    CMNA 2014

    the 14th workshop on Computational Models of Natural Argument

    joint with the 1st International Workshop on Methodologies for Research on Legal Argumentation in association with JURIX 2014

    10th December 2014 – Krakow – Poland


    The series of workshops on Computational Models of Natural Argument is continuing to attract high quality submissions from researchers around the world since its inception in 2001. Like the past editions, CMNA 14 acts to nurture and provide succor to the ever growing community working on Argument and Computation, a field developed in recent years overlapping Argumentation Theory and Artificial Intelligence.

    AI has witnessed a prodigious growth in uses of argumentation throughout many of its subdisciplines: agent system negotiation protocols that demonstrate higher levels of sophistication and robustness; argumentation-based models of evidential relations and legal processes that are more expressive; groupwork tools that use argument to structure interaction and debate; computer-based learning tools that exploit monological and dialogical argument structures in designing pedagogic environments; decision support systems that build upon argumentation theoretic models of deliberation to better integrate with human reasoning; and models of knowledge engineering structured around core concepts of argument to simplify knowledge elicitation and representation problems. Furthermore, benefits have not been unilateral for AI, as demonstrated by the increasing presence of AI scholars in classical argumentation theory events and journals, and AI implementations of argument finding application in both research and pedagogic practice within philosophy and argumentation theory.

    Full information, including deadlines, are available at the conference website: CMNA 2014.

    15th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence & Law (ICAIL 2015)

    June 8 – June 12, 2015
    University of San Diego School of Law

    First Call for Papers

    The 15th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law (ICAIL 2015) will be held at the University of San Diego School of Law from Monday, June 8 to Friday, June 12, 2015.

    Artificial Intelligence and Law is a vibrant research field that focuses on:

    • Legal reasoning and development of computational methods of such reasoning
    • Applications of AI and other advanced information technologies that are intended to support the legal domain
    • Discovery of electronically stored information for legal applications (eDiscovery)
    • Machine learning and data mining for legal applications
    • Formal models of norms, normative systems, and norm-governed societies

    Since it began in 1987, the ICAIL conference has been established as the primary international conference addressing research in Artificial Intelligence and Law. It is organized biennially under the auspices of the International Association for Artificial Intelligence and Law (IAAIL). The conference proceedings are published by ACM. The journal Artificial Intelligence and Law regularly publishes expanded versions of selected ICAIL papers.

    NASSLLI 2014
    North American Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
    June 23-27 2014
    University of Maryland, College Park

    URL: http://www.nasslli2014.com

    The sixth  NASSLLI (after  previous editions  at UT  Austin, Stanford University,  Indiana  University and  UCLA)  will  be hosted  at  the University of  Maryland, College  Park, June  23-27 2014.  The summer school, aimed at  graduate students and advanced  undergraduates in a wide variety of fields, is loosely modeled on the long-running ESSLLI series  in  Europe. It  will  consist  of  a  number of  courses  and workshops, selected  on the basis  of proposals. By  default, courses and  workshops   meet  for   90  minutes  on   each  of   five  days.

    Proposals  are   invited  for  courses  or   workshops  that  present interdisciplinary  work  between  the areas  of  logic,  linguistics, computer  science,  cognitive   science,  philosophy  and  artificial intelligence, though work in just one area is within the scope of the summer  school if  it can  be applied  in other  fields. Examples  of possible  topics   would  include  e.g.  logics   for  communication, computational  semantics,  modal  logics, game  theory  and  decision theory,  dynamic  semantics,  machine  learning,  Bayesian  cognitive modeling,  probabilistic models  of language  and communication,  and automated theorem proving.

    First CFP: Argumentation Technologies@CLIMA XIV

    First Call for Papers

    Special Session on Argumentation Technologies

    CLIMA XIV – 14th International Workshop on Computational Logic in Multi-Agent Systems


    Corunna, Spain, September 16-17, 2013.

    Co-located with LPNMR’13.

    Submission deadline: June 10th (abstracts June 6th).

    Proceedings: LNCS/LNAI volume (available at the workshop).

    JLC Special Issue: Selected extended papers will be published in a
    Special Issue of the Journal of Logic and Computation.


    Argumentation is an important and exciting topic in Artificial Intelligence, where uses of argumentation have increased in recent years, throughout a variety of subdisciplines. Research activities range from theory to applications. The CLIMA XIV Special Session on Argumentation Technologies is intended to be a forum to discuss concepts, theories, methodologies, and applications of computational models of argumentation.

    We invite submissions related to (but not limited to) one or more of the following topics: (more…)

    Pragmatics and Dialectics of Argument: Special Issue of the Journal Studies in Logic, Grammar and Rhetoric


    K. Budzynska, F. van Eemeren & M. Koszowy (Eds.)

    February 4, 2013

    This special issue on Pragmatics and Dialectics of Argument is the third of a series of special issues dedicated to argumentation in the journal Studies in Logic, Grammar and Rhetoric (SLGR). The previous two issues were dedicated to major research strands in the philosophy of argument (vol. 29, 2009; in its introduction to Informal Logic, the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy says of SLGR that it has “published important special issue on the field”), and the computational approaches to argumentation (vol. 36, 2011).

    The volume will be organised into two parts focusing on the most general and impor- tant topics in pragmatics and dialectics of argument: Speech Acts and Argument, and Argumentation in Dialogue. This issue will also establish a new platform the aim of which is to encourage and support discussion amongst researchers in the argumenta- tion community. We therefore also solicit ‘Discussion’ papers: shorter contributions commenting on papers published in previous issues of the SLGR argumentation series. (more…)

    The purpose of this international workshop is to bring together researchers who apply formal methods, widely understood, to natural language argumentation in order to provide a reconstruction which can provide the basis for an evaluation.

    A related objective is to make the state of the art accessible to audiences who predominantly reconstruct natural language argumentation with more traditional formal or informal tools.

    The workshop will be held 20-21 September 2012, following the GAP.8 conference at the University of Konstanz, Germany.
