10 December 2014, 14th workshop on Computational Models of Natural Argument (CMNA 2014), Krakow, Poland

Date: 10 December 2014
Location: Krakow, Poland
Deadline: 31 October 2014

The series of workshops on Computational Models of Natural Argument acts to nurture and provide succor to the ever growing community working on Argument and Computation, a field developed in recent years overlapping Argumentation Theory and Artificial Intelligence.

The workshop focuses on the issue of modelling "natural" argumentation. Naturalness may involve the use of means which are more visual than linguistic to illustrate a point, such as graphics or multimedia. Or to the use of more sophisticated rhetorical devices, interacting at various layers of abstraction. Or the exploitation of "extra-rational" characteristics of the audience, taking into account emotions and affective factors.

The workshop encourages submissions in three categories:
- Long papers, either reporting on completed work or offering a polemic discussion on a burning issue (up to 10 pages).
- Short papers describing work in progress (up to 5 pages).
- Demonstration of implemented systems: submissions should be accompanied by written reports (up to 3 pages).
Deadline for submissions: 31 October 2014
