2nd Workshop on Advances In Argumentation In Artificial Intelligence (AI^3)
The aim of the AI^3 conference is to bring together researchers interested in computational models of argument and its recent challenges, including the representation of argumentation structures in natural language texts; the automatic discovering of argumentation in text or speech and the extension of abstract argumentation models with quantitative reasoning system such as probabilistic reasoning and fuzzy reasoning.

Seventh Italian Workshop on Machine Learning and Data Mining 2018 (MLDM.it)
Following the success of the first six editions of the Italian Workshop on Machine Learning and Data Mining (MLDM.it) at the AI*IA Symposiums and AI*IA Conferences on Artificial Intelligence, this workshop aims at bringing together researchers actively involved in the fields of machine learning, data mining, deep learning, pattern recognition, and knowledge discovery.
Besides traditional novel ML&DM technique presentations, the edition of this year focuses in particular on the presentation of new open problems and challenges for the ML&DM addressing the wider AI area and its applications.
Organizers: Alessio Micheli and Claudio Gallicchio

Fourth Italian Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Ambient Assisted Living 2018 (AI*AAL.it)
The fourth edition of the AI*AAL.it workshop aims to strengthen the forum on the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Ambient Assisted Living collecting knowledge, experiences and trends showing how AI could add value to the promotion of a new generation of innovative support systems in these domains. Contributions from cross-disciplinary approaches and stockholders involved in the ageing society are also welcome, to support AI approaches to be a player in the future of AAL.
Organizers: Stefania Bandini, Gabriella Cortellessa, Andrea Gorrini and Filippo Palumbo

RCRA Incontri E Confronti 2018 (RiCeRcA)
The workshop RiCerCA is directed to all researchers of the RCRA (Rappresentazione della Conoscenza e Ragionamento Automatico) working group, ed is also opened to new members and AI*IA 2018 participants. Goal of the workshop is to facilitate the interactions among researchers coming from the various areas of interest of RCRA, which includes topics within knowledge representation and reasoning. (The main language of the workshop is Italian.)

2nd Workshop on Natural Language for Artificial Intelligence 2018 (NL4AI)
The goal of the NL4AI workshop is to explore the area situated at the intersection between Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence. The workshop aims at providing a broad overview of recent activities in both fields in Italy. During the workshop, both students and researchers will have the opportunity to participate in a unique forum where a number of relevant initiatives for the Italian community will be presented and discussed.
Organizers: Pierpaolo Basile, Valerio Basile, Danilo Croce, Felice Dell’Orletta and Marco Guerini

The 5th Italian Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics 2018 (AIRO)
The goal of AIRO 2017 is to foster the discussion about the use of Artificial Intelligence methods to design intelligent robots. AI principles and methods play a crucial role in several areas of the robotics research (e.g., field, service, social robotics, etc.) and are pervasively exploited at various level of robot architectures. We argue that robot intelligence is a property arising from the interaction between robots and their environments.
Organizers: Salvatore Anzalone, Alessandro Farinelli, Alberto Finzi and Fulvio Mastrogiovanni

Multi-Agent Systems in the Context of Social Networks (MAS&SN)
Social Networks are nowadays one of the most widely used IT applications. They are enabling new forms of relationships, information spreading, group management, commercial interactions, advertisement, etc.
In this context, multi-agent systems (MAS) appear to be a key technology since they feature the characteristics of autonomy, interaction and encapsulation that are fundamental aspects of IT infrastructures of social networks.
The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on aspects of multi-agent systems and social networks, in order to highlight common points and propose novel solutions in which MAS can serve as an effective technology to address the different challenging problems.
