ABOUT THIS BOOK:

This volume is a systematic, expansive presentation of the major
achievements in the intersection between two fields of inquiry:
Argumentation Theory and Artificial Intelligence. Contributions from
international researchers who have helped shape this dynamic area
offer a progressive development of intuitions, ideas and techniques,
from philosophical backgrounds, to abstract argument systems, to
computing arguments, to the appearance of applications producing
innovative results. Each chapter features extensive examples to ensure
that readers develop the right intuitions before they move from one
topic to another.

In particular, the book exhibits an overview of key concepts in
Argumentation Theory and of formal models of Argumentation in AI.
After laying a strong foundation by covering the fundamentals of
argumentation and formal argument modeling, the book expands its focus
to more specialized topics, such as algorithmic issues, argumentation
in multi-agent systems, and strategic aspects of argumentation.
Finally, as a coda, the book explores some practical applications of
argumentation in AI and applications of AI in argumentation.

Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence is sure to become an
essential resource for graduate students and researchers working in
Autonomous Agents, AI and Law, Logic in Computer Science, Electronic
Governance, and Multi-agent Systems. The book is suitable both as a
comprehensive introduction to the field, and also as a highly
organized and accessible reference for established researchers.

The book is written for researchers and postgraduate students working
in artificial intelligence, AI and law, logic in computer science,
electronic democracy, multi-agent systems, etc.
