==Aims & Scope==

Argumentation is the study of the processes and activities involving the 
production and exchange of arguments, where arguments are attempts to 
persuade someone or something by giving reasons for accepting a particular 
conclusion as evident. As such, argumentation provides procedures for 
making and explaining decisions and is able to capture diverse kinds of 
reasoning and dialogue activities in a formal but still intuitive way, 
enabling the integration of different specific techniques and the 
development of trustable applications.

For these reasons, over the last two decades formal argumentation has 
become a main research topic in Artificial Intelligence. Given that the 
study of argumentation is inherently interdisciplinary, the goal of the 
workshop is to stimulate discussions and promote scientific collaboration 
among researchers involved in the field of argumentation from different 
perspectives, including computational, linguistic, philosophical and 
psychological aspects. Besides researchers having argumentation as a major 
research interest, scholars from research fields indirectly related to 
argumentation (including non-monotonic reasoning, logic programming, 
linguistics, natural language processing, philosophy and psychology, just 
to mention a few of them) are particularly welcome, both to discuss 
foundations and issues in argumentation, and to present challenges and 
problems for which argumentation may represent a viable AI paradigm.

We invite submissions of the latest research results concerning 
applications and theory of computational argumentation to the 4th Workshop
on Advances In Argumentation In Artificial Intelligence (AI3 2020) that is 
a track of the 19th International Conference of the Italian Association 
for Artificial Intelligence (AIIA 2020).
The workshop is promoted by the Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence 
Working Group (

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Explainable AI with Argumentation
Persuasion systems
Formal, semi-formal and informal models for argumentation
Properties and evaluation of formal models of argumentation
Computational properties of argumentation
Traditional and ranking-based semantics
Instantiations of abstract argumentation frameworks
Implementation of argumentation systems
Relationships amongst different argumentation frameworks
Philosophical theories of argumentation
Argument mining
Argumentation in agent and multi-agent systems
Dialogue based on argumentation
Strategies in argumentation
Decision making based on argumentation
Argumentation-based negotiation
Argumentation, trust and reputation
Argumentation for coordination and coalition formation
Argumentation and other Artificial Intelligence techniques
Argumentation and game theory
Argumentation and probability
Argumentation and fuzzy-logic
Argumentation and narrative
Argumentation and computational linguistics
Argumentation and human-computer interaction
Reasoning about action and time with argumentation
Tools for supporting argumentation
Practical applications of formal models of argumentation
Systems for learning through argument
Argument-based machine learning
Validation and evaluation of applications of argumentation

 == Submissions ==

The workshop invites two types of submissions: full papers, possibly 
already submitted to other conferences or journals, and short papers, 
which are particularly suitable for presenting work in progress, software 
prototypes, extended abstracts of doctoral theses, or general overviews of 
research projects.

Authors are invited to submit their papers in English of up to 15 single 
spaced pages for full papers. Shorter works must not exceed 5 pages. 
All paper submissions will be done electronically, via the EasyChair 
system at the link: by 
selecting the track “Advances In Argumentation In Artificial Intelligence”.

All papers will be peer reviewed and final copies of papers for inclusion 
to the conference proceedings will be published on CEUR as “CEUR Workshop 
Proceedings AI*IA Series” (Scopus indexed). Manuscripts should be formatted 
using the Springer LNCS style (formatting instructions are available at

==Post-proceedings of selected and revised papers==

Authors of selected papers, accepted to the workshops, will be invited to 
submit a revised and extended version of their work to appear in a volume, 
published by an important international publisher. A selection of the best 
papers, accepted for the presentation at the workshops, will be invited to 
submit an extended version for publication on “intelligenza Artificiale”, the 
International Journal of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence, 
edited by IOS Press and indexed by Thomson Reuters’ “Emerging Sources Citation 
Index” and Scopus by Elsevier.

==Format of the video presentations==

Authors of accepted papers at the workshops will be requested to provide a 
video recorded presentation of their work. Presentations will be available 
to all members of the association. Videos must have a length between 5 and 8 
minutes. More details will be published in the workshop web page 
( ).
