12 - 14 October 2020, Third Workshop on Argument Strength (ArgStrength2020), Koblenz, Germany

Date: 12 - 14 October 2020
Location: Koblenz, Germany
Deadline: Monday 20 July 2020

Arguments vary in strength. The strength of an argument is affected by e.g. the plausibility of its premises, the nature of the link between its premises and conclusion, and the prior acceptability of the conclusion. The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts from the fields of artificial intelligence, philosophy, logic, and argumentation theory to discuss questions related to the strength of arguments.

Keynote speakers: Ofer Arieli (The Academic College of Tel-Aviv, Israel) Elise Bonzon (Paris Descartes University, France) Sanjay Modgil (King's College London, England) Wolfgang Spohn (University Konstanz, Germany) Serena Villata (I3S research centre in Sophia Antipolis, France).

We solicit abstracts, which have to be in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS style. Extended abstracts (2 pages max., including references) can report on research in progress or other issues of interest. Submissions are handled through the EasyChair conference management system.
