COST AT Argumentation day, September 10 and 11

At MALLOW in Torino on Thursday September 10 and Friday September 11 an event on new ideas in argumentation will be held.

The event will be supported by COST Agreement Technologies (Action IC0801).

The topic of the day will be new directions in argumentation, such as temporal dynamics, fibring of argumentation frameworks, modal logics of argumentation, modal provability foundations for argumentation, etc.

The day will start with the MALLOW plenary session invited speaker Prof. Dov Gabbay
