co-located with XVII Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AI*IA 2018) 20-23 November 2018, Trento, Italy
Promoted by the Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence Working Group
Argumentation is the study of the processes and activities involving the production and exchange of arguments, where arguments are attempts to persuade someone or something by giving reasons for accepting a particular conclusion as evident. As such, argumentation provides procedures for making and explaining decisions and is able to capture diverse kinds of reasoning and dialogue activities in a formal but still intuitive way, enabling the integration of different specific techniques and the development of trustable applications.
For these reasons, over the last two decades formal argumentation has become a main research topic in Artificial Intelligence. Given that the study of argumentation is inherently interdisciplinary, the goal of the workshop is to stimulate discussions and promote scientific collaboration among researchers involved in the field of argumentation from different perspectives, including computational, linguistic, philosophical and psychological aspects. Besides researchers having argumentation as a major research interest, scholars from research fields indirectly related to argumentation (including non-monotonic reasoning, logic programming, linguistics, natural language processing, philosophy and psychology, just to mention a few of them) are particularly welcome, both to discuss foundations and issues in argumentation, and to present challenges and problems for which argumentation may represent a viable AI‐paradigm.
We invite submissions of the latest research results concerning applications and theory of computational argumentation to the 2nd Workshop on Advances In Argumentation In Artificial Intelligence (AI³ 2018) that will be co-located with the XVII Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AI*IA 2018, http://aixia2018.fbk.eu/ ).
Authors are invited to submit their papers in English of up to 15 single spaced pages for full papers. Shorter works must not exceed 5 pages. All paper submissions will be done electronically, via the EasyChair system at the link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ai31.
Extended versions of selected papers (subject to a second revision) will be published on a Special Issue of Intelligenza Artificiale the official journal of the Italian Association of Artificial Intelligence printed by IOS press.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
The workshop invites two types of submissions: full papers, possibly already submitted to other conferences or journals, and short papers, which are particularly suitable for presenting work in progress, software prototypes, extended abstracts of doctoral theses, or general overviews of research projects. Authors are invited to submit their papers in English of up to 15 single spaced pages for full papers. Shorter works must not exceed 5 pages. All paper submissions will be done electronically, via the EasyChair system at the link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ai31.
All papers will be peer reviewed and final copies of papers for inclusion to the conference proceedings will be published on CEUR as "CEUR Workshop Proceedings AI*IA Series" (Scopus indexed). Manuscripts should be formatted using the Springer LNCS style (formatting instructions are available at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).
For each accepted contribution, at least one of the authors is required to attend the conference and present the paper.
Further information will follow soon.
