The 7th COMMA conference (12-14 Sept 2018) is a regular forum for presentation and exchange of the latest research results related to computational aspects of argumentation. Initiated in 2006, the first conference was organised in Liverpool and the success of the event led to establishing biennal COMMA conferences hosted in: Toulouse France (COMMA 2008), Desenzano del Garda Italy (COMMA 2010), Vienna Austria (COMMA 2012), Pitlochry UK (COMMA 2014) and Potsdam Germany (COMMA 2016).
This year, the invited speakers are Marcello D’Agostino, Department of Philosophy, University of Milan Italy; Noam Slonim, IBM Haifa Research Lab Israel; and Francesca Toni, Department of Computing, Imperial College London UK. In addition to the main conference track and the innovative applications track, the COMMA program includes also system demonstrations (coordinated by John Lawrence, Centre for Argument Technology, University of Dundee UK) and industry afternoon (coordinated by Barbara Konat, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań & sentimenti.pl PL and Jakub Zygucki, Foundation Optimum Pareto PL).
COMMA 2018 is organised by the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw and is chaired by Sanjay Modgil, King’s College London UK and Katarzyna Budzynska, Centre for Argument Technology, Polish Academy of Sciences & University of Dundee PL & UK.
