a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t This paper introduces the Dialogue Game Description Language (DGDL), a domain specific language for describing dialectical games. Communication is an important topic within agent research and is a fundamental factor in the development of robust and efficient multiagent systems. Similarly, argumentation has been(More)
Argumentation schemes capture common, stereotypical patterns of reasoning which are nondeductive and nonmonotonic. As interest in understanding these schemes from a theoretical point of view grows, so too does an awareness within computational work that these schemes might yield powerful techniques in a range of domains. This paper aims to perform two(More)
Argumentation schemes are argument forms that represent inferential structures of arguments used in everyday discourse, and in special contexts like legal argumentation, scientific argumentation, and especially in AI. Deductive forms of inference like modus ponens and disjunctive syllogism are very familiar. But some of the most common and interesting(More)
Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is an unusual syndrome caused by hypersensitivity to Aspergillus spores growing in the bronchii. Previous investigators have suggested that the IgE levels and precipitating antibodies may vary according to disease activity. We have been able to closely follow 12 out of a group of 40 ABPA patients with IgE and(More)
Individuals diagnosed with Crohn's disease are at an increased risk for developing low bone density. The exact cause of low bone mineral density in Crohn's disease patients has not been determined. The purpose of this study was to assess the incidence of low bone mineral density in premenopausal women with Crohn's disease and to determine the role diet(More)
