      (apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement)


      5th International Conference on


      Pitlochry, Scotland, September 9-12, 2014




      Argumentation is an exciting research topic in artificial
      intelligence, with a broad spectrum of research activities ranging from
      theory to applications. The International Conference on Computational
      Models of Argument (COMMA) is a regular forum for presentation and
      exchange of the latest research results related to computational aspects
      of argumentation. After the successful editions in Liverpool (2006);
      Toulouse (2008); Desenzano del Garda (2010); and Vienna (2012); COMMA
      2014 will be held in Scotland in September 2014.


      Topics include, but are not limited to:

      * Formal, semi-formal and informal models for argumentation
      * Dialogue based on argumentation
      * Strategies in argumentation
      * Argumentation and game theory
      * Argumentation and probability
      * Argumentation and narrative
      * Analogical argumentation
      * Computational properties of argumentation
      * Reasoning about action and time with argumentation
      * Decision making based on argumentation
      * Argumentation in agent and multi-agent systems
      * Argumentation for coordination and coalition formation
      * Argumentation-based negotiation
      * Argumentation, trust and reputation
      * Argument mining
      * Argumentation and computational linguistics
      * Argumentation and human-computer interaction
      * Systems for learning through argument
      * Implementation of argumentation systems
      * Tools for supporting argumentation


      In addition to papers about theoretical results (in the conference's regular track),
      we encourage the submission of original papers about innovative applications,
      e.g., in law, medicine, e-democracy, risk assessment, intelligent user
      interfaces, recommender systems. Innovative applications papers will be
      assessed in an equally rigorous reviewing procedure as regular track


      As in the previous edition, a session will be organized for the demonstration
      of innovative working applications and tools. Systems of interest include
      (but are not limited to):

      * Innovative applications in law, medicine, e-democracy, risk assessment,
      intelligent user interfaces, recommender systems
      * Argumentation-based reasoners
      * Systems for generating arguments from knowledge bases
      * Systems for editing, presenting and judging arguments and counterarguments
      * Collaborative and social systems based on argumentation
      * Simulations of dialogue-based argumentation
      * Argumentation-based agents and multi-agent systems
      * Decision support systems based on argumentation

      All those intending to demonstrate a system should notify the
      demonstrations coordinator (Federico Cerutti).
      Where a demonstration is not connected to a paper in a track, a two page
      extended abstract about the system must be submitted for review. Accepted
      extended abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings.

      For those demonstrations that are connected to a paper in the standard
      track or innovative applications track, no separate statement about
      the demonstration should be submitted.


      We invite submission of original and unpublished work. Parallel
      submission to journals or other conferences or workshops with
      published proceedings is not permitted.

      Paper submission will be managed through EasyChair. Submission
      sites for regular, innovative applications track and extended demonstrator
      abstracts will open on March 1st.

      Page limits for all paper types are as follows.

      - Regular track papers (max. 12 pages)
      - Innovative applications track papers (max. 12 pages)
      - Demonstration extended abstract (max. 2 pages)

      Authors should prepare their submission following the instructions by IOS Press.


      Paper submission deadline: March 30, 2014
      (regular and innovative applications

      Demonstration extended abstract
      submission deadline: April 15, 2014

      Review rebuttal phase: May 7 - 9, 2014

      Notification of acceptance: May 15, 2014

      Final version of accepted papers: June 15, 2014


      The proceedings for the conference will be published by IOS Press in
      the "Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications" series.
      The length of regular track and innovative applications track papers
      should not exceed 12 pages, the length of demonstration extended
      abstracts should not exceed 2 pages.


      A best student paper award will be awarded.
