Revised submission date! (See below.)

—————————————————————-

Submissions are invited for the Eleventh International Workshop on Argumentation in Multi-Agent Systems (ArgMAS 2014), to be held in Paris, France, as part of AAMAS 2014.

For ArgMAS 2014, papers are solicited on the concepts, theories, methodologies, and applications of computational models of argument in creating autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. Argumentation can be abstractly defined as the formal interaction of different arguments for and against some conclusion (e.g., a proposition, an action intention, a preference, etc). A single agent may use argumentation techniques to perform individual reasoning, to resolve conflicting
evidence, or to decide between conflicting goals.   Multiple agents may also use dialectical argumentation in order to identify and reconcile differences between themselves, through interactions such as negotiation, persuasion, and joint deliberation.

The main goal of ArgMAS 2014 will be to bring together the community of researchers working on argumentation in multi-agent systems. The workshop has the following technical goals: (more…)
