SAFA2018 - The Second International Workshop on Systems and Algorithms for Formal Argumentation

Computational models of argumentation are approaches that deal with the representation and interaction of arguments and counterarguments. These models can be applied in all areas that benefit from automatic decision-support such as medicine, accounting, chemistry, and law. Many of these models were inspired by works within the fields of non-monotonic reasoning and logic programming and therefore share the sometimes considerable computational complexity of these approaches.
