Workshop 2: Argumentation and Society (ArgSoc)
11 September 2018, Institute for Philosophy and Sociology, Polish Academy of Sciences (IFiS PAN), Warsaw PL
This workshop invites extended abstracts on ongoing research investigating the impact of argumentation on society at large. In particular, the workshop encourages research linking computational and informal approaches to argumentation with the social sciences, including (but not limited to):
- theoretical and experimental psychology
- media and communication studies
Note that the workshop is intended to be a forum for dissemination and discussion of work that is not necessarily fully matured. Hence the reviewing process will be relatively lightweight.
We welcome extended abstracts of no more than two pages, plus an additional page for references. Authors should prepare their submission following the instructions given by IOS Press and should include their names and affiliations. Submissions should follow the guidelines normally associated with short papers, and thus focus on outlining the motivation and significance of the work described, while giving only a brief overview of the technical contributions.
Extended abstracts can be submitted through EasyChair at
Post-proceedings: The possibility to publish a special issue of the Argument & Computation journal after ArgSoc and ArgPhil is under consideration.
- Extended abstract submission deadline (EXTENDED):
29 June9 July
- Notification of acceptance: 25 July
- Early registration deadline: 17 August
- Camera ready abstracts: 17 August
- ArgSoc workshop: 11 September
Programme will be announced mid August.
