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:

12th International Workshop on Argumentation in Multi-Agent Systems

http://www.csc.liv.ac.uk/~sp/events/argmas15/

CALL FOR PAPERS

Submissions are invited for the 12th International Workshop on Argumentation in Multi-Agent Systems (ArgMAS 2015), to be held in Istanbul as part of AAMAS 2015.

ArgMAS 2015 will focus 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 (eg, 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 2015 will be to bring together the community of researchers working on argumentation in multi-agent systems. The workshop has the following technical goals:

THE FIFTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON LOGIC, RATIONALITY AND INTERACTION

October 28 – 31, 2015
Department of Philosophy,
National Taiwan University
Taipei, Taiwan

Institute of Philosophy of Mind and Cognition,
National Yang Ming University
Taipei, Taiwan

Conference Website: https://www.yoursaas.cc/websites/36224472513387025486/home.html

The LORI workshop series aims at bringing together researchers working on a wide variety of logic-related fields that concern the understanding of rationality and interaction. These fields include Game Theory and Decision Theory, Philosophy (in particular Epistemology), Linguistics, Computer Science, and Artificial Intelligence. The series aims at fostering a view of Logic as an interdisciplinary endeavor, and supports the creation of an East-Asian community of interdisciplinary researchers.

Topics

We invite submission of contributed papers on any of the broad themes of the LORI workshop series; specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, formal approaches to

TRUST, ARGUMENTATION AND TECHNOLOGY
Special issue of Argument & Computation
Guest edited by Fabio Paglieri (ISTC-CNR Roma)
Deadline for submission: 15 December 2013

RATIONALE

Trust and argumentation have both been explored extensively, for their own sake as well as in the context of their relevance for technological transformations. More recently, these topics have started to be studied together, with an eye to their numerous and deep interactions. Trust and argumentation converge independently from technology (e.g., trust in speakers often affect our assessment of their arguments), but recent ICT developments have greatly magnified their interplay.
