14-16 May 2010, NMR'2010 Special session on Argument, Dialogue and Decision, Toronto, Canada

Date: 14-16 May 2010
Location: Toronto, Canada
Deadline: 29 January 2010

Since the work of John Pollock, Ronald Loui and others in the eighties, argumentation has proven to be successful in nonmonotonic logic. In the early nineties Dung and others showed that argumentation is also very suitable as a general framework for relating different nonmonotonic logics. Finally, in recent years argument-based logics have been used to facilitate reasoning and communication in multi-agent systems.

Argumentation can be studied on its own, but it also has interesting relations with other topics, such as dialogue and decision. For instance, argumentation is an essential component of such phenomena as fact finding investigations, computer supported collaborative work, negotiation, legal procedure, and online dispute mediation. However, only recently researchers have begun to explore the use of argumentation in these contexts.

For more information, see http://www.cs.sfu.ca/NMR2010/NMR_2010/Argument,_Dialog_and_Decision.html.

We invite submissions of original research on all topics related to the logical study of argumentation and its connections with decision and dialogue, in particular the study of argument-based logics and the development of argument-based logical systems in formal models of multi-agent reasoning and interaction. Deadline for submission of papers: January 29 (Friday), 2010
