1st Workshop on Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence and Philosophy:
computational and philosophical perspectives


Part of the 11th Symposium of the Italian Association for the Artificial

Brescia, December 1-3, 2010

Argumentation is an important and exciting research topic that cuts
across a variety of disciplines: Philosophy, Psychology, Communications
Studies and Computer Science, in particular Artificial Intelligence. In
spite of the wide range of disciplines interested in Argumentation,
scientific communities tend to be organized along disciplinary
boundaries, with only moderate integration occurring between
computational models and philosophical theories of Argumentation. This
workshop aims to rectify this situation, bringing together people
from various disciplines (most notably, Artificial Intelligence,
Philosophy, and Psychology) and asking them to compare their methods and
results in the study of Argumentation.

The “Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence and Philosophy:
computational and philosophical perspectives” workshop will be hosted by
the University of Brescia, Italy, in the context of the 11th Symposium
on Artificial Intelligence of the Italian Association for Artificial
Intelligence (AI*IA 2010), December 1-3. The expected date of the
workshop, December 1, is to be confirmed (a possible change to December
2/3 depends on organizational reasons).

Submissions are invited for full papers, in English or Italian, no
longer than 8 pages (including references), presenting original research
on Argumentation from a philosophical and/or computational perspective
(see details below). Each contribution will be reviewed.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Analysis of controversies
