7th International Conference on Computational Models of Argument

12th - 14th September 2018

Workshop 2: Argumentation and Society (ArgSoc)

11 September 2018, Institute for Philosophy and Sociology, Polish Academy of Sciences (IFiS PAN), Warsaw PL

Chair: Katie Atkinson, Dept. of Computer Science, University of Liverpool UK

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):

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
