      CALL FOR PAPERS


      TAFA 2011@IJCAI

      First International Workshop on the Theory and Applications of Formal Argumentation (TAFA-2011)

      Barcelona, Spain, 16 July 2011

      http://www.csd.abdn.ac.uk/~niroren/TAFA-11/Welcome.html


      About TAFA 2011
      --------------------------

      Recent years have witnessed a rapid growth of interest in formal models of argumentation and their application in diverse sub-fields and domains of application of AI. Argumentation thus shows great promise as a theoretically-grounded tool for a wide range of applications. This workshop aims at contributing to the realisation of this promise, by promoting and fostering uptake of argumentation as a viable AI paradigm with wide ranging application, and providing a forum for further development of ideas and the initiation of new and innovative collaborations. TAFA therefore encourages submission of papers on formal theoretical models of argumentation and application of such models in (sub-fields of) AI, and evaluation of models, both theoretical (in terms of formal properties) and practical (in concretely developed applications). We also particularly encourage work on theories and applications developed through inter-disciplinary collaborations.

      With the above aims and intended impact in mind, the workshop will include an extended panel session inviting leading researchers in argumentation and in sub-fields of AI in which argumentation has been applied. The panel session will address the topic: `The future of argumentation: what is its added value and how we communicate this to researchers in the Artificial Intelligence community and beyond.'


      Topics
      ---------

      The workshop solicits papers dealing with, but not limited to, the following topics:

      • Properties of formal models of argumentation
      • Instantiations of abstract argumentation frameworks
      • Relationships amongst different argumentation frameworks
      • Argumentation and other Artificial Intelligence techniques
      • Evaluation of formal models of argumentation
      • Validation and evaluation of applications of argumentation


      Submission Guidelines
      --------------------------------

      Submission to the workshop will take place via the EasyChair system, and will be anonymously reviewed. Contributors must submit papers (no longer than 15 pages) in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (style). Formatting instructions, as well as the style and sample files can be found here:
