Introductory Course

Introduction to Formal Argumentation,
Dov M. Gabbay (Bar-Ilan University, UK) and Massimiliano Giacomin (University of Brescia, Italy)

The goal of the course is to introduce the research field of computational argumentation to students, young researchers, and other non-specialists, and to foster a sound understanding of its foundations, basic models adopted, fundamental methods and techniques. The course covers both abstract argumentation, which abstracts away the structure of arguments and the nature of their relations, and structured argumentation, which deals with how an argument is structured and how relationship among arguments, such as attack and support, are derived.
