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


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.
