In this paper, the problem of deriving sensible information from a collection of argumentation systems coming from different agents is addressed. The underlying argumentation theory is Dung’s one: each argumentation system gives both a set of arguments and the way they interact (i.e., attack or non-attack) according to the corresponding agent. The(More)
Several logical languages have been considered in AI for encoding compactly preference relations over a set of alternatives. In this paper, we analyze both the expressiveness and the spatial efficiency (succinctness) of such preference representation languages. The first issue is concerned with the nature of the preorders that can be encoded (for instance,(More)
In this paper, we investigate the revision of argumentation systems à la Dung. We focus on revision as minimal change of the arguments status. Contrarily to most of the previous works on the topic, the addition of new arguments is not allowed in the revision process, so that the revised system has to be obtained by modifying the attack relation only. We(More)
We present new prudent semantics within Dung's theory of argumentation. Under such prudent semantics, two arguments cannot belong to the same extension whenever one of them attacks indirectly the other one. We argue that our semantics lead to a better handling of controversial arguments than Dung's ones. We compare the prudent inference relations induced by(More)
Change in abstract argumentation frameworks (AFs) is a very active topic. Especially, the problem of enforcing a set E of arguments, i.e., ensuring that E is an extension (or a subset of an extension) of a given AF F , has received a particular attention in the recent years. In this paper, we define a new family of enforcement operators, for which(More)
Recently, (Dunne et al. 2009; 2011) have suggested to weight attacks within Dung’s abstract argumentation frameworks, and introduced the concept of WAF (Weighted Argumentation Framework). However, they use WAFs in a very specific way for relaxing attacks. The aim of this paper is to explore ways to take advantage of attacks weights within an argumentation(More)
Many coherence-based approaches to inconsistency handling within propositional belief bases have been proposed so far. They consist in selecting one or several preferred consistent subbases of the given (usually inconsistent) stratified belief base (SBB), then using classical inference from some of the selected subbases. Unfortunately, deciding the(More)
