Formal Argumentation at DBAI

Formal Argumentation: Formal Argumentation is an increasingly important area of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and nowadays present at all major AI conferences and in major AI journals. Formal Models of Argumentation are concerned with the representation of an argument, the representation of the relationship between arguments and solving conflicts between the arguments.

Formal Argumentation at DBAI: Starting with Stefan Woltran's WWTF funded project on "New Methods for Analyzing, Comparing, and Solving Argumentation Problems" in 2009 a group of researchers working on different aspects of Formal Argumentation has grown at DBAI. The aim of this page is to give an overview of the research & teaching activities of this group.

Ongoing Projects

Past Projects


In the spirit of research-driven teaching, we teach basics as well as more advanced concepts in formal argumentation to our students and encourage them to participate in our research in terms of students projects and theses.


We are actively developing systems for different kind of argumentation formalisms. Find below, a list of the major argumentation systems (co-)developed at the group.
