TPLP Special Issue on Argumentation and Logic Programming - Frontiers and Relations

This webpage is on the special issue of the Journal of Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP) on Argumentation and Logic Programming - Frontiers and Relations. Find below the call for papers.


Given the large variety of existing logical formalisms, it is of utmost importance to select the most adequate one for a specific purpose, e.g. for representing the knowledge relevant for a particular application or for using the formalism as a modeling tool for problem-solving. Logic programming, as well as abstract and structured argumentation, are some of the most studied formalisms in recent times. By now, all mature conferences concerned with Artificial Intelligence or Knowledge Representation in particular, like the prestigious AAAI, IJCAI, ECAI and KR, list argumentation and logic programming as key topics of interest.

Both fields of research are intimately intertwined in many ways. For instance, research topics like intertranslatability of semantics, replaceability of sub-theories, realizability of candidate sets as well as splittings methods and many further which have been first considered for logic programming lead to similarly motivated studies in the field of formal argumentation. Moreover, the strong relationship between logic programming and formal argumentation is also evidenced by different translations of one into the other and back, using argumentation to explain logic programming models, and using logic programming systems to implement argumentation-based languages.

In this broad field, the current special issue aims at new research results, surveys or position papers regarding formal argumentation and logic programming.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:


We appreciate if you declare your interest to submit a paper to this special issue in advance by sending an email to the guest editors (with a working title and a preliminary abstract for your paper).


We welcome entirely new papers as well as extended and revised versions of previously accepted papers from relevant workshops and conferences. In the latter case, the submitted paper should add substantial (at least 30%) new material, and the previous paper(s) must be properly cited in the submission.

Paper submission is open. Papers should be submitted via the TPLP online submission system). In the first step please select the type of your submission (e.g. Original Article) and then follow the submission procedure. For the special issue option, please choose Argumentation and Logic Programming - Frontiers and Relations.

When preparing your manuscript please follow the TPLP instructions for contributors.


Please do not hesitate to contact us in case you have any inquiries concerning the special issue.
