Computational models of argumentation are approaches that deal with the representation and interaction of arguments and counterarguments. These models can be applied in all areas that benefit from automatic decision-support such as medicine, accounting, chemistry, and law. Many of these models were inspired by works within the fields of non-monotonic reasoning and logic programming and therefore share the sometimes considerable computational complexity of these approaches.
This workshop welcomes technical contributions in all areas dealing with algorithms and systems of formal argument. The workshop specifically welcomes preliminary works on the above topics. In particular, no systematic evaluations are needed for inclusion in the program. Finally, we welcome position papers that propose new tracks for the competition or discuss general matters related to it.
SAFA2018 will be hosted as a COMMA 2018 workshop, and will take place in Warsaw, Poland, 11th September 2018.
Organisers: Matthias Thimm, Federico Cerutti, Mauro Vallati
