AI^3 2019: 3rd Workshop on Advances In Argumentation In Artificial Intelligence

== Call For Papers ==

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 3rd Workshop on Advances In Argumentation In Artificial Intelligence (AI^3 2019) that will be co-located with the XVIII International Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AI*IA 2019, http://aiia2019.mat.unical.it/). The workshop is promoted by the Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence Working Group (https://sites.google.com/a/aixia.it/argomentazione/)

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=ai3-2019.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Explainable AI with Argumentation

Persuasion systems

Formal, semi-formal and informal models for argumentation

Properties and evaluation of formal models of argumentation

Computational properties of argumentation

Traditional and ranking-based semantics

Instantiations of abstract argumentation frameworks

Implementation of argumentation systems

Relationships amongst different argumentation frameworks

Philosophical theories of argumentation

Argument mining

Argumentation in agent and multi-agent systems

Dialogue based on argumentation

Strategies in argumentation

Decision making based on argumentation

Argumentation-based negotiation

Argumentation, trust and reputation

Argumentation for coordination and coalition formation

Argumentation and other Artificial Intelligence techniques

Argumentation and game theory

Argumentation and probability

Argumentation and fuzzy-logic

Argumentation and narrative

Argumentation and computational linguistics

Argumentation and human-computer interaction

Reasoning about action and time with argumentation

Tools for supporting argumentation

Practical applications of formal models of argumentation

Systems for learning through argument

Argument-based machine learning

Validation and evaluation of applications of argumentation

== Submissions ==

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=ai3-2019.

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).

The option of organizing a special issue on the journal \”Intelligenza Artificiale\” (including selected papers subject to a second revision) is under consideration.

For each accepted contribution, at least one of the authors is required to attend the conference and present the paper.
