1-2 December 2016, Workshop "Argument Strength", Bochum, Germany

Date: 1-2 December 2016
Location: Bochum, Germany
Deadline: 1 August 2016

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.
