Formal Methods in Argument Reconstruction

20-21. September 2012

Introduction

WORKSHOP WEBSITE

GAP.8 WEBSITE

 

The purpose of this international workshop is to bring together researchers who apply formal methods, widely understood, to natural language argumentation in order to provide a reconstruction which can provide the basis for an evaluation.

 

A related objective is to make the state of the art accessible to audiences who predominantly reconstruct natural language argumentation with more traditional formal or informal tools.
