With so many people in this geographical region working on computational models of argument, Nir Oren finally took the initiative to do what so many of us had been threatening to do: namely, to run a workshop meeting. So, the first meeting of what we hope will be an enthusiastic schedule of collaboration is being held today, and the whole ARG:dundee group is heading up to Aberdeen. If you’re interested in tracking it and finding out more, drop us an email, or join the LinkedIn group.
Prof. Henry Prakken from the Universities of Utrecht and Groningen in the Netherlands will be a SICSADistinguished Visitor with ARG:dundee for the month of July 2009. Over that period, we will be exploring models that combine different theories of argumentation. He will also be delivering talks at Dundee, Aberdeen and Edinburgh and offering a PhD workshop.
The Fourth International Workshop on Argumentation in Multi-Agent Systems (ArgMAS 2007) will be held in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, May 14-15, 2007 in Conjunction with AAMAS 2007. The deadline for submission’s is 5th February 2007.
The first International Conference on Computational Models of Argument is to be held in Liverpool in September 2006. Chris Reed sits on the programme committee, and the Dundee group has had several papers accepted.
CMNA workshop series: The 6th International Workshop on Computational Models of Natural Argument, CMNA 6 is to be held at ECAI 2006 in Trento in August. CMNA 7 will be running at IJCAI in Hyderabad in January 2007.
