Summary Report of The First International Competition on Computational Models of Argumentation
Despite being the first competition in this area, the high number of competitors entered, and differences in results, suggest that the competition will help shape the landscape of ongoing developments in argumentation theory solvers.
Social Abstract Argumentation
A class of semantics is proposed for these new Social Abstract Argumentation Frameworks and some important non-trivial properties are proved which are crucial for their applicability in Social Networks.
Comparing the expressiveness of argumentation semantics
This work provides new translations between semantics as well as new translational impossibility results that allow us to draw a hierarchy for the expressiveness of argumentation semantics.
Hunt for the Collapse of Semantics in Infinite Abstract Argumentation Frameworks
In this work we discuss examples of infinite abstract argumentation frameworks (AFs). Our focus is mainly on existence of extensions of semantics such as semi-stable and stage semantics, as opposed
ABA+: Assumption-Based Argumentation with Preferences
A novel approach to account for preferences in a well known structured argumentation formalism, Assumption-Based Argumentation (ABA), which incorporates object-level preferences directly into the attack relation to reverse attacks.
Dialog-Based Online Argumentation
A novel approach to online argumentation that avoids the pitfalls of unstructured systems such as asynchronous threaded discussions and is usable by any participant without training while still supporting the full complexity of real-world argumentation is proposed.
Ranking-Based Semantics for Argumentation Frameworks
A new family of semantics which rank-orders arguments from the most acceptable to the weakest one(s) is proposed, and a set of rational postulates that such semantics could satisfy are proposed.
A Comparative Study of Ranking-Based Semantics for Abstract Argumentation
A general comparison of all these ranking-based semantics with respect to the proposed proper- ties is provided, to underline the differences of behavior between the existing semantics.
Study on Sentence Relations in the Automatic Detection of Argumentation in Legal Cases
We report the results of experiments which prove that the analysis of relations between sentences increase the accuracy in the automatic detection of arguments in legal cases. We treat the search of
