4 - 5 October 2018, Bridging the gap between formal argumentation & actual human reasoning, Institute for Philosophy II, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany

Date: 4 - 5 October 2018
Location: Institute for Philosophy II, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany
Deadline: Tuesday 31 July 2018

Non-monotonic reasoning has received a lot of attention in the fields of artificial intelligence and philosophical logic. One of the most promising paradigms is formal argumentation. One central goal of this research program is to give a (normative) account of actual human reasoning. However, there is still a substantial gap between these formal models and many real-life instances of the formalized phenomena.

This workshop welcomes abstracts (≈ 1000 words) can be submitted on the following topics addressing the gap between formal models of human reasoning and and real-life instances of the formalized phenomena. In particular the this workshop we intend to approach this gap from three different angles: the Linguistic angle, the Inferential angle, and the Cognitive angle.
