CfP special issue of IfCoLog Journal on Argument Strength

Deadline: Wednesday 1 March 2017

We invite authors to submit papers to a Special Issue on Argument Strength to be published in IfCoLog (Journal of Logics and Their Applications, College Publications). In December 2016 the workshop "Argument Strength 2016" took place at Ruhr-University Bochum. In the special issue we intend to publish original high quality contributions on the basis of talks given at the workshop and we also welcome contributions from other authors.

Arguments vary in strength. The strength of an argument is affected, for instance, by the plausibility of its premises, the nature of the link between its premises and its conclusion, and the prior acceptability of the conclusion. The aim of this special issue is to collect original and high quality contributions from the fields of artificial intelligence, philosophy, logic, and argumentation theory, which are related to the strength of arguments.
