Introduction to structured argumentation
(IOS Press, 2014-02)
In abstract argumentation, each argument is regarded as atomic. There is no internal structure to an argument. Also, there is no specification of what is an argument or an attack. They are assumed to be given. This abstract ...
Collective argumentation: A survey of aggregation issues around argumentation frameworks
(IOS Press, 2017-05-09)
Dung's argumentation frameworks have been applied for over twenty years to the analysis of argument justification. This representation focuses on arguments and the attacks among them, abstracting away from other features ...
Formalization of argument accrual: acceptability semantics and dialectical proof procedure
(IOS Press, 2013-09)
Argumentation is a powerful paradigm able to formalize commonsense reasoning, finding application in different domains such as automated reasoning, decision making, legal dispute, automated negotiation, etc. However, most ...

Judgement aggregation in multi-agent argumentation
(Oxford University Press, 2017-02)
Given a set of conflicting arguments, there can exist multiple plausible opinions about which arguments should be accepted, rejected or deemed undecided. We study the problem of how multiple such judgements can be aggregated. ...
Using argument strength for building dialectical bonsai
Argumentation in AI provides an inconsistency-tolerant formalism capable of establishing those pieces of knowledge that can be accepted despite having information in contradiction. Computation of accepted arguments tends ...
Defeasible logic programming: DeLP-servers, contextual queries, and explanations for answers
(Taylor & Francis, 2014-02)
Argumentation represents a way of reasoning over a knowledge base containing possibly incomplete and/or inconsistent information, to obtain useful conclusions. As a reasoning mechanism, the way an argumentation reasoning ...
Agents that learn how to generate arguments from other agents
Learning how to argue is a key ability for a negotiator agent. In this paper, we propose an approach that allows agents to learn how to build arguments by observing how other agents argue in a negotiation context. Particularly, ...
Existence, computability and stability for solutions of the diffusion equation with general piecewise constant argument
We study the solution of a class of PDE with piecewise constant argument of generalized type. Separation of variables leads to a solution formed by a series of products. In previous works, the convergence and bounds of the ...
