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.

Third International Workshop on Theory and Applications of Formal Argumentation (TAFA 2015)

Submission Deadline: April 27, 2015 May 4, 2015

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:
