In 2008/09, the ArgDiaP initiative has started the series of workshops. The meetings were launched as the response to the need for interdisciplinary exchange of expertise and experience between researchers who are interested in argumentation but who are still concerned with different fields of science such as philosophy, linguistic, logic, computer science, mathematics, psychology, etc. We hope that these meetings will be an occasion to start a heated discussion on various aspects of the argumentation process.
The series of meetings begins with a general consideration on the methods of modeling the cognitive processes – their possibilities, limitations and applications. The representation of the argumentation process uses different formal tools such as non-monotonic logics, the models of beliefs change uses doxastic and dynamic logics and the representation of dialog uses methods like game theory or dialog logics. These studies’ results can be applied in many fields like computer science, multi-agent systems and artificial intelligence. How we can proceed such kind of argumentation modeling, what formal tools we usually use, what we are still unable to model and what are our limits and challenges. On our first meetings we would like to raise these and much more questions as a matter for discussion.
