Special issue of JANCL on Logic and Argumentation

Deadline: 15 November 2016

The interplay of logic and argumentation has a long history, from (at least) Aristotle to very recent knowledge representation and reasoning and formalization of argumentation in artificial intelligence. This is a highly interdisciplinary research field, involving researchers from several fields including logic, philosophy, computer science, artificial intelligence, and law.

In order to facilitate further cross-fertilization, Journal of Applied Non-Classical Logics invites contributions to a special issue on Logic and Argumentation. We welcome submissions of original research in either area, and particularly encourage submissions in the intersection between the two.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Abstract argumentation
- Applications of logic and argumentation, including in law, linguistics, medical reasoning, AI, multi-agent systems
- Argument mining
- Argumentation schemes
- Belief revision
- Computational argumentation
- Dialogical argumentation
- Dynamic logic
- Formal, semi-formal and informal models for argumentation
- Game theory and logic and/or argumentation
- Judgment aggregation
- Logic and argumentation in knowledge representation
- Nonmonotonic logics
- Numerical and uncertainty reasoning
- Reasoning about knowledge and belief
- Reasoning and argumentation under uncertainty
- Structured argumentation

The special issue is a follow-up to the First Chinese Conference on Logic and Argumentation that took place at Zhejiang University in May 2016.

Important Dates

Manuscript submission: 15 November, 2016
Anticipated publication: Spring 2017.
