This thesis aims at exploring the potential of heuristic search algorithms for Abstract Argumentation. Therefore specific backtracking search algorithms are presented, which support the use of heuristics. Thereafter several heuristics are defined which have been implemented as part of this thesis. These will then be experimentally compared among each other and with other approaches to Abstract Argumentation. For different problems in Abstract Argumentation a suitable heuristic is suggested. For example heuristics which analyse paths inside the graph structure of an abstract argumentation framework have proven useful.
