2nd Workshop on Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence and Philosophy:
computational and philosophical perspectives (ARGAIP-2013)

Web site: 

Argumentation is an important and exciting research topic that cuts
across a variety of disciplines: Philosophy, Psychology, Communications
Studies, Linguistics and Computer Science, in particular Artificial
Intelligence. More specifically, argumentation theory involves different
ways for analyzing arguments and their relationships. In everyday life
arguments are "reasons to believe and reasons to act". Until recent
years, the idea of "argumentation" as the process of creating arguments
for and against competing claims, was a subject of interest to
philosophers and lawyers. In recent years, however, there has been a
growth of interest in the subject from formal and technical perspectives
in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence, and a wide use of
argumentation technologies in practical applications. Here,
argumentation is viewed as a mechanical procedure for interpreting
events, organizing and presenting documents, and making decisions about
actions. From a theoretical perspective, argumentation offers a novel
framework providing new light on classical forms of reasoning, such as
logical deduction, induction, abduction and plausible reasoning,
communication, explanations of advice, supporting discussion and
negotiation in computer-supported cooperative work. From a
human-computer interaction point of view, argumentation is a versatile
technique that facilitates natural system behavior and is more easily
understood by human users. 

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 and linguistic theories of
Argumentation. This workshop aims at rectifying this situation, bringing
together people from various disciplines (most notably, Artificial
Intelligence, Philosophy, Linguistics, and Psychology) and asking them
to compare their methods and results in the study of Argumentation.
