1st International Conference on Computational Models of Argument (COMMA06)

does this look awesome or what? Imagine if you could computationally model the argumentation and communication in economic and political behavior. To say nothing of the AI applications too!

1st International Conference on Computational Models of Argument (COMMA06)

Organised by the ASPIC project (www.argumentation.org)
The University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK
11th-12th September 2006 (provisional)

General Chair: Professor Michael J. Wooldridge
Programme Chair: Paul E. Dunne

Over the past decade argumentation has become increasingly important in Artificial Intelligence. It has provided a fruitful way of approaching non-monotonic and defeasible reasoning, deliberation about action, and agent communication scenarios such as negotiation. In application domains such as law, medicine and e-democracy it has come to be seen as an essential part of the reasoning.

Successful workshops have been associated with major Artificial Intelligence Conferences, notably the workshop series on Computational Models of Natural Argument held in conjunction with IJCAI and ECAI, and the series of ArgMAS workshops held in conjunction with AAMAS. The time is now right for a conference dedicated to all aspects of computational argument.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
* argumentation frameworks
* argument schemes
* argument in agent systems
* argument based negotiation
* computational properties of argumentation
* decision making based on argumentation
* dialogue based on argument
* e-democracy applications
* legal applications of argument
* medical applications of argument
* reasoning and argument about action.

A call for paper will be issued shortly. To be placed on an electronic mailing list for this conference e-mail:
