New Journal: Argument & Computation



              Accepting Submissions Now



Argument and Computation aims to promote the interaction and
cross-fertilisation between the fields of argumentation theory and
computer science. It will be of interest to researchers in the fields
of artificial intelligence, multi-agent systems, computer science,
logic, philosophy, argumentation theory, psychology, cognitive
science, game theory and economics. Topics of interest include, but
are not limited to:

   * Argumentation and cognitive architectures
   * Argumentation and computational game theory
   * Argumentation and defeasible reasoning
   * Argumentation and nonmonotonic logics
   * Argumentation and Decision Theory
   * Argumentation and Logic Programming
   * Argumentation and game semantics
   * Software for teaching argumentation skills
   * Argumentation-based interaction protocols
   * Argumentation-based semantics of programs
   * Argumentation in natural language processing
   * Argumentation in human computer interaction
   * Argumentation in multi-agent systems
   * Computational models of natural argument
   * Dialogue games and conversation policies
   * Dispute resolution and mediation systems
   * Electronic democracy and public deliberation
   * Legal and medical applications
   * Models of bargaining and economic interaction
   * Reasoning about action through argumentation
   * Computational tools for argumentation support

In order to distinguish itself from the competition, the new journal
will not solicit papers that are wholly within the theory of
argumentation without application (practical or theoretical) with in
artificial intelligence or computer science, nor will it solicit
computational work that fails to employ argumentation as a core focus.

The journal will accept full articles, describing novel theoretical or
applied research in any of the areas of interest; reviews, condensing
and critiquing an appropriate subfield of research; system
descriptions, focusing on implementations (typically offering online
access or downloadable code) and letters, providing pithy polemic on
burning issues
