1st International Workshop on Argument and Agreement and Assurance (AAA 2013) Kanagawa, Japan

OVERVIEW:


Submissions are invited for the 1st International Workshop on Argument for Agreement and Assurance (AAA 2013). The workshop will be held in

Keio University Hiyoshi Campus, Kanagawa, Japan, on October 27-28, 2013, as part of the Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence

international symposia on AI (JSAI-isAI) 2013.

Argumentation has now become an interdisciplinary challenging research area in AI aiming at formalizing various aspects of human or/and

computer software argument in terms of computation, and applying those knowledge to various fields. Scope of argumentation in AI includes

human arguments appeared in television, newspapers, WWW, etc. and also artificial arguments constructed from structured knowledge with

logical language and inference rules. Results of argumentation in AI are widely applicable to various fields such as consensus building,

agreement formation, multiagent systems, semantic web, recommendation systems, argument mining, learning, belief revisions, chance

discovery, safety engineering, etc.

In particular, safety engineering is a research area that is interested in the use of an evidence-based argument often called a safety

case, assurance case or dependability case. Nowadays, it is becoming necessary for certification bodies to issue a license to developing

and operating bodies, for system stakeholders to make agreement, for system administrators to achieve accountability, etc. AAA 2013

contributes to deepen mutual understanding between researchers working on argumentation theory in AI and researchers working on agreement

and assurance technologies through arguments.

AAA 2013 solicits contributions from broad range of researchers related to argumentation in AI and especially welcomes contributions across

argumentation and systems assurance. AAA 2013 seeks high-quality original submission of full papers limited to 14 pages including figures,

references, etc. All submissions will be rigorously peer reviewed with double blind. Selected papers will be included in JSAI-isAI 2013

post-proceedings as a volume of LNAI published by Springer Verlag.

AIMS AND SCOPE:


AAA 2013 aims to deepen mutual understanding between researchers working on argumentation theory in AI and researchers working on agreement

and assurance technologies through arguments, and to share current limitations and problems of argumentation in AI in terms of both theory

and practice. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

engineering, multi-agent systems, practical reasoning, belief revision, learning, semantic web, etc.
- Agreement and assurance technologies through arguments including
safety cases, assurance cases and dependability cases, etc.
- Tools for argumentation systems, dialogue systems, argument-based
stakeholders' agreement, argument-based accountability achievement,

argument-based open systems dependability, argument-based verification and validation, etc.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS:


We welcome and encourage the submission of high quality, original papers, which are not simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere.

Papers should be written in English, formatted according to the Springer Verlag LNCS style in a pdf form, which can be obtained from

Springer Online, and not exceed 14 pages including figures, references, etc. If you use a word file, please follow the instruction of the

format, and then convert it into a pdf form. Here is the submission page.

If a paper is accepted, at least one author of the paper must register the workshop and present it.

PROCEEDINGS:


A printed volume of the proceedings will be available at the workshop. Springer Verlag has agreed to publish selected papers of the

workshop in the JSAI-isAI 2013 post-proceedings as a volume of LNAI. Thus, the authors of papers presented at the workshop will be asked to

extend their contributions, possibly incorporating the results of the workshop discussion, to be included in the workshop post-proceedings,

after another round of refereeing.

VENUE:



The workshop will be held at Raiosha Building, Keio University, Kanagawa, JAPAN.
