1st CALL FOR PAPERS

2nd Workshop on Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence and Philosophy: computational and philosophical perspectives (ARGAIP-2013) - Workshop of the XIII Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AI*IA 2013)

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.
