We invite submissions of the latest research results concerning applications and theory of computational argumentation to the 3rd Workshop on Advances In Argumentation In Artificial Intelligence (AI3 2019) that will be co-located with the 18th International Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AIIA 2019, http://aiia2019.mat.unical.it/).

Important dates

  • Submission deadline: 23 August extended to 30 August
  • Notification of Acceptance: 2 October
  • Conference and Workshop days: 19-22 November


Topics 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


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: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ai3-2019.

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 http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).

The option of organizing a special issue on the journal "Intelligenza Artificiale" (including selected papers subject to a second revision) is under consideration. For each accepted contribution, at least one of the authors is required to attend the conference and present the paper.
