12 - 14 October 2020, Third Workshop on Argument Strength (ArgStrength2020), cancelled/postponed

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.

After consideration the organizers decided to postpone ArgStrength2020 in light of the current COVID-19 crisis. It seems unlikely that ArgStrenght2020 could have taken place in normal fashion. As the workshop aims at presenting preliminary works and rests upon discussions, personal communication is a central component.

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.
