(Updated) 30 August 2020, ECAI Workshop on Computational Argumentation & Cognition (COGNITAR 2020), Virtual

Date: Sunday 30 August 2020
Time: 09:00-18:00
Location: Virtual
Deadline: Monday 23 March 2020

This workshop will aim to bring together researchers whose interests bridge between AI and other disciplines such as Cognitive Science, Language and Philosophy, to study how computational argumentation can form an underlying theoretical and practical basis for modeling cognition and building human-centric AI systems.
The main general questions that will concern the workshop are:
- Can argumentation provide the basis for computational models of human reasoning that are cognitively adequate?
- How can we form a synthesis between computational argumentation and theories of cognition that will give us models of computational cognition for the development of AI systems?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ECAI-2020 will be held as a virtual conference, and so will the COGNITAR-2020 workshop.

We invite extended abstracts or long papers for contributed talks. We welcome position papers as well as ongoing and preliminary work on topics that bridge Cognition and Argumentation.
Papers should be written using the ECAI2020 style. Position papers are expected to be short (2-4 pages). Long submissions
should not exceed 7 pages plus one for references.
