The Fourth ArgDiaP Conference:
"Argumentation and Artificial Intelligence"
(„Argumentacja i sztuczna inteligencja”)
19 December 2009
Warsaw, ul. Koszykowa 86, room 337
Polish-Japanese Institute of Information Technology
After the successful edition at Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University (2008/09), ArgDiaP 2009/10 is held at Polish-Japanese Institute of Information Technology in Warsaw. The hosts of the meetings are: Magdalena Kacprzak (contact: kacprzak (at) pjwstk.edu.pl) and Paweł Rembelski.
This meeting of the series ArgDiaP is devoted to the methodology used in argumentation studies in computer science. A special attention is drawn to those aspects of argumentation which are important in Artificial Intelligence. In particular, among many mathematical, logical and linguistic tools used for computational models of arguments, we should distinguish: game theory, processing of natural language, corpus analysis or engineering ontology.
Connections between Theory of Argumentation (TA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are very strong. On the one hand, AI affected development of TA by providing formal tools for analysis, evaluation and visualization of arguments. On the other hand, models of TA influenced AI in the domains such as semantics of logical programs, implementation of medical diagnostic systems or analysis of negotiation dialogs. Mutual interaction between AI and TA found many applications e.g. in reasoning in law, medicine or e-commerce.
