Formal models of argumentation have received a lot of attention, in particular in the Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR) community. Various applications of argumentation (cyber-democracy, explainable AI, law, medicine, multi-agent systems, public policy making, sustainable development, etc) exist, which benefit from the advances on the theoretical aspects of argumentation, while highlighting new theoretical issues. An important aspect of research on applied argumentation is the development of software related to these argumentation formalisms. The goal of this workshop is to emphasize the efforts of the community to strengthen the links between formal works on argumentation, their implementations and these domains of application.
The workshop specifically welcomes preliminary works on the above topics, more particularly on:
- Experimental evaluation methods for argument-based applications
- User-oriented evaluation and empirical testing of argument-based applications
- Argumentation and online disinformation
- Web-based systems and argument mining
- Dialogue systems and strategic aspects of argumentation
- Design principles and software engineering aspects of tools for formal argumentation
- Benchmark generation and empirical studies on real-world argumentation graphs
- System descriptions of tools for formal argumentation
- Argumentation in multi-agent systems
- Argumentation and law
- Argumentation and medicine
We are happy to announce that Prof. Antonis Kakas will give a talk at Arg&App 2023.
