* Call for Participation: Third Workshop on Argument Strength *

When: October 11-13, 2021
Form: Online

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. Such questions
-Which factors influence the strength of an argument?
-What are the pros and cons of different formal representations of argument
-How to formally model qualifiers on the conclusions of arguments?
-How does argument strength propagate when inferences are chained?
-How do arguments accrue?
-Can weaker arguments defeat and/or defend stronger arguments?
-When do more specific arguments defeat more general arguments and vice
-How do formal and informal approaches to argument strength relate?
-How do preferences assigned to premises influence the evaluation of
