                 CALL FOR PAPERS -- ADVENTURES IN ARGUMENTATION

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    There is now a substantial literature on argumentation in artificial
    intelligence. Many interesting proposals have been made, and there is
    increasing interest in applying argumentation in various domains.

    However, there are also many problems surrounding proposals for
    argumentation, both at the theoretical level and at the applications
    level. Problems include computational complexity, viable
    implementations, semantics for arguments, richer ontologies for
    describing different kinds of argument, incorporation of domain or
    world knowledge in argumentation systems, handling time in
    argumentation, handling uncertainty in argumentation, presentation of
    arguments to non-technical users, finding applications where users can
    use the results of argumentation, the need for toolkits, and so on. We
    need to better understand these problems, and many others besides, and
    some of them seem to call for bold new proposals.

    This workshop is intended to be a small informal workshop for
    researchers in the area of argumentation to present ongoing research
    and ideas. Furthermore, we would like to encourage papers that are
    speculative or even provocative positions, with a view to having a
    lively and interesting workshop.

    The workshop will be held in conjunction with the Sixth European
    Conference on Symbolic and Quantitative Approaches to Reasoning with
    Uncertainty, in Toulouse, France.
