30 June - 1 July 2014, Workshop "Arguing on the Web 2.0"

Date: 30 June - 1 July 2014
Location: Doelenzaal, Singel 425, Amsterdam
Costs: free
Deadline: 28 February 2014

In this workshop, we aim to bring together philosophers, computer scientists, argumentation scholars, and experts in persuasive communication to discuss the nature and dynamics of argumentation on the Internet, how new technologies change the argumentative practices of users, what skills and expertise become critical in such a new info-ecology, how ICT can be used to foster rather than hamper critical reflection and debate, and what implications this should have for education, societal change and policy making.

For more information, see http://www.sintelnet.eu/content/arguing-web-20-0 or contact Ulle Endriss ().

We welcome contributions on the conference topics from all relevant disciplines, with special emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches. The deadline for submission is February 28, 2014.
