After the successful edition of the Workshop on Argument strength which was held in Bochum in 2016, a second edition is organised in April 2018 in Toulouse.
The strength of an argument depends on many parameters (e.g. the plausibility of its premises, the nature of the link between the premises and the conclusion, or the relations between this argument and the other ones). This workshop aims at gathering experts on argumentation from different fields (artificial intelligence, logic, philosophy,...) to discuss the questions related to the strength of arguments. Such questions include (but are not limited to)
This edition of Argument Strength will be joint with a

include alternative semantics for argumentation (in

argumentation and strategical aspects of argumentation
Authors are invited to submit an abstract (500-1000 words) related to the above or any other questions on the topic of argument strength to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 20th, 2018.
